Liverpool fans took to Twitter to congratulate former striker Christian Benteke after he scored against Everton on Friday.

The 25-year-old striker equalised the scoreline after Romelu Lukaku put Everton in front in the first half in the 1-1 draw.

Benteke has now scored three goals in seven fixtures for Palace since moving from Anfield in a £27million deal.

Fans of the Reds were pleased for their ex-forward scoring against their rivals and many took to social media to congratulate the Belgium international.

Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Benteke failed to establish himself at Anfield, scoring just 10 goals in 42 appearances for the club following his £32.5million move from Aston Villa in the summer of 2015.

He is now looking to establish himself at Sellhurst Park with the south east London side paying out a large amount of their budget on the forward.

However, Liverpool have not missed goals in their side in the new campaign with the Reds scoring an impressive 16 goals in their first six league fixtures.

There hasn’t been an out and out goal scorer in the team with Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino, Adam Lallana, Sadio Mane and James Milner all on three league goals each.
