Crystal Palace striker Benteke hopeful of November return





Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke says he is recovering well from a knee ligament injury and confident of returning to first-team action for the English Premier League club in November.

The Belgium international, Palace’s top scorer last season, sustained the injury in last month’s defeat to league leaders Manchester City.

He has missed the Eagles’ last two games, including their first win of the campaign against champions Chelsea.

“The rehab is going really well and I‘m feeling really happy with the way my ligament is healing. So, hopefully I can be back in a few weeks,” Benteke told the club’s website (www.cpfc.co.uk).

The 26-year-old also wants to impress Belgium manager Roberto Martinez with a goal-scoring run at Palace to boost his chances of being called up for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

“Playing in the World Cup is a big motivation, but it’s only going to improve my performances at the club. I really want to help the team and do well this year to make sure I‘m in the squad,” he added.

Palace are bottom of the table and host ninth-placed Newcastle United on Saturday.
