Lookman missed a penalty earlier in the season against West Ham United when he tried a panenka and got it horribly wrong.
Stafford-Bloor used some time on the podcast to laud Lookman’s displays.
He said: “I’ve been really impressed by Ademola Lookman this year; I think he’s been really, really good.
“He’s been the player we all knew he probably could be during that period at Everton and the first spell he had at Leipzig as well when he was so impressive; second spell not so great.”
Have you been impressed by Lookman?
TIF Thoughts on Lookman…
The 23-year-old, who is valued at £9m by Transfermarkt, lost his way in Germany after Leipzig turned their loan deal for him into a permanent move, and a return to the Premier League has allowed him to shine.
We think he deserves great credit for showing that fighting spirit to come back after his missed panenka, as that could have destroyed his confidence, but it didn’t.
They could even go ahead of Newcastle on Friday if they beat Leeds United, and to do that, you would think that Lookman would have to be at his best and given the way he is currently playing, we would be surprised if he didn’t keep up that form against Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
