Everton vs Leicester: Lookman wants better response against the Toffees


Super Eagles attacker, Ademola Lookman believes Leicester failed to build on the momentum they had created in the early stages of the second period of their last gasp loss to Newcastle United at St James’ Park last weekend.

Lookman told the club’s official website that the Foxes must learn from that painful experience as they face Everton tonight at the Goodison Park in another league tie.

“For the equaliser, I’m not sure what happened,” the 24-year-old said. “I think in the second half we came out stronger. We attacked them and created chances but it’s just a shame we didn’t make anything out of it.

“Obviously, we lost today (against Newcastle United) and it’s something we should learn from. We want to create that winning mentality and keep that winning feeling going, but today it didn’t happen for us.”

“It was definitely a sucker punch,” Lookman said. “The least we should come away with from that game is a draw. Obviously, they go on the counter and they score, so it’s a disappointing result. The game’s over now so we’ll just look forward to Wednesday and come back from that and hopefully get the win there.

“I think we created good chances today. It’s just a shame we couldn’t work it better in those moments and kill the game. It’s just disappointing.

“[The goal] was well-worked. We worked on it yesterday and it came off for us today. I’d have been more pleased with a better result. For me, winning is the most important, so we’ll look to put this game behind us and put it right on Wednesday.”

The RB Leipzig on loan striker has scored eight goals and created five assists from 35 games in all competitions including six goals in the EPL.
