Lukaku and Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta are set to meet again in the London derby today. The two faced each other on the 6th of April, 2014 — while Arteta was an Arsenal player — and it was an evening of bad luck for the Gunners.
Back then, Arteta who played as a midfielder under the reign of Arsene Wenger made a big mistake as he scored an own goal to keep Chelsea in the lead.
Romelo Lukaku added the score after he found the back of the net and by full-time, Chelsea was up with a scoreline of 3-0 against Arsenal.
But as they say, Arsenal has more often been outsmarting Chelsea even when they are at their lowest. They managed to beat the Champion League defenders 1-0 last, and history shows that Chelsea has only picked 1 point from their last 4 clashes.
It remains to be seen whether Lukaku will help Chelsea break their recent bad omen against their London rivals in his today's debut for the club.
