Player to watch – Ademola Lookman

26 year old forward Ademola Lookman is having a good campaign for Atalanta with eight goals and six assists in Serie A. He has also been on target in both the Europa League and Coppa Italia with his team maintaining a challenge on three fronts as we head towards May.

Lookman a bigger threat after the break

The London-born striker has tended to do most of his damage in the Second Half of matches this season. 70% of his goals in all competitions have come after the interval, continuing a trend from last term when eight of his 13 Serie A goals came after the break.
