Cole has is relishing the battle between Virgil van Dijk and Romelu Lukaku this weekend.

The pair will go head-to-head at Anfield on Saturday when Thomas Tuhel's side take on the Reds.

Cole is expecting a physical battle between the pair and has backed Chelsea to narrowly secure a win.

"It will be interesting to see how Lukaku goes up against him this weekend. He has the power and the pace but I don't think he has the gamesmanship that Drogba had. Didier knew when to hold your shirt, knew when to back into you, he was a bit of a master of the dark arts in a way," he told Coral.

"It is harder to get away with that now but Lukaku does need to try and get as physical as he can throughout the game in order to get the better of him.

"If I had to stick my neck out, I think Chelsea will win a tight game 2-1 with Romelu Lukaku getting the first goal."
