Aaron Lennon is finally back from his latest of many hamstring injuries. In a 20-minute cameo appearance against Swansea City on Sunday, he looked spectacular and set up Emmanuel Adebayor's second goal. It's incredible how much better Tottenham Hotspur looks when they have a pacy right-footed right winger.

Over the Easter holiday, Tottenham are playing twice in three days. They go away to Sunderland on Saturday, then host Norwich City at White Hart Lane on Monday. Harry Redknapp doesn't want to risk overworking Lennon and claims he will start him in one of the two games, but not the other.

"Next week is going to be a juggling act playing Saturday and Monday. It is going to be survival of the fittest, trying to get two teams ready. We have got a long slap up to Sunderland for a tough game and then we have to come back and play Norwich at home. You are going to have to change the team around. I think Aaron will be ready for 90 minutes but you won't get two games out of him next weekend. No chance He'll play one game - whichever one I choose to play him in."

If you're Harry, what do you do? I'm bringing on Lennon as a sub against Sunderland and starting him against Norwich if it's my call, but I have a feeling y'all are going to have a difference of opinion on this.
