Swansea City keep their Premier League survival hopes alive thanks to a narrow 1-0 victory over Everton.
Clement was Carlo Ancelotti's assistant at Real Madrid when the Spanish giants claimed their 10th European Cup in 2014 by beating city rivals Atletico.
From an individual standpoint, it has been a successful season for Lukaku, who is now the Premier League's top goalscorer.
Coming off the back of a hard-fought point away to Manchester United last weekend, the Welsh side then picked up maximum points against Everton in front of their home fans.
After Hull City lost at home to Sunderland on Saturday, Swansea capitalised to climb above them with a tense 1-0 victory over Everton.
'I'm the one in charge and because of the position when I came into this club.
"The players paying for the supporters' tickets came from Leon Britton and I thought it was a brilliant idea". We have played against really good opposition and seven points from three games is a fantastic tally.
With two winnable games left they have to be considered favourites to avoid the drop and they way in which the dealt with the added expectations has to be another positive moving forward.
Clement expects the home crowd to make a difference against West Bromwich Albion if the relegation battle comes down to the final day of the season.
Jermain Defoe has praised the "unbelievable" Sunderland support and says it was vital the already-relegated Black Cats gave them something to cheer.More news: Trade order, campaign rally on Trump's 100th day
"That (the support) helps the players when they are exhausted and the tanks are running on empty".
After Hull's shock 2-0 home defeat to already-relegated Sunderland, Swansea maintained their recent run of form.
"The message was we have an opportunity, don't waste it".
The hosts started brightly as they were clearly buoyed by Hull's loss to Sunderland. "One, because it helped us, and with our win we have gone out of the relegation zone".
Manchester City can still finish in second, but at this stage in the season, will happily take a Champions League place in third.
Everton's failure to score in south Wales saw them draw a blank in a third successive league match for the first time in 11 years.
Not only will manager Paul Clement be happy with the result, today was probably the best Swansea have defended all season.
Ayew is still looking for his first Swansea goal, but looks a much better player in a two-man strike-force with Llorente as opposed to on his own or out wide, where he featured before the change of shape to a diamond.
"But our confidence is up and if we continue in this way I think we will stay in the league".
