Roy Keane hails Chelsea’s performance against Arsenal and also insists Chelsea could have put seven past Arsenal.
Romelu Lukaku marked his second Blues debut with a goal inside 15 minutes before Reece James added a second in what was a fantastic performance by Thomas Tuchel’s men.
Lukaku came close to doubling his tally after seeing his header bounce off the bar and onto the line – but it wasn’t to matter with Chelsea walking away with all three points and leaving the home fans to boo their side at half-time and full-time.
Roy Keane insists Chelsea could’ve scored seven at the Emirates on Sunday while Sol Campbell was left feeling deflated by his former side’s performance.
In Roy Keane’s post-match analysis of Arsenal’s 2-0 defeat with Sky Sports, Keane said: “There was a real swagger about Chelsea.
“They toyed with Arsenal. It was very comfortable for them. Very comfortable.
“They scored two but it could have been five, six or seven if they really went for it. We saw the quality, the confidence, and the shortcomings of Arsenal.
“There are no hidings places on that pitch and Arsenal fell well short of what is required. It’s going to be a long season for them.”
Campbell added: “The gulf between experience and quality is massive everyone can see that. But we did allow Lukaku far too much time, space to receive the ball in the air or ground.
The two midfielders, especially Jorginho had too much time on the ball to dictate the play. Second half were in their faces and made it a little more difficult but still Chelsea have got another couple of gears to go.”
The result means Arsenal are without a goal or a point after their two opening games, leaving Arteta under pressure even at this early stage.
