Chelsea kept up their perfect start to the 2021-22 season by cruising to a 2-0 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
Reece James was given the freedom of the right flank for the visitors. He set up a tap-in for a debut goal for Romelu Lukaku after 15 minutes before doubling Chelsea’s lead later in the half with an unstoppable drive into the top corner.
Both sides created chances as the rain poured down in the second half. Rob Holding put a header wide from six yards for Arsenal, while Bernd Leno produced a stunning save to deny Lukaku.
Arsenal have lost their opening two games of this campaign and are currently in the bottom three. Chelsea have taken maximum points so far and will face Liverpool at Anfield next Saturday.
