Romelu Lukaku scored on his return to Chelsea as they eased to an impressive 2-0 win at Arsenal on Sunday.
Reece James grabbed the second after Lukaku’s opener as Chelsea secured consecutive victories at the start of the Premier League.
When asked about his performance, Lukaku told Sky Sports: “Dominant, I would say. I try to improve every time, I have a long way to go but today was good to win. We have to win and keep going, the Premier League is a very competitive league.
“You saw a lot, not only from me but he team adapted really well and they made life very comfortable for me and I was not stressed coming into the game. I only had one thing on my mind, winning the game and I am delighted for the club and fans.”

I didn’t watch the Arsenal vs Chelsea match but I am pleased with the result and Lukaku’s goal moreso.
