Benteke Eager To Team Up With Batshuayi

Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke is confident he can form a formidable partnership with Michy Batshuayi at Selhurst Park.

The two Belgium internationals could be linking up for the Eagles in the coming weeks after Batshuayi joined the club on deadline day.

Batshuayi marked his debut against Fulham with an assist as Roy Hodgson’s men secured a 2-0 win on home soil.


Benteke has played with a strike partner for the majority of his career in England and he believes he can fire the club up the table along with the on-loan Chelsea man.

He told the London Evening Standard: “Of course. He is a goalscorer and dangerous in the box, which is good. “We have a lot of different options, which is going to be a headache for the manager. I spoke with Batshuayi the night before he signed.

“I said it [his arrival] is welcome because the situation [at Palace] wasn’t the best. Now he is here we have to welcome another player. “We are four up front now, so it gives the gaffer a lot of options. But the thing is we all have a good relationship.”
