"Ole should be sacked for letting Lukaku go after he game him his job in the first place with the psg brace," one social media user wrote.
While another wrote: "one good first touch in decades and people are like 'the best first touch in the history of football' ffs" to which someone replied by saying: "He's been doing it all season?????"
Another tweet wrote: "Also it's not a purple patch. There's a reason teams paid 70ms for him. He's Belgium's top scorer."
The Belgium striker is enjoying a prolific debut season in Italy following his £73 million transfer from Manchester United in the summer.
He now has 18 goals to his name across all competitions, including 14 goals in the Serie A.
