- Leicester City were defeated 2-1 by Newcastle at St. James' Park on Sunday
- Ademola Lookman found the net for City before a brace from Bruno Guimarães for the Magpies
- The 24-year-old forward says all focus has to be on restoring Leicester's positive momentum quickly

The on-loan forward applied the finish to a well-worked corner routine in the 19th minute to put the Foxes ahead at St. James' Park, but a double from Bruno Guimarães – including a winner deep into added time – put a halt to City's five-game unbeaten run in all competitions. 

Following that last-gasp defeat in the North East, Lookman spoke to LCFC TV, outlining the importance of a speedy response from Leicester. The games keep on coming for Brendan Rodgers' men and they will be at Goodison Park on Wednesday to tackle Everton in the Premier League (7:45pm BST kick-off).

A Sucker Punch, Says Lookman

Goalscorer Ademola Lookman reflected on the Foxes' narrow reverse against Newcastle United on LCFC TV.

"It was definitely a sucker punch," Lookman said. "The least we should come away with from that game is a draw. Obviously, they go on the counter and they score, so it’s a disappointing result. The game’s over now so we’ll just look forward to Wednesday and come back from that and hopefully get the win there.

"I think we created good chances today. It’s just a shame we couldn’t work it better in those moments and kill the game. It’s just disappointing.

"[The goal] was well-worked. We worked on it yesterday and it came off for us today. I’d have been more pleased with a better result. For me, winning is the most important, so we’ll look to put this game behind us and put it right on Wednesday."

Lookman Strikes In Newcastle Reverse

Ademola Lookman was on target at St. James' Park in Leicester City's 2-1 defeat to Newcastle United.

Lookman believes Leicester failed to capitalise on the momentum they had created in the early stages of the second period. Lessons will be learned, he says.

"For the equaliser, I’m not sure what happened," the 24-year-old continued. "I think in the second half we came out stronger. We attacked them and created chances but it’s just a shame we didn’t make anything out of it.

"Obviously, we lost today and it’s something we should learn from. We want to create that winning mentality and keep that winning feeling going, but today it didn’t happen for us."
