The staging of the Belgian Romelu Lukaku as a great reinforcement was decisive for Chelsea to achieve victory in the Emirates London derby against Arsenal (2-0), who assumed his inferiority unable to question the victory of his adversary.
Lukaku, great acquisition of the European champion, debuted in the Premier. An injury left him out in the match against Crystal Palace. Thomas Tuchel placed him at the start and it took a quarter of an hour to score and unbalance the local duel.
The Belgian scored in the 15th minute. He pushed a good pass from the right of Reece James who later, at 35, made the second by taking advantage of a ball sent by Mason Mount.
Arsenal hope that the addition of Norwegian Martin Odegaard will provide a quality leap and make use of their resources. Without the Scandinavian, presented to the Emirates public before the start of the match, it showed itself as a team without solutions.
Mikel Arteta did not find a way to stop Chelsea that works like a machine, prints a high rhythm to the game and triggers the demand on the rival. The Gunners who turned to Nuno Tavares and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang to unsettle the ‘blues’ have no goal.
There was no way. Lukaku was able to increase his income and that of Chelsea but he met Bernd Leno and wood.
The victory takes Thomas Tuchel’s team to the top of the standings, with five goals scored and none in two games, conceded same as Liverpool.
