Lennon also scored in the Toffees’ 3-1 win over rock-bottom Aston Villa on Tuesday night.

What a month February has proved for England international Aaron Lennon – a period this season that some would agree has rejuvenated his Premier League career.

The 28-year-old; who has 21 international caps for the Three Lions, but has not featured for his country since June 2013 against Brazil, joined the Toffees initially on loan from fellow English top-flight rivals Tottenham last February, before sealing a permanent move to Merseyside back in September 2015.

Since working with boss Roberto Martinez, the pacey winger has flourished at Goodison Park, scoring seven goals and providing three assists in 33 first-team appearances for the club over the past 12 months.

Two of those strikes; plus one assist, came in February, with Lennon playing a key role in helping Everton collect six points from a possible nine available in the Premier League last month.

Firstly the former Spurs star opened the floodgates against Newcastle United in Everton’s 3-0 win over the Magpies, before turning provider for fellow midfielder Ross Barkley after being tripped in the 18-yard area for the resulting penalty.

Then the Leeds United youth graduate netted for the second successive league outing during his side’s impressive 3-0 victory at the Britannia Stadium over Stoke City a few days later.
