Lukaku scores first Stamford Bridge goals as Chelsea beat Aston Villa

Romelu Lukaku of Chelsea scores their side's first goal during the Premier League match between Chelsea and Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge on September 11, 2021 in London, England.

Romelu Lukaku scored his first ever goals at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea beat Aston Villa to maintain their unbeaten start.

Lukaku kissed the club badge as he celebrated his opener in front of Blues fans after beating Villa goalkeeper Jed Steer on his 15th appearance at the stadium overall.

The Belgian's clinical finish through Steer's legs came from a precise pass from Mateo Kovacic inside his own half.

Dean Smith's side created plenty of chances after conceding and managed four shots on target, but could not find a way past Blues goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.

Villa were punished for their wasted chances when Kovacic doubled Chelsea's lead early in the second half with a first-time finish into the bottom corner from Tyrone Mings' weak back pass.


Lukaku sealed the win for Chelsea in injury time with a powerful finish down from the edge of the box.

The victory takes Thomas Tuchel's side up to second - level on points and goal difference with leaders Manchester United - and sees the club reach a significant milestone as they become only the second team in Premier League history to reach 600 wins in the competition (Man Utd have 689).
