Ademola Lookman can’t hide his disappointment after Fulham failed to take all three points in Sunday’s Premier League clash against Sheffield United.
The forward marked his full Fulham debut with a stunning solo goal against Sheffield United, but a late penalty meant we had to settle for a draw at Bramall Lane.
“It’s disappointing really,” Lookman told the club’s website.
“I thought we should have got three points from the game, but it’s done now, so onto the next one.
“We all believe we can do great things this season. Obviously we’re a new group so we’re still gelling together, but that will come.
“We expect good things will come in the near future.”
The Blades certainly had the better chances in the first half, but Scott Parker rallied his troops at the break, and they went on to dominate the second 45.
“The Gaffer wanted us to play a lot quicker, especially when we got into the opposition half, to try and penetrate a lot more,” Lookman explained.
“That’s what we tried to do, and it worked for us. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to get us the three points.
“I definitely feel like in the second half we controlled the game a lot more, created a lot more chances and should have scored more than one.
“That’s the important thing, though, that we’re creating chances.”
Lookman’s opener demonstrated what he’s all about, with a combination of skill and determination getting him into the box, before lashing home an unstoppable shot which left the otherwise unbeatable Aaron Ramsdale with no chance.
But with it not turning out to be the winner, Lookman was reluctant to wax lyrical about his strike: “I can score those goals. I can score all different types of goals, but it’s just disappointing that we didn’t get the three points.”Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
