Victory for Inter sees them move four points clear at the top of Serie A and a lot of that is thanks to Lukaku.
The Belgian international produced a sensational cross for Lautaro Martinez to head home his first goal of the game.
Martinez added a second before Lukaku turned scorer to net a third and seal emphatic victory.
Lukaku gets his reward for his outstanding performance! :raised_hands:- Premier Sports :tv: (@PremierSportsTV) February 21, 2021

Lukaku managing to leave Alessio Romagnoli in the dust before assisting Martinez caught the eye, with many still downplaying his technical ability.
He is also the division's top scorer now with 17 goals, ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and recent rival Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Fans have reacted to the 27-year-old's performance and they believe he's in the best form of his career.

Zlatan lost the battle and the war to Lukaku. Love to see it.- Ahead of the Curve (@mediocentr0) February 21, 2021
It's time we dust of Adriano's nickname and crown him. Romelu "The emperor" Lukaku.- Siavoush Fallahi (@SiavoushF) February 21, 2021
United supporters won't want to hear it, but they'd be top with Lukaku in their current XI. Linkup with Bruno would be unplayable.- RG (@registability) February 21, 2021
That's an Adriano type goal ffs, so good. Power, pace, technique, etc. Romelu Lukaku's got it all. pic.twitter.com/YWPJYlfR5p- IG (@CatenaccioIG) February 21, 2021
There can't be many other centre forwards currently playing with ability to pick a cross like Lukaku:fire: https://t.co/UT708fN0Fo- The Furnance Sports (@TheFurnaceSport) February 21, 2021
Journalist Emanuel Roşu offered a translation and stated: "I listened again and again. Can be "Io", which translates as "me", could be "Dio", which translates as God. Obviously addressed to Zlatan either way.
"Zlatan previously said he is the "God" of Milan, so any of the two above would make sense."
