During Tottenham’s run of poor form, one of the problem positions has been on the right wing where, in the absence of Aaron Lennon, the manager has almost too many options. Kranjcar, VDV, Sandro and Jake Livermore can all fill in but some of Tottenham’s best runs in the Premier League have coincided with Lennon at his best.
Reports today suggest that Aaron has trained all weekend in a bid to be fit for tomorrow night’s game against Bolton but is he important enough to be held back for the visit of Swansea?
That question does rather assume that our priority is the league and you have to agree with that sentiment to an extent before answering the question.
As yet we don’t have an Eden Hazard or even a Milos Krasic to call upon so just how important is Aaron Lennon to our quest for Champions League football next season? Should he be rested for the Swansea game or is one of the players mentioned above a better option on the right?
