Bolasie, Niasse defend ex-Everton pal Lookman after Fulham pen flop

Everton pair Yannick Bolasie and Oumar Niasse have sent messages of support to former Blue Ademola Lookman after his last-minute penalty miss for Fulham at West Ham United on Saturday evening.

At 1-0 down, Lookman blew Fulham's chance of point by fluffing a Panenka-style spotkick.

But he received support from Bolasie and Niasse in the aftermath.

"Top, top player," Bolasie wrote on Instagram. "Sometimes we learn the hard way."

Former Everton striker Niasse, a free agent following his summer release, added: "Just a lesson and you move on."
