# Romelu Lukaku - 35% ownership
Manchester United striker and Belgian talisman, Romelu Lukaku has scored eight goals and made four assists in the Premier League, this season. With a 35% ownership rate on FPL, United's frontman is heavily relied upon by a massive number of users.
With United hosting rivals Manchester City in a crucial game at the weekend and then Bournemouth soon after, before away tests to WBA and Leicester, Lukaku could bag a few points in the next few matches.
The Belgian will need to deliver solid performances in the league and end his three-game goal drought in the league. With the club, 8 points off City at the top of the table, a big contribution from the Belgian in the coming weeks, could help build back confidence for the player and his club.
A tiny slump in form was put away with a goal in midweek, securing United top spot in Group A of the Champions League. Users with Lukaku in their teams can be hopeful for points during the weekend and in the coming weeks.
