The Belgian powers forward and takes the ball down with a lovely touch before beating two men and providing a ball acrosst the box for his strike partner.
Fans on Twitter reacted to the 26-year-old's technique and about how he seems to be settling under Antonio Conte.

Lukaku deserves half of the credits for that goal. Vision, FIRST TOUCH, accuracy, unselfishness, that goal has it all.

It's a far cry from the striker we saw in his last few months at Manchester United who looked lethargic.
Lukaku thought he had doubled Inter's lead ten minutes before half-time.
But VAR ruled his goal out and then pulled the play back for a Slavia penalty.
Stefan de Vrij was judged to have fouled a Slavia attacker.
Some great VAR banter as Inter Milan score a goal, but it is cancelled out for a Slavia Prague penalty at the other end. Was 0-2, now 1-1.

Tomas Soucek stepped up to level the score.
A draw for Inter tonight would mean they need to defeat Barcelona at the San Siro to have any hopes of qualification.
The La Liga champions are currently leading 2-0 against Borussia Dortmund in Group F's other game.
Lionel Messi has scored and assisted on his 700th career game.
