Impressive: Watch Romelu Lukaku Epics Performance Against Arsenal
The Ex-Inter Milan striker received the ball with his back to goal on 15 minutes, shrugged off Pablo Mari as the ball was worked to Reece James on the right and then stayed onside to tap home his first English Premier League goal for the Blues.
Romelu Lukaku should have been given another on a plate moments later when James instead picked out Mason Mount, whose shot was deflected behind.
In second half of the game, Gunners shot-stopper Bernd Leno made an incredible save to deny Lukaku a debut double as he turned a bullet header onto the crossbar.
