Chelsea's Romelu Lukaku bullied Pablo Mari to score on debut vs Arsenal

Romelu Lukaku scored on his second Chelsea debut v Arsenal

Romelu Lukaku returned to Premier League action with a bang on Sunday afternoon at the Emirates.

Chelsea‘s record signing was handed a start against London rivals Arsenal and the brilliant Belgian scored the game’s opening goal in the 15th-minute.

Lukaku tapped into an empty net after being found by Reece James and it was a really well worked goal by Thomas Tuchel’s side.

Unsurprisingly, Lukaku was at the very heart of the entire move and he absolutely dominated Arsenal centre-back Pablo Mari.

Belgium’s greatest ever goalscorer held off the defender with ease when the ball arrived at his feet and then laid it off to a teammate.

Lukaku then charged into the penalty area and he swatted Mari away like a fly in order to get to the ball first.

The Arsenal man ended up on the turf, while his adversary was off celebrating a perfect second debut for Chelsea.
