The Belgian completed his return to Stamford Bridge last week after departing Inter Milan in a deal reportedly worth £97.5 million (R2 billion).

After missing the Blues' 3-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday, Lukaku is set to make his second debut for the club this weekend.

"I'm ready so it's just about getting into the team and trying to prove myself to the coaches that if I'm needed, I can play," Lukaku told Chelsea's official website.

"We all have to compete throughout the week to earn our starting spot. For me, it's going to be a new fight but we're all fighting for one cause – to make sure that Chelsea win.

"I'll make sure that in training I give 100% every day and make sure that I'm ready for each game.

"I'm happy the first one is a big game away at Arsenal so hopefully we can prepare ourselves well and get a good result."
