Stats are against Lukaku ending his league-goal drought

City great Aguero loves his outings against Arsenal

Romelu Lukaku endured a frustrating October in the Premier League
1 of 1

All eyes will be on Romelu Lukaku on his return to Chelsea as the Manchester United striker looks for his first goal at Stamford Bridge.

Lukaku, who was strongly linked with the Blues this summer before heading to Manchester United, has played five times at the Bridge without success and is on a six-match goal drought.

The Belgian is 8-5 to snap the poor run but he does not have a great record, averaging a goal every 314 minutes against his former club.

After Lukaku failed to score a Premier League goal in October, bet365 rate him 6-1 for a bleak November, although after the trip to Chelsea there are easier pickings on the horizon against Newcastle (home), Brighton (home) and Watford (away).

Chelsea versus United is the second part of a fantastic Super Sunday which begins with Arsenal's trip to Manchester City.

Sergio Aguero, fresh from becoming the greatest goalscorer in City's history against Napoli on Wednesday, usually enjoys tackling Arsenal, breaking the deadlock on five occasions.

Aguero is rocking an MPG of 78 in this season's Premier League and the Argentinian has become a firm favourite for first goalscorer punters with four openers - the same number as Golden Boot favourite Harry Kane.
