 'He's Got Very Good Skill' - Ian Wright Impressed By Fulham's Most Dangerous Player, Lookman Vs Palace
RB Leipzig loanee Ademola Lookman made his home debut for Fulham as they suffered a 2-1 loss at the hands of Crystal Palace in a Premier League match at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon, allnigeriasoccer.com reports.
 
Against the run of play, the Eagles took the lead, Jairo Riedewald with the finish after a tremendous assist by Wilfried Zaha, then the Ivorian added a second at minute 64.

Deep into stoppage time, Tom Cairney halved the deficit with a tremendous strike but the goal didn't matter.

Fulham played some good stuff in the first half with Lookman their most dangerous player and the winger hit the woodwork twice.

The confidence of the Super Eagles hopeful appears to be back after tough times with RB Leipzig, where he found playing opportunities difficult to come by.

Aboubakar Kamara was sent off two minutes from time after a bad tackle on fellow second half substitute Eberechi Eze, the referee deeming it worthy of a red card after visiting the review area.

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright was delighted with the performance of Lookman who was the only bright spark for the Cottagers.

Speaking on Premier League Productions at half-time, Wright stated : "We saw him (Lookman) against Sheffield United, he's somebody that is constantly looking to get forward, he's got very good skill.

"I'd like to see Mitrovic stay in the center and be the focal point, I say it all the time when I watch Fulham play.

"You'd see it coming to Lookman here and he just can't get on the end of it, I'd like to see Mitrovic on the other side of Scott Dann...."

Scott Parker's Fulham have a solitary point to their name after six matches played in the English Premier League.

Ola Aina and Tosin Adarabioyo also made their home debuts for Fulham and the two defenders lasted the distance.
