AARON Lennon said he won't celebrate if he scores against former club Everton this weekend.

The Burnley new boy is looking to get off the mark for the Clarets and he could do so against the team he left in January at Turf Moor on Saturday.

But the former England winger said he retains fond memories of his three years at Goodison Park and wouldn't celebrate any goal as a courtesy to the visiting fans.

Asked why he wouldn't celebrate, the 30-year-old said: "Just because the fans were great for me and so supportive during some difficult times. I won’t celebrate if I score."

He might look back fondly at his time on Merseyside but it's taken Lennon no time at all to settle into life at Turf Moor.

He credits Sean Dyche for helping him to feel at home straight away but insists he's also joined a friendly and welcoming club.

"He’s been brilliant," Lennon said of Dyche. "The gaffer has been great from the moment I got here.

"Everyone has been brilliant and made me feel so welcome and I’ve settled in really well.

"The lads and everyone at the this football club is so welcoming. I’ve been here a month, but it feels like six or so. Everyone has been great.

"The mentality of this football club and everything to do with it (has made it easy to settle). Everyone is so welcoming and friendly. Anything you need there is someone there to help. The mentality makes everyone feel welcome."

Saturday's meeting with Lennon's former club is a crucial one in the battle for seventh place, with the Clarets three points ahead of Everton, with Leicester City sandwiched between the two clubs.

Former Leeds and Tottenham man Lennon sees no reason why Burnley can't continue to keep pace with the battle and finish the campaign in seventh.

"The squad have done fantastic to be in seventh now. There are still may games to and I don’t see why we can’t push on," he said.

"As a team why can’t we maintain sitting in seventh? We’ll take each game as it comes and pick up as many points as possible."

The switch to Turf Moor has seen Lennon operating in a new role as well.

He has occasionally featured on the right hand side, notably in the second half of the 1-1 draw with Manchester City, but has often been used on the left and he insists it's a role he is getting used to.

"I actually don’t mind it," he said. "I have chopped and changed with Johann. I don’t mind. So it’s not been too bad."
