This year i decided to play a formation with two strikers and currently i am pairing him up with Aguero. His strength, height and headers is what i enjoyed most with this player. His first touch lets him down sometimes but he can make it up to you with the rest of his abilities.
I used Lukaku in the WL. He scores more than 1 goal/game. Only player that really surprised me. I was really doubtful on him before.
PACE: 8 Not a great acceleration but he is impressive in sprint speed. Defenders can't reach him for his phisicality
SHOOTING: 9 Great from inside/outside the box, also whit his right foot.
PASSING: 8 he can pass the ball with good quality (both short and long pass)
DRIBBLING: 7 In my opinion his weak point, not able to overcome the defenders with his agility. You can easily overcome defenders if he was launched by a teammate.
DEFENDING: 6 Due to his resistance he run across the defenders for all the game. Helping the midfielders to recover the ball.
PHISICALITY: 10 Impressive. You can't touch him. This feature help Pace, Shooting and Dribbling, too.
FINAL SCORE : 8,5/10
PACE (sprint speed)
I wasn't sure who to get for my premier league team and I tried Lukaku. I had low expectations as I thought he couldn't dribble, all I had to do was set him as a target man and he scores every game. For me he has scored 18 goals in 12 games in rivals and he is the perfect all round striker as he is strong, fast and is good at shooting. His ling shots are surprisingly good as they somehow go in the bottom corners most of the time.
Strength Shooting Height Speed
Dribbling but it isn't a huge issue
As my title suggest, what you see is exactly what you get.
Overall, very good player when used correctly. You can guarantee that he will be in the right place at the right time, be able to score with his left foot with relative ease, win headers a lot and hold up the ball very well. If those features suit your play style, I couldn't recommend a better player.
Pace: Fast enough for this game, takes a while to get there but he does reach some pretty good speeds - Long balls from fullbacks up towards him work very well as they allow him to reach max speed and thanks to his positioning, strength and aerial ability, he wins most long balls that you send his way.
Shooting: His positioning is great and has a very powerful strike that is very accurate from close range.
Passing: His passing felt very good, he holds up the ball with ease and can send passes through to his fellow attackers with ease and with good accuracy.
Physical: Very strong and can last a full 90 minutes quite easily - a mixture of his M/M work-rates and 84 stamina helps him last all game.
Dribbling: He feels extremely clunky. He can run straight through players, but don't expect him to weave in and out.
Defending: Yes, I know he's a striker, however, with many other strong strikers I've used, when I go defensive they seem to come back and put in a decent shift. I expected the same from Lukaku due to his physical presence, but he kind of just lingers around doing nothing.
Weak foot: 4* seems decent but it does not feel like it, feels more like a 2/3 star. I'm pretty sure he's yet to score with his right foot.
I play this year in a formation with two strikers and currently i am pairing him up with Neymar.
Lukaku is such a beast in-game and is definitely the meta-striker from the PL you are looking for!
