And yet we stayed up the season before without him and his goals, and the season before that, and our first season with Cameron Jerome as our main striker.

As JacktheBiscuit says there were many other contributions to the team that season. There's also the logic that if we hadn't spent all that money on Benteke in the summer we would have been starting with someone better than Zeki Fryers at left-back.

If his goals "kept us up" then logically his lack of goals last season would've got us relegated. Instead, what happened was the rest of the team had to make up for it and score them, especially Luka, however no one says "Luka's goals kept us up".
