Free match highlights and report as £97.5m signing Romelu Lukaku scores and puts in man-of-the-match performance in Chelsea’s victory at the Emirates; Reece James scores other goal as Chelsea continue perfect start; Arsenal two defeats from two this season, without scorin

Club-record signing Romelu Lukaku scored and put in a dominant display on his second Chelsea debut as they beat Arsenal 2-0 at the Emirates on Super Sunday.

Nearly 10 years after his first debut, £97.5m summer signing Lukaku registered his first goal for the club, tapping home at close range from Reece James’ ball across the face of goal (15) after the Belgian’s superb hold-up play had triggered the move.

James doubled Chelsea’s lead with a clinical finish from the right side of the box with Arsenal too engrossed in Lukaku again (35), before the hosts had a strong penalty call denied by both Paul Tierney and VAR as Bukayo Saka went down under James’ challenge.
