  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! LUKAKU HAS HIS DEBUT GOAL!!!!! 1-0 CHELSEA!!!!! The Blues take the lead and Lukaku marks his second debut with a goal. He orchestrates the move by using his strength to fend off Mari before Kovacic feeds James on the right flank. The full-back delivers a precise low ball into the middle that the Belgian converts from six yards. A great start for the Blues and their new striker.

  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! JAMES HAMMERS HOME CHELSEA'S SECOND!!! 2-0!!! The Blues double their lead with another swift attacking move, which is brilliantly finished by James. Alonso works the ball to Lukaku before he is wiped out by Xhaka. The referee waves play on and Mount capitalises by picking out James in acres of space. He takes one touch before hammering an effort past Leno into the top-left corner.
