Ralph Hasenhüttl handed England Under-21 international Ademola Lookman his first Bundesliga start in RB Leipzig's 2-1 defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt on Monday.

It was the 20-year-old winger's third appearance in a Leipzig shirt since his deadline day loan move from English Premier League club Everton, following substitute outings against Borussia Mönchengladbach - when he scored ten minutes into his debut - and Augsburg.

"I like it here, it's good football," he said afterwards. "Obviously I got my first start today and it wasn't the perfect start that I wanted but I just need to keep working hard."

Lookman is the fourth young Englishman to start a Bundesliga game this season, after Gladbach's Reece Oxford (19), Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho (17) and Wolfsburg's Kaylen Hinds (20).
