What am I doing wrong with Lukaku?

I’ve been using Lacazette and Giroud up front in a 5-2-1-2 with a maestro card on Giroud. They were unbelievably good together with Giroud getting a lot of assists and headed goals.

Upgraded Giroud to Lukaku and I just can’t seem to do anything right with him. I know people rave about him but he can’t seem to win a single header, gets shoved off the ball and his shooting and passing is awful.

Anyone had any similar experiences with him or know how to get the best out of him?

    Don’t play for his heading and don’t try to abuse his strength. That’s not how he works, play as he was a normal striker and his strength and heading will show in the right occasions. Not in every occasion. Be careful with his first touch and don’t dribble more than necessary with him. He’s a beast if used correctly.

    Totally agree
    He’s like a wardrobe on rollerkates, and occasionally the door swings open and sends one top corner

    2-3 touches at most and he’ll lose it so play quick and try to get it into his left foot ASAP and you’ll be ok

    His shooting is absolutely fantastic he scores in pretty much every game for me.

    Will be hard to drop him from my squad this year.

    I love him tbh. Getting hattricks constantly

    Play him as a 1 instead of a 2 up top. You dont want him using link up play and passing/moving in a two.

    He should be finishing and bullying. His finishing is incredible
