Really believe he’s better off the bench than starting

Selfish player and not hitting the target.

Slow and predictable? He's still the only player we've got who gets the ball out wide and create himself half a yard with his body movement. At least he looks like making stuff happen when he's got the ball, he's not meant to be Messi ffs.

Give it up. Never a post about someone who has played well. Always a post slagging of a player.

One of his worst games so far. Also Areola had a bad night.

Burnley defended well against him, gave him very little time & space.

Well, he didn't show much of that tonight - why mention Messi ffs

Has he become the scape goat now then?
Was RLC before him, so its about time.

Hes not been the same since the penalty miss. Still wouldnt bench him given were low on other options, played well enough against Everton without setting the world alight....is trying too hard though, needs to keep it simple

By comparison I thought Cav had a decent cameo, but a few balls in the box. Lookman looks to be quite low on confidence at the moment and is taking too many touches, not releasing it or putting it into the area early enough.

lookman didnt have his best game ,but he wasnt poor and doesnt deserve a slagging.Agree cavaleiro made a difference as did Anguissa.

Not his best game. Think he could use a bit of a rest, but don't see that happening without Parker promoting one of our young wingers to the first team with Mitro out.

I think Lookman deserves his starting spot for what he brings to the team, but it seems like he rarely has his shooting boots on. He's always missing high or wide, never testing the keeper. His dribbling boots seem to always to be on.

He was poor and has been poor for a while, looks like he has lost all confidence.

He has been saved from being slated due to RLC being the scapegoat.

Bad night but he’s probably been our best attacking player this season so some of the comments here are pretty ridiculous.

He was shockingly awful tonight and it cost us 3 points. Cavaleiro needs to be starting... he may have some annoying qualities but he is a danger man and when you are as toothless as we are... dangerous players need to be on the pitch.
