Arsenal to face Chelsea in the second round of Premier League

Romelu Lukaku is set to make his Chelsea debut against Arsenal on Sunday

Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku will make his return to Chelsea for the first time after ten years and will be available to face Arsenal on Sunday afternoon at the Emirates Stadium after a quarantine period following his club-record €115 move from Inter Milan.

Chelsea kicked off their Premiere League campaign with a 3-0 win against Crystal Palace last Sunday.

Arsenal got off to a bad start, where they were beaten 2-0 by Brentford, with goals from Canós and Nørgaard, who gave their team a dream start to their first-ever Premier League game and their first top-flight game since 1947. Arsenal are now in the 17th place of the league and this loss adds immense pressure ahead of facing Chelsea.

Following Arsenal’s disappointing loss and Chelsea’s strong performance against Crystal Palace, Arsenal would be  the underdogs for the London derby even though they defeated Chelsea the last time they went head to head.

Chelsea has improved immensely since and even went on to win the UEFA Champions League.

Will Arsenal manage to win in the presence of new addition Lukaku? Or Will Lukaku kick-off his second Chelsea career with a positive result?
