Fulham striker Ademola Lookman on facing his former team Everton

Fulham striker Ademola Lookman is aware of the challenge ahead of them when the Cottagers meet with Everton but firmly believes the team can produce a positive result.

Lookman who made 50 appearances during his spell at Everton spoke fondly of his former team but affirmed that he is ready to go above and beyond for his current team.

“It was a good time,” Lookman told the club's official website. “I was there two-and-a-half years and I grew a lot in those years.

“It’s a great club, and I’m looking forward to playing against them this weekend. I look forward to every game, though, take each one as it comes, and just embrace the challenge.

“I’m still in touch with a few players. Seamus Coleman, I spoke to recently, DCL [Dominic Calvert-Lewin] and Tom Davies I know really well as we spent a lot of time together.

“There’s a lot of talent in their squad, they’re all great players, so we’re going to have to match them on Sunday. We’ll be going for the win.

“Our squad’s in a good way and I think if we keep working in this way, keep working hard every single day, then we’ll get the results that we need.”

The Cottagers will look to secure crucial three points and bounce back from the dismal result against West Ham United.

Lookman was left shattered when he missed the penalty in the dying minutes of the game but he has come out to the thank the fans and his teammates who are still backing him.

“The fans backed me 100 per cent, and I want to tell them of my appreciation and love for all of the great messages I received,” he said.

“I was devastated after the game, but now it’s one of those things that I’ve got to learn from. That’s what I’m going to do, and I’m going to embrace the challenges ahead.

“I’ve used it as motivation, and now I’m just looking ahead to the next challenge.”
