It also suggests we should've been relegated last season due to his lack of goals, and likewise this season.

It's perfectly valid.


Benteke's goals and Sakho's shoring up of our creaky defence were the difference between us being in the PL today or thrashing around in the Championship trying to figure out how we're going to pay the leccy bill.
