Fulham star Ademola Lookman said he is happy for Josh Maja after he scored a brace in their 2-0 win over Everton in Sunday's Premier League game.

With both teams struggling to find the back of the net at Goodison Park, Ola Aina connected with Maja to break the deadlock three minutes into the second-half.

A few minutes later, Maja – who is on loan from Ligue 1 club Bordeaux – doubled Fulham’s lead with his strike in the 65th minute.

In his reaction, Lookman stated that he is not surprised by the Nigeria star’s goals and he wants the Cottagers to keep scoring as they aim to beat the Premier League drop.

They are 18th in the league table with 18 points from 23 matches.

"It was a well-deserved three points. We dominated large parts of the game and created lots of chances,” Lookman told BBC Sport.

"I'm happy for Josh Maja as well. Everyone knows he can score goals. We need to score goals.

"I've said before if we stick together and put the ball in the back of the net, we'll win games. We showed that today.

"We kept believing. At half-time, we said we'll do the exact same thing in the second half and we scored twice.

"Our defence kept it strong towards the end of the game and we saw it out.

"It gives the team a boost of confidence and we'll take that into the next game."
