Mikel Arteta Hits Back At Romelu Lukaku After Arsenal Completes New Signing

Mikel Arteta has responded to Romelu Lukaku’s claim of being happy his first game will be against Arsenal

The rivalry between Chelsea and Arsenal clearly isn’t yet off Lukaku’s mind despite having tripped across the borders over the years.

Lukaku on his return after spending two season in the Serie A shared he is happy to be facing Arsenal on his first game after reuniting with the Blues.

Chelsea adding Lukaku to their attacking options only creates more problem for Mikel Arteta’s and his men after they started off the season with a loss.

Having met Chelsea this month during the pre-season games, Arsenal lost 2-1 but are hopeful they can bounce back after completing a permanent deal for Martin Odegaard.

The Norwegian is considered an important part of Mikel Arteta’s squad as this warranted for their strong push until they landed him from Real Madrid following his season long loan last season.

Speaking ahead of the match on Sunday, Arteta said of Lukaku; “I don’t know if he’s going to play! I have a plan to try to stop what Chelsea do & the plan to do what we have to do to win the game.

Adding on their latest signing and new number 8, Arteta continued; “He made us better. We needed more options, alternatives, creativity & players that can be models in this football club.
