Liverpool midfielder Cole: Carroll can match exploits of Chelsea star Drogba

Joe Cole has likened Liverpool's £35 million man Andy Carroll to former Chelsea teammate Didier Drogba.

Already in his two short substitute appearances he has displayed huge promise and, having seen him at close quarters, Cole sees similarities with Drogba.

"He is only a young lad but he reminds me of a young Didier Drogba," said the midfielder.

"I have played with both of them and I think he has all the attributes to become that type of centre-forward."
