Tottenham winger Lennon proves fitness in friendly action

Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon showed no ill-effects from his groin injury after playing 45 minutes in their 3-1 friendly win over Leyton Orient.

Lennon played the first half against a determined O's side alongside the likes Oscar Jansson, Ryan Fredericks, Jake Livermore, Massimo Luongo, Tom Carroll, Yago Falque and Harry Kane.

"Aaron played 45 minutes, so that's a positive and it's important that we keep the likes of Jake and Tom Carroll ticking over, they've done well in the Europa League and we don't want them to lose that fitness," Tim Sherwood, Spurs' Technical Co-Ordinator, told the club's website.

"Yago Falque got the full 90 minutes into his legs and that fitness is important for him."
