I've not been Benteke's biggest fan but I thought he was much better yesterday. He looked up for it, he won most of aerial duels, he was more mobile and he nearly scored of course with that fantastic bicycle kick. He was impressive and hopefully that is a sign of things to come.

As others have said, I'd love to see him and Batshuayi up front, with Wilf and Townsend wide. That is a front four that is potentially as good as anything outside the top six.

Great response from the crowd after he hit the bar, too.
It seemed to really lift him.

Agree with all that. The post-injury Benteke seems leaner and hungrier. Early-season Benteke would never have attempted that overhead kick. A few more games to get match-sharp, and we could really see the benefit.

I know its only Fulham but Benteke gave the whole side a better shape yesterday. Much as Conner did against Spurs. As a counter attacking side we need a player who can hold the ball up and relieve pressure. It doesn't need to be the "big man up top". RLC did it last year from wide midfield

He played well first half v Leicester away 14 months ago too. The last time he did. Best to wait another few games before judgement on his possible improvement. Overhead kick was a smasher but then again he is a £30mill forward so should be able to do impressive things at least once every game.

Absolutely. Benteke's strength caused Christie to be all over the place & concede the pen.

Doesn’t fit into our side anymore.

Time to let him go and give the other players a chance up top.

Yeah, think the football we play (or at least try to play) is a bit too inticrate for him.

Don’t think it’s anything to do with the football we play.
He’s just shit. Let’s be honest. Any defence of him now is borderline pshycotic and you should seek immediate help.
Trouble is being serious. Nobody in their right mind is going to pay anything more than £8 million for him.

We should have sold him at the beginning of the season when we could have got £10m+ for him. Stuck with him now. I’m not overly worried now we have Batman though. Just use Benteke as an impact sub whether we are chasing a game or looking to close one out.

Who wanted him at the beginning of the season?
