Romelu Lukaku has described his Chelsea debut as "dominant" after bullying Arsenal in a routine win.

The striker has thrust straight into the starting line-up having completed a £97million return to Stamford Bridge last week, and took less than 15 minutes to score on his second debut.

It was a fearsome display after just a handful of training sessions with his new team-mates and, despite Arsenal's many shortcomings, a statement of title intentions.

Lukaku was asked by Sky Sports how he would sum up his debut in one word, and replied: "Dominant, I would say.

"I try to improve every time, I have a long way to go but today was good to win. We have to win and keep going, the Premier League is a very competitive league.

"I try, I try. At the end of the day, you want work hard for the team, score and create chances. I have worked on that and this team is very talented. They are the European champions and they want to keep building and I want to keep winning. We have to keep fighting and keep delivering performances like this.

"You saw a lot, not only from me but he team adapted really well and they made life very comfortable for me and I was not stressed coming into the game. I only had one thing on my mind, winning the game and I am delighted for the club and fans.

"It is good to start like this, I worked hard throughout the week, we knew wit was a big game and we did well. As an individual, I want to help the team and I want to continue doing that."
