Koleosho subs on in the 69th, trailing 1-0 in a cup match.
Playing left mid in a 5-4-1.
Koleosho truly anonymous so far.
May have switched to a withdrawn striker role as they chase the game late.
Full time. Did very little of note.
Koleosho starts the opening match of the Premiership season, against the champions. Cue the gnashing of teeth.
Haaland scores in the third minute, a little late.
Koleoshi has some very clever touches around the midfield, but also just had a turnover pass and shoved down Rico Lewis. If any of our committed 18 year olds was doing this, we’d be drooling. Seems physically larger than last year at Espanyol.
Are we recruiting this guy?
Gifted a turnover but stripped by Rodri on his way into the box.
US and Canada both trying to pull him away from Italy.
Haaland trying to go wire to wire on top of the scorers list. 2-0, assist to Alvarez, happened on the opposite side from Luca.
Loose ball to Koleosho just inside the corner of the box, one touch pass to an open-ish Foster in the middle, good shot block results. Good service though.
Off in the 61st. Give him points for ball skill in tight space and a Premiership debut where he didn't look out of place. However, have to say he probably lost the physical battle overall.
Koleosho starts against Spurs, and gets an assist in the fourth minute - brilliant speed and some strength to fight off Porro after calling for the ball behind the defense, and then very good cutback pass to Foster to finish. A must-watch highlight. Dual national panic maxing out.
Draws a yellow on Kulusevski.
Koleosho starts at Luton Town. Right wing in a 4-2-3-1.
Very good 1-2 down the sideline earns a corner and he (re)injures Bell in the process.
Luca finally with another bit of creative play. Disappointingly quiet half for him - one of the less impactful players out there.
Foster puts Burnley up 1-0 very late in the first half. Koleosho not involved.
Better start to the second half. Dribbles well in the box but gets too close to the keeper and has it taken.
Koleosho draws a yellow on Burke as he rounded the defender on the way into the box. Could have drawn one earlier this half as well.
Luton formation change to be more aggressive. We'll see if that gives Burnley some counter chances.
Luton dominating recently, and Kompany calls for a fake injury to Foster to give his group a timeout.
Double sub includes Koleosho coming off as Kompany tries for fresh legs to change the momentum, 75th minute.
Overall - not that strong today by Koleosho. Some nice attacking moments. Hoping to hold on for a first Premiership win.
Koleosho on at halftime as Burnley trail Brentford 1-0.
