Jamie Redknapp has revealed why Romelu Lukaku is the perfect striker for Chelsea.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “It’s in Chelsea’s DNA to have a striker who can hold the ball up and bring people into play.
“It doesn’t matter who the manager has been, every manager has liked to have that focal point.
“They’ve had it with Drogba, they’ve had it with Costa and now they’ve got it with Lukaku. All of their successes have been with an out-and-out number nine like that.
“They’ve got so many good players around him and, because they’ve won the Champions League last year, that will give them the belief that they can now win the Premier League.
“They will look at Lukaku as the missing piece in the jigsaw.”
