Everton winger Ademola Lookman must use the form of the club’s other attacking players to help kick-start his own season.
The starlet, who was loaned out to RB Leipzig last season by Sam Allardyce, is yet to make a Premier League start this term, and has made just three cameo appearances totalling 54 minutes of action.
Lookman is currently behind Theo Walcott and Bernard in the Goodison Park pecking order, and is having to bide his time under Marco Silva.
He did make an impact against Crystal Palace at the weekend, delivering an assist for Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s late opener in the 2-0 victory.
He was only handed eight minutes by Silva, but looked as though he was ready to prove himself.
Everton attackers can prompt improvement in Lookman
Silva’s side, especially the attackers, are starting to gel.
Richarlison, Theo Walcott, Bernard and Cenk Tosun are all in decent form at the moment, with Calvert-Lewin also scoring his first goal of the season against Palace.
This could be the motivation Lookman needs to take his chance when Silva gives him one.
Essentially, at the moment, he and Oumar Niasse are the only Everton forwards who aren’t in any kind of form.
The emergence of Bernard is a blow for Lookman, with Walcott having already established some good early season form.
He must now work hard in training and try and make the most of the game time he is given.
He is such a talented young player, but must show the necessary desire to accompany that talent.
