Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Benteke ahead of Palace game

By Alex Stevens

Liverpool are set to face their former striker Christian Benteke for the first time since his big-money move to Selhurst Park in the summer, and Reds fans are worried on Twitter.

Benteke moved to Crystal Palace for £27million in August and has become their main goal threat, with three strikes in seven Premier League games.

Liverpool are currently in third place in the Premier League, behind leaders Manchester City and Arsenal on goal difference.

Their fans are hoping for three points that could leave them top on their own but they’re concerned that the 25-year-old Benteke will score against his old club.

Here are a selection of their tweets:

The Belgian striker was admired at Liverpool but fans didn’t think he was the right fit for them. He only scored 10 times in 42 matches.

He is now enjoying life in south London, and Crystal Palace are currently in mid-table in 11th place with 11 points from nine games.
