The Belgian forward has hit something of a purple patch after a difficult spell of form, with his strike against Chelsea on Sunday taking him to an impressive five goals in his last seven matches, and 27 in all competitions for club and country this season.

The former Everton man generally looked like a player transformed at Old Trafford at the weekend, and caught the eye with a lung-bursting dash in the 92nd minute.
That show of speed seems to have Lukaku thinking his acceleration figures need to be looked at by EA Sports – but not quite everybody agrees:
I want an upgrade on my acceleration on fifa… the pace is good but acceleration 70 something ??♂️..I think you guys saw my sprint at the end of the last game right.. are you guys going to something about it @EASPORTSFIFA ? ??♂️ https://t.co/r4eWGDkYhj

Don't ask them to start watching you or your shooting is getting a massive downgrade

To be fair, Rom, what did you think was really going to happen, eh?
Do you think Lukaku deserves a noticeable upgrade to his virtual avatar?
