Aaron Lennon put in one of his best performances in a Tottenham shirt as Andre Villas-Boas' men moved up to third in the Barclays Premier League with a 3-1 victory over Reading.

Tottenham were caught cold in the fourth minute when Pavel Pogrebnyak scored in his second successive game, but the lead lasted just over four minutes.

Gylfi Sigurdsson crossed for Michael Dawson to score his first league goal since February 2011 and Spurs then took control of the game in the second half thanks in no small part to the influence of Lennon. The England winger crossed to allow Emmanuel Adebayor to put Spurs ahead and Clint Dempsey's deflected effort 11 minutes from time sealed the win.
