The Everton winger impressed the pundit on Sunday afternoon.
And, while Owen wasn’t making totally inappropriate gaffes in commentary - like suggesting Carlisle need it to rain more - he was praising Everton on Twitter.
After their loss to Manchester City in the Capital One Cup, Owen expressed his bewilderment as to how they are in the bottom half of the Premier League.
It’s pretty clear why they are and fans berated him on Twitter for another poor comment…
This time around, though, there were few complaints as he lavished praise on Everton winger Lennon:
Touch of the season from Lennon today to set up his goal. Made it look so much ... Read my full lob on Sportlobster: https://t.co/E5y0kTioa2— michael owen (@themichaelowen) January 31, 2016
Everton being in the fifth-round draw will be a major boost for fans.
After being two goals up on aggregate against Manchester City, the fact Roberto Martinez couldn’t do the obvious thing and defend the lead will have hugely disappointed supporters.
The league looks a bust - so all hope on the FA Cup.
