Tom Huddlestone has spoken out in defence of his close friend Aaron Lennon, claiming that he is aware that the winger has not yet hit top form and is a victim of his own success.

“Last season, a lot of people left him one on one with the full-back and we saw what he could do, so maybe people have been a bit smarter this year by doubling up on him but we hope that that will leave someone else free somewhere else on the pitch,” said Huddlestone.

“Against West Ham on Saturday, the left-back was marking him but they also had Boa Morte playing on the left of midfield. He was concentrating on doubling up on Aaron and never really got forward.

“But Aaron has been fine. Teams know his qualities and anybody with two players on them will find it difficult but we have other players
we can turn to if Aaron is being double-marked.”

Harry Redknapp has also defended Lennon and backed him to rediscover his form.

“Aaron has been quiet but he’ll come back,” said the Spurs boss. “He had the injury, which he’s still getting over, and he had a quiet World Cup, but he’s a match-winner on his day. It is very hard to be consistent when people always expect you to go whizzing past full-backs and cross balls.

“Full-backs now are as quick as wingers, so you have to work very hard to receive it. When you’re not getting it as much as you can, it’s not always easy, but he’ll come good.”

  1. i really hope he comes back to form

  2. Talk is cheap. prove it! Hudd can’t even bring his A game to form and what makes him think that Lennon can? Take a look at yourself before talking about others!

  3. lennon will come good, hopefully tonight, he’s low on confidence, double marked and doesnt have enough variety in his locker other than to run past people. Harry is right he needs to work on other aspects of his game….if he does he’ll be even better! i know its a long way off but what do you think about these possible signings happening in january:
    pav and some extra money out to cska moscow in exchange for vagner love
    keane out to buy kevin gameiro
    GDS out to pay for peinaar
    plus the arrival of bongani khumalo

    that would make a huge difference and it wouldnt be that difficult either?
