Can't see Roy dropping Benteke but I hope he proves me wrong.

Despite the obviousin that he is not taking chances and having an abysmal run, he will come good. He is the only proven goalscorer in the team, and is not lazy as some have suggested, it would be foolish to drop him.

Yes, dropping Benteke would not exactly help his confidence problem, would it ?

It may wake him up though. Starting him every week isnt helping his confidence problem either.

There is also the other side of this argument that he needs a serious rocket up his arse.

He is playing well just not scoring and thats his main job in the team, i can see him doing well with Sorloth as the front man working off of him.

Absolutely.
All Strikers,Go through Lean Spells,but if he Keeps getting into the Correct Positions he'll Start taking them,
Hopefully,Alexander Sorloth will Put him under the,Necessary,Pressure.
With Wilf Zaha,Currently out,Sorloth has to Play in a Wider Position with,Christian Benteke,as the Target-Man.

This is a very long lean spell...

Sorloth is not a wide player (though he can do a job there but it's not ideal). When Wilf is back I think we may see Sorloth starting centrally and Benteke benched - unless the latter can finally hit some form. Let's hope he does as we need goals from Benteke asap.

No-one is going to claim Benteke is playing well, no-one is going to claim that he is performing at the level we would expect.

However, no other Palace player (excluding Luka from the pen spot) has assisted and/or scored more PL goals than Benteke this season.

Excluding penalties we have scored 18 goals. Benteke has set up or scored 1/3 of those, Townsend has set up or scored 1/3 of those, with Wilf just 1 behind.

With the players who are not out for the rest of the season, if we can create a solid defensive base with Ward/TFM, Tomkins, Sakho, PVA/Schlupp and Luka and Cabaye in front then a front 4 of Townsend, Sorloth, Benteke and Zaha should be enough to score a reasonable number of goals through to the end of the season.

I think he is playing well he has been a key player in most of our wins, lets see how he comes back from this break i notice his hand is wrapped up maybe he took his anger out on a door and has got it out of his system.

I think it will be Sørloth and Benteke in a 4-4-2 when Zaha is back with Sørloth doing the no.10 role as he is more mobile.

Look back at Benteke's assists - they stretch the meaning in many cases. The one at Burnley at home is a good example.

I'd give Benteke one or two more chances but if he doesn't finally deliver then time to drop him and give Sorloth a chance in his best position rather than out wide.
