Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku was named UEFA Player of the Match following his performance in Chelsea’s 1-0 victory over Zenit on Tuesday night.

The 28 year old Belgium international scored the only goal of the game in the 69th minute, heading home a brilliant cross from Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

Lukaku’s goal against Zenit is his fourth already for Chelsea in just four matches, and there are more in his locker.

After the game, Lukaku hailed Chelsea skipper Cesar Azpilicueta for his awesome cross for the goal, and he admitted that he shares the same idea with the Chelsea skipper.

“I’m really happy with the win,” said Lukaku. “Today was a better performance than the weekend. We have to keep growing.

“Me and Cesar [Azpilicueta] agree on certain type of movements on the pitch. I had to get my timing right but it was a beautiful ball by him. We knew it would be tough game but we controlled it really well.”
