Lennon back on song

Harry Redknapp was full of praise for Aaron Lennon after Saturday's 2-1 win at Fulham.

The winger was in flying form after entering the fray as a second half substitute in another lively Premier League encounter at Craven Cottage.

Aaron came on for full debutant Sandro with Luka Modric moving centrally alongside matchwinner Tom Huddlestone.

And he was a thorn in Fulham's side for the second 45 minutes, creating chances for Rafael van der Vaart as well as taking a couple of decent efforts at goal himself.

In the end, Tom's 25-yarder in the 63rd minute secured maximum points against a side who went into the match unbeaten in the Premier League.

"The first 10 minutes was like a keep-ball session for us," said Harry. "We passed it, passed it, passed it and they couldn't get near us.

"But I felt coming in at half-time that we didn't get behind them enough. For all that possession, we played in front of them a lot. We lacked a bit of a cutting edge.

"Sandro was booked in the first half. I thought he did well but in his enthusiasm to play, he might just mistime another tackle and get sent off.

"I thought Aaron would give us some pace and a threat behind and that's what he did.

"He got at people every time he got on the ball and made things happen. That was him back to his best."
