Marco Silva's error with Everton's Ademola Lookman was exposed yesterday

Marco Silva the head coach

Everton forward Ademola Lookman was in highly impressive form at Goodison Park yesterday.

Ademola Lookman’s display for Everton against Bournemouth yesterday has rather exposed Marco Silva’s error of not giving the youngster more of a chance sooner.

Theo Walcott has generally been favoured to Lookman at Goodison Park so far this season, but on yesterday’s display it was hard to know why.


Walcott has struggled for Everton this term, with his performances not the most impressive.

The former Arsenal man has not scored with any frequency, and he has also failed to provide for his Everton teammates.

Lookman, on the other hand, was arguably Everton’s brightest attacking player yesterday.

The England youth international consistently threatened against the Cherries, as Everton picked up a 1-0 victory.

And the question must be asked over why Silva has not been picking Lookman sooner, as he was in such good form for Everton yesterday.
