The Belgian made a return to Stamford Bridge after completing a £97.5m move from Inter Milan this month and netted his first goal in the game.

The Blues dominated and clinched a 2-0 victory over the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium to keep their start to the Premier League season perfect.

The other goal was scored by Reece James, who bagged the second as he slammed the ball into the roof of the net from Mason Mount’s pass.
