Aaron Lennon starts for Tottenham Hotspur against Norwich City

First published in Sport by

Winger Aaron Lennon makes his first start for Tottenham since returning from a hamstring injury that kept him out for four weeks.

The influential midfielder has come off the bench in Spurs’ last two Premier League outings but starts against Norwich City in place of Rafael van der Vaart at White Hart Lane today.

Centre-back Ledley King also comes into the team, replacing William Gallas who played against Sunderland on Saturday.

Following the dour stalemate at the Stadium of Light, Harry Redknapp has also given Jermain Defoe and Louis Saha places in the starting XI, with Emmanuel Adebayor on the bench.

Jake Livermore has been preferred in midfield to Sandro following the Brazilian’s indifferent performance against the Black Cats two days ago.

Tottenham: Friedel, Walker, Kaboul, King, Assou-Ekotto, Lennon, Livermore, Modric, Bale, Saha, Defoe.

Subs: Cudicini, Adebayor, Van der Vaart, Kranjcar, Rose, Sandro, Nelsen.

Norwich: Ruddy, Martin, Ryan Bennett, Ward, Drury, Elliott Bennett, Howson, Johnson, Pilkington, Holt, Wilbraham.

Subs: Steer, Morison, Crofts, Jackson, Surman, Hoolahan, Barnett.

Referee: Michael Oliver (Northumberland)
