On his second Stamford Bridge debut, Romelu Lukaku scored twice as Chelsea thrashed Aston Villa 3-0 on Saturday. 

Lukaku scoring his first goal at Stamford Bridge, Mateo Kovacic scoring, and Saul's encouraging start were three of the game's high points. 

1. Lukaku scores a goal at Stamford Bridge 

Romelu Lukaku scored his first club goal at Stamford Bridge on his 15th appearance and 22nd attempt at the goal. 

The Belgian international scored beautifully and reminded fans why the Blues paid €100 million for him. 

2. Mateo Kovacic

Mateo Kovacic scored and assisted a goal in the same game for the first time in Premier League history. 

Kovacic's overall performance was also fantastic, as he connected up with the Chelsea Attackers and generated some good chances. 

3. Chelsea's Promising Debut for Saul

Saul impressed on his debut start for the club. The Spaniard was composed on the ball and made some superb midfield challenges. 

Thomas Tuchel will be impressed by his performance, and the Spanish international might be a key part for Chelsea this season.
