Well it wasn’t legit.. but I get what you are saying.

He shouldn’t be written off, he looks to have potential, but I also wouldn’t be getting excited about him. He’s and unknown and has shown glimpses of good, glimpses of not so. He needs to be given time, a decent pre season with the team in summer will help. Hopefully his injury isn’t a bad one.

He looks like an honest pro. He chases down, he doesn’t whinge at others. Does look very one footed though.

Want to see him in a full strength side in place of benteke. Done with him.

There was no foul, only the referee's lack of backbone and brain prevented it from being a goal.

Not if a poster is suggesting he's not good enough to score goals in the PL. He's proved that he's capable of scoring a legitimate goal, regardless of it being given, therefore in this context, it is completely relevant.

I only bet on Tomkins and Luca to score, I have little faith in anyone else scoring.

Hilarious post.

Benteke has had so many golden opportunities yet has consistently failed to score. He's missed more chances than any other player - or is he second behind Salah? Either way he has been criminal in front of goal this season.

What's really surprising is how so many people on here are willing to write off a young striker in sorloth who has just arrived in a new country, in a new league, off the back of the equivalent of a pre season break. And he also played his first four games against top class opposition - and often out of position. Amazing how he is given such little leeway given all the circumstances.

He has made a decent start and I'm sure he will get better.

You missed out the bit about how he didn’t own any boots and had to borrow some and how he got here as a stowaway.

Yes but it’s all geared up to your anti Benteke agenda.

Well, it's a fact so not sure what's in dispute.

I don't have an anti-Benteke agenda. I just wish he wasn't so bang average. The more he scores the better we do, so I want him to succeed again. I watched him closely again yesterday and he's not doing enough. But I guess it's all about opinions and you're entitled to yours.

Look I won’t cry my eyes out if he’s not here next season. But imo he is our best bet up top by quite a margin. I don’t quite understand why the goals have not gone in but I still think he links play well especially when our better players are around him. Maybe not having another striker for so long has been a reason together with his injury. Sorloth will hopefully be an asset but it has to be Benteke from now till the end for me.

Neither Sorloth nor Benteke are the answer to the question.
