West Ham United held Everton FC to a barren draw as both sides clashed in the Premier League.
The result was more devastating for the visitors as it was yet another setback in the bid to make the top five at the end of the season.
TheHammers successfully nullified the attacks of the Toffees as Jose Fonte and James Collins were at their best in the game played at the London Stadium. Even the top scorer of the league RomeluLukakudid not have a chance to get a concrete attempt at goal.
Andy Hinchcliffe doesn’t think that there is any need for Everton to be emotional and place a bid for one of their old boys Wayne Rooney because at this stage, he may not be the right player for them.
As per Hinchcliffe, Everton has made big strides ahead in the recent times. They have been trying to blood in new talent and form a young, energetic squad and with Ronald Koeman at the helm, they have also made it a point to adopt a style which looks good on the pitch.
Aaron Lennon is set to start for Everton when they host their Merseyside rivals Liverpool on Monday evening at Goodsion Park because his electric pace will cause problems for a much slower James Milner down the right wing.
The 29-year-old winger started in the match between Everton and Arsenal in which Everton eventually won 2-1. Although he had a poor and quiet game, he showed glimpses of what he can give to his team going forward. He gave his marker some problems on the wing but his final ball let him down at times.
Aaron Lennon has revealed that Everton players are no longer permitted to make use of their mobile phones during meal times.
The protocol has been implemented by the new Everton manager Ronald Koeman, and said to be just one of a countable number of changes the new coach has made since his arrival at the club in the summer.
The Dutchman has ensured players lose weight, adopt faster time-saving and work harder in training sessions as well as restricting the usage of their mobile phones during meal.
“Ronald Koeman is really good,” The 29-year old Lennon told Match Magazine, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.
Everton’s Premier League season of 2015-16 was not a particular memorable one as they finished in the 11th spot which is fairly underwhelming for a club that had consistently managed to compete for a European position.
It was during this season that Roberto Martinez was sacked as the head coach of Everton and eventually replaced by Ronald Koeman.
RomeluLukaku has stated that Aaron Lennon is one of the best players he has worked with.
He said that the player is a professional and will do everything he can to help his team win a game. For Lukaku, it is a great pleasure to play alongside a player of his quality.
RomeluLukaku said that he has been following Aaron Lennon since his time at Tottenham Hotspur since his youth. He stated that he is a quality player and that he is among the best players when it comes to dribbling around people. Lukaku said that he has come to know the player better when they have been working together at Everton and believes that he will be helpful for Everton.
Everton wingers Aaron Lennon was caught for speeding near their training ground. Lennon was not caught alone.
Kevin Mirallas was also caught by a speed camera near to the Finch Farm training ground. Former England star Lennon and Belgian international Mirallas were caught breaking the 40mph limit in a temporary restriction area near the Runcorn Bridge.
A court on Thursday heard Mirallas, 28, was driving at 69mph in a Nissan and just eleven minutes earlier, his team mate Lennon, 29, was recorded driving his Land Rover at 56mph. The Belgian international Mirallas, who lives in Hale, Cheshire, pleaded guilty in his absence. He is due to be sentenced next month and faces a possible driving ban because of the speed he was travelling.
Aaron Lennon made his return in the FA Cup semi-final game against Manchester United but could not prevent his team from being beaten.
The match ended 2-1 for the Red Devils despite Everton pushing later on in the game.
It has been a game of two halves where Manchester United dominated the first half and created numerous occasions. Anthony Martial was incredible during the first period as he tormented the Everton defence with his dribble and cross.
The first goal came through MarouaneFellaini in the 34th minute after good work from Anthony Martial. With Wayne Rooney playing his first game in the center of midfield, Manchester United controlled the first half and did not allow Everton any time on the ball.
Aaron Lennon says that one of the reasons for his improved goal record is the manager Roberto Martinez has been encouraging the player to take up better positions in front of goal.
Up until now, Lennon has always been viewed as a goal creator rather than a scorer. Due to his impressive pace, the England international is often able to get past fullbacks with relative ease. This allows him to put the ball into a dangerous area for the strikers to head. This style of play meant that Lennon has only five goals as his best ever scoring record in a single campaign.
