Andre's Delight For Aaron
ANDRE'S DELIGHT FOR AARON
Posted 05 March 2013 09:06am
Andre Villas-Boas was delighted to see Aaron Lennon on the scoresheet again in Sunday's North London derby.
The winger provided a textbook finish from Scott Parker's pass, skipping around Wojciech Szczesny before slotting into an empty net to make it 2-0 at the Lane.
That was the second goal in as many minutes after Gareth Bale's finished an almost carbon-copy goal from Gylfi Sigurdsson's pass.
Arsenal replied five minutes into the second half but we secured a deserved 2-1 win to move into third in the Premier League, stretching our current run to 12 unbeaten and one loss in 16 matches.
"It was important for Aaron because sometimes he gets into a great finishing positions but he’s an unselfish player, he looks to assist," said Andre.
"This time, he got in behind Arsenal and we all enjoyed the finish."
The victory maintained another unbeaten sequence - when Aaron scores, we don't lose!
That amazing record has now stretched to 27 matches with 24 wins and three draws.
