Romelu Lukaku labels his own performance on second Chelsea debut as ‘dominant’ and aims cheeky dig at Arsenal

Romelu Lukaku enjoyed a dream second debut for Chelsea with a goal and man-of-the-match performance in their 2-0 win at Arsenal.

He opened his account with a simple tap in after initially starting the attack by holding off Arsenal defender Pablo Mari.

Lukaku scored his 114th Premier League goal and his first in his second debut for Chelsea, overtaking Ian Wright to become the competition’s 20th highest scoring player

When asked about how he rated his own performance, Lukaku said: “Dominant, I would say. Dominant.

“Like I said I try to improve every time, I have a long way to go but today was good, it was good to win and to start well.”

And when asked if his second debut could have gone any better, he said: “I’m very happy with the way we played really well, we dominated, we could have scored more.

“Now we have to keep working, keep building, keep getting stronger because the Premier League is a very competitive league.

“You want to work hard for the team, you want to win, you want to score, you want to create chances.

“Something that I’ve learned that I work on really hard and I keep working on it.”

He also couldn’t resist a cheeky comment at the Gunners after he was asked by their fans to play for them.

His response: “No thanks.”

It was a perfect afternoon for all involved with Chelsea as they made it two wins out of two and have yet to concede a goal.

That record will however come under serious threat when they travel to Anfield next week in a mouth-watering match against title rivals Liverpool.
