Everton ace player, Aaron Lennon has been rated a decent player for the performance he put in last season for The Toffees.
Many Pundits reviewed the efforts put in last season by different players and the winger scored well, for a player that barely played a third of the season.
There are not too many Everton players who it can be said had positive seasons this year. There are even fewer Toffees who had career-best seasons. For Lennon, he had a career best season as he scored the most goals and played impressively, terrifying defenses for a 10-week period in the middle of the season. In the top flight football league, he had just 18 starts as the season for him was injury-ravaged. He scored just 5 goals but with an 81.2 percent passing accuracy.
The player is not known for his goal scoring aptitude but he managed to pick up five goals this season, setting a new season-best total in that department. Almost all the Pundits agreed that the Englishman maintained his lightning pace, which has always been the winger’s most dangerous trait. He continued to be capable both of taking players on with the ball in his feet and stretching opposing backlines by constantly using his speed to get in behind defenders.
For a time, these two factors came together to create a tremendous run from January to March, in which Lennon put together six goals and an assist in all competitions.
For most of these matches, Lennon occupied the right wing and Tom Cleverley occupied the left wing. Given that Cleverley is not a true winger, this put much of the offensive onus on Lennon, with which he thrived. Lennon was also decent defensively for Everton. At some point, he was arguably the team’s best player. However, for the final third of the season, he failed to hit the heights of the late winter as they struggled, the whole team, but managed to make it to the next season.
