Everton fans happy with Lennon contribution

It has been rare this season for Everton fans to feel happy after a football match, but there will be some who will be waking up on Monday with smiles on their faces.

A miserable run of two wins in nine Premier League games resulted in the sacking of manager Ronald Koeman.

Under interim coach David Unsworth, the team suffered three defeats, including elimination from the Europa League.

On Sunday, though, the players managed to come from 2-0 down to seal a 3-2 victory over Watford at Goodison Park.

It was not the most attractive of displays, but it was a much-needed win for the Merseyside outfit, who climbed out of the relegation zone as a result.

Aaron Lennon has worked his way back into contention after spending time over the summer tackling his personal demons off the pitch.

This season, the winger has made six appearances in all competitions, three of which have been in the Premier League.

On Sunday, the 30-year-old came off the substitutes bench in the 85th minute and played a key role in getting the winner as he earned a penalty after being brought down by Jose Holebas.

Leighton Baines netted from the spot and Everton managed to see out the win as Tom Cleverley missed a late penalty.

After the match, Lennon took to Twitter and the fans were quick to praise him.
