The 27-year-old Belgian striker was in fine form on Sunday as he scored a first-half brace in Inter Milan's 3-1 victory over Lazio at the San Siro.
But Lukaku, who was signed from Manchester United for £74m in 2019, truly stole the limelight during Inter's third in the second half.
Marcelo Brozovic cleared the ball into the path of Lukaku, who launched Inter's counterattack down the right-hand side of the pitch.
Marco Parolo attempted to stop Lukaku, but the Lazio midfielder didn't stand a chance as the former United star outmuscled him.
Lukaku reached the Lazio box and rolled the ball into the path of Inter teammate Lautaro Martinez, who tapped the ball into the back of the empty net.
Inter's 3-1 win moved Antonio Conte's men top of the table by one point ahead of fierce rivals AC Milan.
Conte's side will now face AC Milan on Sunday at the San Siro in a crucial match in the race for the Serie A title.
Speaking after the match, Conte praised his Inter side for their performance and for their "ambition to want to fight for important goals."
The 51-year-old Italian explained: "Surely this is a result that must bring enthusiasm because we know the work we are doing, what we have done and what we will do.
"We have the ambition to want to fight for important goals also because I think that those who are coaches and play for a team like Inter, with their history, the minimum ambition to have is to aim for the maximum goal.
"Sometimes it is successful, sometimes not, but we have been doing this work since last year with the aim of making our fans proud on the pitch."
