And key to their glories has been the diminutive right winger, according to the Portuguese manager.
“It’s been a very good week for us,” said Villas-Boas. “We managed to shorten the distance a lot to the top and moved ourselves back in to fourth position, level on points with third.
“It’s been a good week for the club and for the players and we congratulate them for their efforts. They’ve been absolutely amazing.
“So many individuals are at another level right now you almost want to touch on them all but Aaron Lennon has been incredible.
“Sometimes you think of him in the shadow of Gareth Bale but he’s absolutely amazing. It’s good to congratulate him too.”
