Martinez: I expect Lennon to be involved at the weekend

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has absolutely no qualms about including new signing Aaron Lennon at the weekend, despite the winger having no match practice.

Everton face Chelsea and the Catalan feels that Lennon will definitely be involved one way or another as he feels at home at Everton.

‘I’m not worried about his physical state and he needs to play games now to sharpen up his play,’ said Martinez on Lennon.

‘He’s refreshed and is in a great position. He knows the football club inside out and is desperate to get back to Goodison.

‘From that point of view, I expect Aaron to be involved one way or another at the weekend.’

Lennon himself is confident that he can get up to speed straight away.

‘I haven’t played pre-season games but I’ve trained a lot and I feel really good,’ he told

‘I’m in good condition so once I get the game time in I don’t see why I won’t be straight up to speed.

Do you think Lennon will start at the weekend?
