That was in stark contrast to the armband favourites in Gameweek 29.
Only one of the top 10 most-selected captains, Harry Kane (£12.4m), found the net.
Owned by only 4.3 per cent, Lukaku was given the captaincy by a mere 77,281 managers.
His return to form comes at a time where many of the most popular strikers in FPL are struggling for a cutting edge.
The missed penalty by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.9m) in the north London derby has triggered huge sales.
Over 53,000 managers have transferred out the Arsenal striker, who has started only one of their last four Gameweeks.
Only 18,000 or so managers have turned to Lukaku for Gameweek 30, perhaps because of Man Utd's upcoming schedule.
They are without a fixture in Gameweeks 31 and 33.
But with two matches in both Gameweeks 32 and 35, the Belgian can prove the perfect differential for those looking to make up ground in mini-leagues.
