“I’ve watched Man City goal 100 times”

Ademola Lookman has been speaking to FourFourTwo about his debut goal vs Man City and settling in at Everton

Lookman: “I’ve watched the goal back 100 times. When the ball came to me, I was thinking, ‘I’m one-on-one with the keeper, I can actually score.

“If you see my expression, I don’t think that I smiled until after I came off the pitch – that’s how shocked I was. Scoring on my debut, nothing gets better than that.

“My team-mates and coaches gave me a round of applause as I walked into the dressing room and signed my shirt – it was a great moment.

“Romelu [Lukaku] and Yannick [Bolasie] have really helped me to settle in. They have both told me to not be afraid and to keep expressing myself on the pitch – that’s what got me here. I shouldn’t stop doing it just because I’m at a different level now.

“I sat down in the dressing room after the first training session thinking, ‘This is what I want’. Now I’m here, I’ve got to keep working hard.”
