Huddlestone confident Lennon will recapture best for Spurs

Tom Huddlestone is backing Tottenham teammate Aaron Lennon to find his best form.

Huddlestone and Lennon are close friends and, according to the midfielder, his team-mate has become a victim of the success he had during the early weeks of last season.

"Last season, a lot of people left him one on one with the full-back and we saw what he could do, so maybe people have been a bit smarter this year by doubling up on him but we hope that that will leave someone else free somewhere else on the pitch," said Huddlestone.

"Against West Ham on Saturday, the left-back was marking him but they also had Luis Boa Morte playing on the left of midfield. He was concentrating on doubling up on Aaron and never really got forward.

"But Aaron has been fine. Teams know his qualities and anybody with two players on them will find it difficult but we have other players we can turn to if Aaron is being double-marked."
