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.

On the counter attack, Lennon is very useful as he can use his speed and great skills to get past any defender. He often gives perfect early deliveries into the box for Romelu Lukaku to poke the ball home. On his day, he can be an asset to Ronald Koeman and The Toffees.

The player has struggled to regularly secure games under his belt under Ronald Koeman this season and has so far picked up just one assist in seven Premier League appearances, which is likely to be the reason why he has not had so many opportunities to prove his worth.
Milner is a midfielder on the wing and find spaces to deliver early crosses into the box for Lukaku, then Liverpool’s shaky defence might struggle in the match.
