Everton Defender, Williams: Lookman Is Our Secret Weapon

Everton Defender, Williams: Lookman Is Our Secret Weapon

 

Everton defender Ashley Williams says Nigerian forward, Ademola Lookman, is his team's secret weapon for a strong finish to the season.

Everton are currently seventh in the league table on 41 points and nine points off a top four place with 13 games remaining this season.

 

Lookman, 19, who joined Everton from League One outfit Charlton Athletic in January, made an immediate impact on his debut when scoring The Toffees' fourth goal against Manchester City just minutes after coming on as a substitute. 

 

Williams believes Lookman’s relative obscurity so far will further serve Everton well until the end of the season, with the youngster able to bring an unpredictability to the Blues’ attacking play. 

 

“Ademola has really good potential but he is also ready to play in the first team already,” Williams who is captain of the Welsh national team told Everton's official website. 

 

“He has a lot to learn, everyone does at that age, but he has made an impact already and given us something different that we didn’t have. 

 

“He is a bit of a wild card. Teams don’t know him so well. He is a nice lad as well and has got his head down, worked hard every day and is listening.”
