Roy Keane insists Chelsea could have put seven past Arsenal as Sol Campbell and Graeme Souness lay into Mikel Arteta’s men after their 2-0 defeat on Sunday.

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.

And the performance was roundly criticised by the three Sky Sports pundits, who went on to point out the clear gulf in class between the two London teams.

‘Very comfortable, scored two, could have been seven if they really went for it the second half,’ Keane said on Sky Sports. ‘We saw the quality in the players, confidence, they have a swagger Chelsea, and you can see the shortcomings of Arsenal.

‘There’s no hiding place, Arsenal are well short and it’s going to be a long old season for Arsenal.’

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.’
