'Needs to start' - These Everton fans want to see Silva select Lookman
Everton winger Ademola Lookman came off the bench against Manchester City yesterday and produced a lively cameo.
Lookman could not inspire Everton to avoid defeat but he looked promising with his pace, skill and direct approach from the wing.
The 21-year-old has mainly been a substitute this season but some Everton fans are now calling for him to start.
With Theo Walcott dipping in and out of form, Lookman will surely be eyeing a starting spot on one of the wings.
The England under-21 international, who joined Everton from Charlton Athletic, has played in 11 Premier League games this season.
But only one of those games was a start and the rest have been substitute cameos.
Lookman is considered to be one of England’s most promising young players but he needs a bit more game time to take his career to the next level.
Below are a selection of tweets from Everton fans responding to Lookman’s performance and calling for him to be included in the starting line-up for next weekend’s home game against Tottenham Hotspur.
Id like to see something like this in the future if gueye is still unavailable #EFC

Frustrating. Went there expecting nothing, sat back, conceded poor goals, and could still have scored three. Poor set-up by Silva. Mina awful. Gylfi isn’t a midfielder. Lookman must start. #efc

thoughts on today – Surprised at tactics to go 3 at the back
First time we have been outclassed this season
Again missed chances
Lookman good again from bench id like to see him given longer run than one game to prove himself before getting dropped #EFC

My thoughts from today. 1 Lookman needs to start. 2. We need a top quality striker. 3. We need to be ruthless because we had 3 very easy chances to score. 4. We need time. I can see us being a top team. #Everton #Lookman #efc #nsno

Think Marco got the tactics wrong today. Holding midfielder needed against top teams – that’s why we’ve done ok against the others this season. Lookman has to play from now on. Also wouldn’t mind seeing Gomes and Davies in middle of the park against lesser teams #EFC
