The defending European champions secured three parts with a scruffy win at Stamford Bridge.

And Lukaku scored his fourth function in 4 video video video games all by all competitions for the Blues this season.

Former England and Chelsea midfielder Cole has backed Lukaku to complete top scorer all through the rivals this time interval – despite him not being at his finest on Tuesday.

Speaking on Lukaku’s return to Chelsea, Cole talked about: “It’s a match made in heaven for both sides.

“He’s actually put the general bundle deal collectively.

“I’m going to throw this within the market, I actually really feel he’ll be top scorer all through 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.”

The prize was fastidiously fastidiously dominated by Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

But lately, Robert Lewandowski, Neymar and Erling Haaland have been capable of beat the 2 legendary forwards to the top spot.

And it seems to be like Lewandowski and Ronaldo will pose the most important hazard to Lukaku’s bid to complete top scorer.

Both Lewandowski and Ronaldo opened their Champions League accounts for the season, scoring in yesterday’s batch of fixtures.

Bayern Munich rolled a Messi-less Barcelona over on the Nou Camp 3-0 with Lewandowski scoring a brace.

And Manchester United fell to a shock 2-1 defeat in Bern – despite Ronaldo getting on the scoresheet – dropping to Young Boys 2-1 all through the final minute of added time.
