Romelu Lukaku scored the only goal of the game as the Blues beat Russian side Zenit St Petersburg 1-0 on Tuesday night.

UEFA Technical Observer Tim Cahill gave his verdict on Lukaku’s performance against the Russian side.

Cahill said: “A great headed goal. The way he pushed back the defence to create space for the midfielders in the ten position was fantastic.”

Meanwhile, Lukaku was named UEFA Player of the Match after his goal helped secure a victory for the Blues against Zenit.
