Can't see him strolling straight back into the first 11. What I like about Ayew's 2 goals is he is in the right place at the right time. With Wickham as the big powerful centre forward as another option Benteke will have to work extra hard in training and wait his chance.
Perhaps give him a 20 minute run out in the second half if circumstances favour.

If he does feature, I'll certainly be interested to see whether an unfit Benteke who has not played for a while is less mobile (although that may constitute standing perfectly still) then the previous 18 months or whether he may actually come back with some renewed desire and vigour.

I do however feel that whilst I pray for some optimism, Benteke is no longer an asset and a shadow of his former self. We desperately need someone to make an impact in front of goal.

What I like about them is that they do what no other striker seems to have done for us for ages - direct the ball not only on target but also where the keeper isn't. Soerloth's unerring ability to hit it straight at him drove me round the twist.

Of course against T***FFS one of our most prolific scorers in recent years has been Troy Deeney's arse.

Must say I haven't any big hope that CB will go on a scoring spree. And Roy should keep Ayew in starting line-up with Connor W as the obvious sub!

The great hope I have is that he's had a minor knee niggle for ages that this operation finally fixed. And we'll now get the Aston Villa Benteke. Don't forget he was almost at 1 in 2 for a while for us...until he wasn't.

My personal view is that I'd rather we signed nobody than someone for the sake of it.

I think that you'll find that everyone shares that view
