In one of the expected football results of the Premier League weekend, Champions League winners piled the misery on Mikel Arteta with a 2-0 victory at the Emirates. Romelu Lukaku scored on his second Chelsea debut after re-signing for the club for £97.5m. He scored in the 15th minute with a tap in from close range from a low cross by Reece James.

James doubled the lead for the visitors with a superb finish after the hosts were left down a man on the right. Arsenal were then denied by referee Paul Tierney and VAR after Saka was brought down by James in the penalty area.

Managers Reaction

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta: “I see a lot of positives with the crowd and the team today. The way they supported the team from the beginning and at the end, I didn’t see any bad reactions with any of the players. I saw a good reaction.”

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel: “It’s a perfect start. We didn’t concede and we have two victories. This being a London derby gives us lots of confidence – this is what you need as we are a different group. Some players have left, some have come in. This is what you need, experiences together and good victories. There were moments where we suffered together. This is how a group is built.”
