Has it really got to the situation when benteke is praised for 3 attempts at goal and an assist. Come on people this is the bare bare minimum. And what's worse I don't think he cares one bit. What passionate professional footballer would have let that ball go out of play. Could you see that new kid leaving the ball or run 100 % sliding into the advertising board saving a throw to a standing ovasion from the crowd.

He was way better but I noticed - others may not agree - that when the ball is passed to him he doesn't take a step towards it - he just waits for it to arrive.
Making a move towards it puts you on the front foot, takes the pace out of the ball a little, gets you away from the defender etc.
He needs to be more pro-active in that department.
He probably deserved that ball to go in but De Gea showed why he is the best keeper in the world!

Agree. Good post. Was a great header/save.

World cup is 3 months away. Benteke has never seemed quite right at Palace. If he wants a move, he has to hit top form right away and maintain it through the end of the season.

 


If you want to live in a world full of kindness, respect and love, try to show these qualities.

Benteke's card was marked after Bournemouth at home and that pen. Last night he played pretty well. Fans often equate chasing lost balls as 'workrate'. It's why someone like Calvin Andrew isn't necessarily hated by us because for all of his lack of ability he would run around like a headless chicken a lot.

True, Benteke isn't a headless chicken. He also could up his work rate slightly, but making him a scapegoat every game is a bit tiresome.

Way better! but you then say what he should be doing! Don't make excuses for him!! He is a striker his job is to score! And hold the ball up which you say he isn't even doing that right! Would we buy him on this form NO. So why keep playing him.

Benteke is a disgrace, there is no two ways about it.He could have reached the ball moments before they scored,he could have used up some time,but he couldn't be bothered.And that laziness ultimately cost us a point.

Agree 100%....That moment was the talking point for me. He is not a 90 minute player, and doesn't give 100% for 100% of the time.

Benteke is getting unfair stick sure hes having a mare but Brighty one went 21 games without scoring. People are pointing out what Murray is doing but hes having a purple patch where everything he touches is going in. He even headed the ball straight at Cech on Sun and he dived over it, Benteke needs a bit of luck like that

Benteke is a 30m striker and a professional footballer, Strikers score goals as a result of skill teamwork and determination... very very occasionally luck plays its part. Remind us how many goals this 30m striker has scored this season.

He may not be scoring but his assist rate is good. Laid on Townsends goal and won free kick for PVAs
