Premier League's all-time leading scorer names Chelsea striker in his Matchweek 2 best XI

Alan Shearer says the goalscoring return of Chelsea's new signing Romelu Lukaku was as predictable as it was impressive.

The striker took just 15 minutes to find the net on his second debut for the Blues, and his flying start came as no surprise to the Premier League's all-time top goalscorer and Hall of Fame inductee.

"It was always going to happen," says Shearer, who has also named Lukaku's club-mate Reece James in his Matchweek 2 Team of the Week. "He dominated Arsenal from start to finish."
