Chelsea legend Joe Cole has hailed Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku as a ‘killer’ in front of goal after he scored in Chelsea’s 1-0 victory over Zenit on Tuesday night.

The Belgian forward headed home Cesar Azpilicueta’s deep cross on 68 minutes, his fourth in four games for Chelsea.

“It’s a match made in heaven for both sides,” Cole told BT Sport, speaking about Lukaku’s recent move to Chelsea. “He’s really put the full package together.

“I’m going to throw this out there, I think he’ll be top scorer in the Champions League this season.

“Lukaku didn’t even have one of his better games, he was a little bit scruffy but he’s a finisher now, a killer. Once that ball was delivered there was only going to be one winner, he’s a great finisher.”
