Lookman scores as Fulham, Sheffield earn first points



On-loan forward Ademola Lookman scored on Sunday and 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.
