Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku said his goal against London rivals Arsenal on Sunday, Belgium International’s first match against European champions, was his favorite of the 114 he had made in the Premier League.
Lukaku needed almost 15 minutes after Chelsea’s transfer of .5 97.5 million (13 133.08 million) from Inter Milan. What
The goal was Lukaku’s first for Chelsea, as the 28-year-old failed to find the net during his first term at the club, which ended seven years ago.
“It was great for me, great,” Lukaku said.
“You know how emotional it was for me. Obviously it was a tap, but the construction was good.
“We played very well, we won. We could have scored more runs, but it’s good to be here with that performance. We have to keep going.”
Lukaku, whose 24 league goals helped Inter win their first Serie A title in 11 years last season, said they still had room for improvement at Chelsea.
“You want to work hard for the team, you want to win and you want to score and you want to create opportunities,” he said.
“It’s something I’ve learned and worked hard on and keep working on.”
Chelsea, who are table toppers after the second round of fixtures, visit second-placed Liverpool on Saturday.
