Lennon's Everton influence show why Spurs should reconsider sale

Aaron Lennon 3

Tottenham's on-loan winger has been in impressive form at Goodison Park.

Aaron Lennon had another fine game for Everton in their impressive 3-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday, leading many Spurs fans to ask whether Mauricio Pochettino was right to loan the 28-year-old, let alone consider selling him this summer.

In Lennon's eleven games since arriving at Goodison Park he has helped his team to five wins, with just three losses.

Lennon made his debut as a substitute in the 0-0 draw with Liverpool in February, and since that match has started every league game aside from the loss to Arsenal.

The England winger has scored twice in that run, as well as winning a penalty against Newcastle. But his overall play has been a huge weapon for Martinez's side, especially in the last half a dozen games.

Compared to Everton's eleven matches before his arrival indicates how much of a positive contribution he has made at turning around what looked like being a very disappointing season for Roberto Martinez.

The Toffees were on a terrible run, losing six times, drawing three times and winning just twice before Lennon signed on loan from Spurs. Having dipped as low as fourteenth in the league, now they are up to tenth.

Lennon is said to be enjoying his first team football at Goodison Park, he may now be eager to make a permeant switch.

Curiously, right wing has been a problem position for Tottenham for much of this season, and Lennon's pace and directness, which has been utitilised so well by Everton in recent games, may have been at least as useful as Andros Townsend and Erik Lamela have been, the two players that have been rotated on the right of the Spurs midfield.

Lennon is said to be enjoying his first team football at Goodison Park, he may now be eager to make a permanent switch. With rumours that Pochettino is willing to sell the winger, the big question has to be, is there an argument that the former Leeds man is still the club's best in that position?
