Everton star expecting tough run-in

first_imgTottenham midfielder Aaron Lennon admits every match during his loan spell at Everton is going to be a grind.The Merseyside club crashed out of Europe on Thursday night but bounced back with a 2-1 Premier League win over QPR on Sunday, with Lennon scoring the winner.The Toffees are now up to 13th in the league and on 34 points, but the winger still expects eight more battles until the end of the season.“It was a massive three points and a difficult game,” Lennon said. “From the very first minute it was a battle but the lads put in such a good shift.“Every game is a tough game. We have to match teams physically as well as playing our football. It wasn’t the best pitch and it’s small, so it benefited them more.“But I have done that (worked hard) all of my career. I will help my full-back out, help the midfield and try to get forward to get goals and assists. That’s my game.” 1 Aaron Lennon in action for Everton last_img read more
