It’s worth noting that whilst Lukaku has been consistent, he hasn’t necessarily been explosive.

Added to that, he has been flagged on the FPL site with an injury. That does explain his lacklustre performance against Palace! Ben Dinnery is the go to injury expert on Twitter, you should also check out his website www.premierinjuries.com
Will not travel with the group to #BIH. Instead, Lukaku will continue to receive treatment at the Belgian Football Center. #MUFC #BEL https://t.co/KQ0VFJCylQ

Some managers have been boasting about their success having not owned Lukaku!
Haven't owned Lukaku for the last 3 weeks. Up to 23k. It just depends what you do with the money
