The Nigerian forward, who made a significant impact upon his return to the starting lineup after four games, proved instrumental in securing the crucial three points for his side, Footballrover reports.

Lookman displayed exceptional vision and precision, epitomised by his first assist just before halftime.

With a perfectly executed cross from a corner, he set up Charles De Ketelaere for a composed header, giving Atalanta a vital lead.

As the second half unfolded, the Super Eagles winger continued to dictate proceedings, orchestrating Atalanta’s attacking manoeuvres.

In the 73rd minute, he once again showed his unselfish play, providing a sublime assist to Toure, who duly capitalised on the opportunity to extend Atalanta’s lead with a clinical finish.

Despite a late scare with Daniel Maldini’s goal for Monza in the 89th minute, Atalanta held firm to secure the hard-fought victory.

Besides displaying individual brilliance, Lookman’s crucial contributions throughout the match define his importance to Atalanta’s pursuit of UEFA Champions League qualification.

His brace of assists also earned him a coveted accolade, as he joined an elite group of players in Serie A history.

With more than 20 goals and over 10 assists since the commencement of last season, Lookman now stands alongside the likes of Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, Rafael Leão, Paulo Dybala, and Olivier Giroud as one of the league’s most impactful players.

With the race for European qualification intensifying, his ability to deliver on the grandest stage could prove decisive in shaping Atalanta’s fortunes in the Serie A season ahead.
