A number of Everton fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Ademola Lookman's display during the Toffees' 1-1 draw with Newcastle on Wednesday night, with many criticising the forward's performance on a frustrating night for Marco Silva's men.

Everton dominated possession against the Magpies, but it was the visitors who broke the deadlock through Salomon Rondon. The home side felt aggrieved as Lookman appeared to be fouled before the counter attack began.

 

Richarlison would equalise not long before the break, but the Toffees were unable to find a winner against Rafa Benitez's men, who struggled to land many punches apart from Rondon's well-taken goal.

Lookman was given the chance to make his first Premier League start of the season. Given the excitement the 21-year-old generates, it is a start that plenty of fans have been calling for for a while, but many now appear to be less convinced about his position in the side.

Some have insisted that the £11 million signing (via BBC Sport) deserves more opportunities before he is at all written off, but others have not been as kind in their assessment of his performance.

As shown by Whoscored, the former Charlton Athletic man managed one attempt on goal throughout the game and played just one key pass. He did attempt a number of dribbles, but the fans seemingly want to see a lot more from Lookman after being so keen to see him get his chance in the starting lineup.
