Former England midfielder, Joe Cole, has said that in Romelu Lukaku, Chelsea presently have a “executioner” in their crew who will polish off chances.
Lukaku got the main objective as the Blues started their Champions League crusade with a tight 1-0 triumph over Zenit St Petersburg on Tuesday.
It was his fourth objective in four matches since getting back to Stamford Bridge in a £98million bargain from Inter Milan.
Cole conceded that Lukaku was not at his best against Zenit, but rather said his clinical nature makes him the ideal man to lead the line under Thomas Tuchel.
“I’m going to toss this out there, I think he’ll be top scorer in the Champions League this season.
“Lukaku didn’t have one of his better games, he was somewhat messy however he’s a finisher now, an executioner. When that ball was conveyed there was simply going to be one champ, he’s an incredible finisher,” Cole said on BT Sport.
