Crystal Palace: Fans were excited to see Christian Benteke start vs Brighton

Crystal Palace: Fans were excited to see Christian Benteke start vs Brighton - Crystal Palace

Though unable to get on the scoresheet, a certain Christian Benteke may well have gone some way into proving these Crystal Palace fans right in their excitement upon seeing him start against Brighton last night. 

Is it time Crystal Palace looked for a more progressive manager?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Belgian hasn’t had it easy in recent years after seeing his goalscoring output drop significantly and had played only a bit-part role during the Eagles’ last two games against Burnley and Watford respectively. However, when the club’s Twitter account revealed he was starting in the big derby game, a number of fans below reacted with excitement.

Perhaps that seems strange given his lack of goals and involvement of late but the former Liverpool man certainly pulled his weight last night. Indeed, as per WhoScored, Benteke attempted the most shots (4), had the most on target (3) and dominated in the air by winning nine more duels (14 to 5) than anyone else on the pitch. Given he also made a key pass and a clearance, his overall contribution is there for all to see.

With that in mind, these fans below can feel vindicated in the fact they were excited to see him.
