Chelsea beat Arsenal 2-0 at the Emirate stadium to get the maximum 6 points from the first 2 matches.
Arsenal attacked in the opening minutes but Chelsea absorbed the pressure and gradually took control of the game. A swift counter attacking move in the 15th minute saw Lukaku score the first goal on his second debut for Chelsea. A good low cross from Reece James saw Lukaku tap in.
Chelsea continued to control the game and the second goal came in the 35th minute. Reece James, the assistant of the first goal, scored the goal with a fine shot into the net from close range.
Arsenal sometimes looked like getting a goal back with their fast attacking play. However they would have been 3 goals down had lukaku’s close range header got into the net late in the second half. All credit to the Arsenal goalkeeper for denying him.
Overall Chelsea were the dominant team and kept Arsenal at arm’s length.
This result sees Chelsea move to top of the premier league table. But on the same points with Liverpool, spurs and Brighton
