EPL: Lookman scores as Fulham, Sheffield earn first points

1 min read

On-loan forward Ademola Lookman scored on Sunday but it was enough for Fulham to pick up their first win of the season as hosts Sheffield United grabbed a dramatic penalty equaliser with five minutes left to play in a 1-1 stalemate at Bramall Lane.

Lookman’s strike, however, helped the Cottagers secure their first Premier League point on their return to the EPL.

Striker Aleksandar Mitrovic missed a penalty and conceded another as Fulham blew their late lead.

Lookman’s 77th-minute goal helped the visitors make amends for Mitrovic’s missed penalty, but Scott Parker was denied a first Premier League win of the season when Billy Sharp scored an 85th-minute penalty.

It was the 22-year-old Lookman’s first Premier League goal since his debut for Everton on Jan. 15, 2017, against Manchester City.

Fulham and Blades both earned their first points of the season after five matches each, but the former has a forgiving run of fixtures next, while Sheffield will be challenged to find another result out of the next nine available points.
