Lookman helps Everton teens lead way

17 Jan 2017
Everton v Man City

Nineteen-year-old became club's 17th teenager to score in Premier League, drawing level with Arsenal

Ademola Lookman’s debut goal means Everton have the joint-highest number of teenage goalscorers in Premier League history.

Fifteen minutes after 18-year-old Tom Davies chipped in his first top-flight goal, Lookman netted Everton’s fourth in Sunday’s 4-0 victory over Manchester City, just 10 days after sealing his transfer from Charlton Athletic.

The 19-year-old’s strike means Everton are level with Arsenal on 17 teenage goalscorers, one clear of nearest challengers Manchester United.

Lookman and Davies have some way to go to catch the leading scorer of teenage goals in the Premier League, Michael Owen. 

The striker netted 40 times before the age of 20 at Liverpool, more than double that of all but two other players in the competition's history.
