I've played quite a few games in draft and used a variety of top strikers in the game. Out of all the strikers I've used, Lukaku is up there with the best. It may take you a while to get used to playing with this card but if done correctly, he's the type of player that can single-handedly win you games. He's got decent dribbling and sprint speed, so he's like a train once he get's going. If he get's past the last defender, it's basically game over for your opponent.
His finesse shots are decent but you're more likely to score with his high shot power. Although his long shot stats are mediocre, his shooting ability outside of the 18 can often feel broken.
A worrisome card to play against.
He can play as a lone striker in a 4-2-3-1 but I'd highly recommend that you pair him with a pacey forward or two pacey wingers.
Lack of informs has been a disappointment so far this season but he's bound to pick up more as the season progresses.
