Everton had their three game win streak snapped today but they still managed a point with a 1-1 draw against Swansea City, with the Toffee goal supplied by Aaron Lennon.
After feeling each other out for the majority of the first half, the deadlock was broken in the 41st minute. James McCarthy made a run down the left and was able to turn his cross back toward the front of goal where Lennon had been left unmarked. He slotted it home, giving him his second goal in three. With an assist added in from four matches ago, it is clear that Lennon is a major influence in their attack right now and should be a safe bet for a start next weekend. Stevem Pienaar looked sharp as well, coming in to replace Leon Osman who looked to have suffered a groin strain. With a shortened fixture list next weekend and a plus matchup, there should be a Toffee or two in your XI for Week 34. Apr 11 - 11:30 AM

Investing in Everton attacking players has proven to be extremely risky as Roberto Martinez juggles his XI from week to week.

Aaron Lennon was quiet this past weekend after he had scored his first goal on his loan spell in the previous league match against QPR. He has been earning starts since Kevin Mirallas went down injured but Mirallas could be back at any time. Unless the Belgian is officially ruled out by Friday, backing Lennon, who has already passed Mirallas in price in the Yahoo game, is a risk. Then there's the curious case of Ross Barkley, who shows flashes of promise but has only started four of the past nine. Steven Naismith, only one goal behind Lukaku for the club lead, can't seem to buy a start, having done so just once in the last five. This creates plenty of budget prices across the board but at the cost of a possible zero if you invest. They do have the early Saturday kickoff this week however, so those playing fantasy games other than Yahoo may have a chance to see team news and make necessary changes before the deadline.

Aaron Lennon scored his first goal for Everton as they beat a spirited QPR side at Loftus Road and eased concerns about Premier League relegation.

Seamus Coleman put Everton 1-0 up in the first half with a clinical finish on the counter attack but QPR equalised when substitute Eduardo Vargas took advantage of some slack defending at a corner to tuck the ball home. Both teams pressed for a winner but it remained 1-1 until the final 15 minutes when Aaron Lennon, on loan from Tottenham, struck the decisive goal for the Toffees from close range to secure the points. This win should ensure Everton avoid a relegation battle over the last eight games but QPR remain deep in the mire, four points from safety.

Aaron Lennon hasn't single-handedly turned the season around for Everton but he has shown a glimpse of promise for a side who is otherwise disappointing fantasy managers at every position.

We had our eyes on Lennon since he made the loan move over the winter as his lack of pitch time at Tottenham lowered his market price to a very attractive figure. Still available at a price below 5m, he got the start last time out and put up seven points. It is certainly nothing to stop the presses for, but from a point per pound perspective, that is good value. Add in the fact that he only completes 59 minutes leads one to assume he can do more if given a full shift. If the Toffees are going to start grabbing results, someone will have to step up. At this point, Lennon is as good a candidate as any.

Everton have acquired the services of Aaron Lennon on a loan deal from Tottenham that will last until the end of the season.

A pretty significant acquisition for Roberto Martinez as he looks to steer the Toffees back on track and finish the season in a respectable position. Reports earlier in the day had the right midfielder heading to Stoke on loan, with Hull and QPR entering the conversation for a moment as well, but in the end, Lennon preferred what Everton had to offer, which among other things, is more guaranteed pitch time. Aiden McGeady stands to become a strict substitute option for Lennon and Kevin Mirallas while Steven Pienaar continues to fade into obscurity, currently in the physio room due to lack of match fitness. At 27, Lennon has seen his stock fall in recent years after being a hot prospect in his earlier twenties. At 4.52m in the Yahoo game, he is worth a potential stash-and-see for those looking for a spark in their midfield, the loan might spark a run of form for him.

West Ham are interested in acquiring Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon.

This is a great fit and makes sense from all angles. Tottenham haven't played Lennon much, with arguably better options available in town, and it would make sense to sell him at his market price. West Ham, on the other hand, could really use some pace on the wings. They couldn't create chances this year and they need creativity and speed as soon as possible. Sunderland are also said to be interested in Lennon.

Tottenham are in talks to sign Ukraine star Yevhen Konoplyanka, according to the Dnipro club president.

Konoplyanka was strongly linked to Liverpool in the January transfer window, but a deal failed to materialise on transfer deadline day and Dnipro are claiming Spurs are now at the front of the queue to seal a deal this summer. If the winger was to join the club he'd be expected to challenge the likes of Aaron Lennon and Andros Townsend, who have pace to burn but often struggle when it comes end product.

Spurs winger, Aaron Lennon, remains sidelined with an abdominal injury and will not feature on Boxing Day against West Bromwich Albion.

New full-time manager, Tim Sherwood, will likely keep faith with Gylfi Sigurdsson and Erik Lamela on the wings. However, after another indifferent performance, Lamela's place may be under threat from Nacer Chadli.

Tottenham head coach Andre Villas-Boas is delighted by the return to full training of winger Aaron Lennon following a foot injury.

Andro Townsend and Gylfi Sigurdsson have made the wing positions their own so far this season, but Lennon's return after 11 games out will put pressure on Townsend in particular, while Nacer Chadli and Erik Lamela are also pushing for starting roles. This shows the strength and depth for the attacking midfield positions in Tottenham's squad and makes it all the more baffling that the team have managed just 6 Premier League goals so far this season.

Tottenham have confirmed the signing of Nacer Chadli from FC Twente after the player agreed personal terms and successfully completed his medical.

Spurs have paid approximately £7millon for the 23-year-old Belgium international, who has won 14 caps for his country. Chadli is a pacey and skilful winger with an eye for goal (scoring 31 times in 106 games for Twente) and will add to Andre Villas-Boas' limited wide options. He has spent most of his career on the left but can play on either flank so will offer an alternative to Aaron Lennon on the right wing. Spurs fans will be hoping he hasn't been purchased to replace Gareth Bale, who remains linked to Real Madrid.

Tottenham have announced that they have reached agreement with FC Twente for the transfer of Nacer Chadli.

Spurs have agreed an undisclosed fee, thought to be about £7m, for the 23-year-old Belgium international, who has won 14 caps. Chadli is a pacey and skillful winger with an eye for goal (scoring 31 times in 106 games for Twente) and will add to Andre Villas-Boas' limited wide options, with Gareth Bale the only recognised left-sided attacker in the squad. He can play on either flank so will also offer an alternative to Aaron Lennon on the right wing.
