Aaron Lennon made his name at Tottenham
Aaron Lennon made his name at Tottenham, but he is currently with Everton hoping to get some regular first-team football.
Lennon was marginalised at Spurs win the club appointed Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager. He has been enjoying much better respect at Goodison Park. Just like many other players before him, he came back to haunt his former club after scoring in the 1-1 draw against Spurs at home. After the game, the former England international rejected any talk about punishing his old club since he just did the job for Everton.
Unlike many other players, Lennon chose to celebrate mildly after having scored a brilliant goal. Romelu Lukaku provided the soft touch required for the 28-year-old to finish brilliantly from a volley. Lennon, though, was a little disappointed by the fact that Everton were unable to get all three points from the game. His goal was cancelled out by Alli just after half-time. Roberto Martinez will be pleased by the fact that they were able to halt the Tottenham juggernaut, which has been on a three match winning run. Their impressive Premier League form has seen them rise up to fifth in the table.
As for Everton, their inconsistent form continues to be a major problem for Martinez.“I was just happy to score my first goal at Goodison.I’ve been wanting to get one for a while.I thought I did well against Tottenham.When I get a chance, I have just got to do as best as I can.Geri [Deulofeu] has been playing brilliantly and sometimes you have just got to be patient in football. We are a team and we support each other. We have so many games coming up and we have such a good squad,” said Lennon. The 28-year-old has featured in only 10 matches this season.
