Aaron Lennon goal video v Tottenham: Everton man haunts former club with brilliant half-volley

Aaron Lennon played 365 times for Tottenham Hotspur and never scored as good a goal as this.

The Everton winger came back to haunt his former club on their visit to Goodison Park this afternoon with a brilliant half-volley after Romelu Lukaku had teed him up with the perfect layoff.

Lennon spent a decade at Tottenham but Mauricio Pochettino soon sussed out his lack of end product and allowed him to leave permanently for the Toffees last summer, after a successful loan spell.

The 28-year-old scored 30 goals in his 365 Tottenham appearances. He had not found the net for Everton this season before this very un-Lennon finish. The irony will not be lost on Spurs supporters.

Lennon did not celebrate his uncharacteristic goal, but that will be scant consolation to the travelling Tottenham faithful, who had watched their side dominate the opening 20 minutes on Merseyside.
