Look at how cute he is with his off the ball movement.
First of all, terrible positioning and bad run at the wrong lane.
Second, he's asking for a pass when there's no chance of receiving one and he's in no direct line towards one. Lautaro has to stop, step over the ball, and look for Lukaku to his right and then we have to hope that the 3rd defender doesn't close in on him, which of course he'll do, who are we kidding here?
Third, all of this can be seen by how the loose defender is covering both Lukaku and Lautaro's shot/path in case he surpasses his marker. Lukaku is not only being useless for himself here, he's also causing Lautaro more problems to finish off the chance. Lukaku is simply positioned in a hopeful position that the ball squirms to him somehow either by a loose deflection or by a goalkeeper parry.
Where he should have been? Run wider, towards the 2nd post, attracting a defender. But no, he has to ask for a heeled lobbed curved pass there...
This is just a small sample of how bad his awareness is. He really is... just a poacher.
He shoud just stop running and wait for return pass to his left leg and bang it to the top right corner just like 86 mil player would do .
