Benteke loving role in Vieira’s more adventurous Crystal Palace team


The Eagles have become a more adventurous side since Vieira was appointed this summer, as shown by their 3-3 draw at Burnley on Saturday.

Benteke has benefited from the change in style and he struck twice at Turf Moor to make it four goals in his last five games.

The Belgian is loving life under Vieira and believes Palace can kick on even more as they head into the busy Christmas period.

“The way we are playing now, we are creating more chances,” Bentke said. “For me as a striker, it is a pleasure to be up front. The most important thing is to get points. We took one [at Burnley], and hopefully we will get three next weekend.

“As the manager said, we are following a process. The last game we lost was against Liverpool, and since then we have been consistent. We can still do better, we just have to take it game by game.

“As you can see, it’s going fantastically for the club in a short space of time. The way we are playing is nice to watch. We are creating more chances, and that is good for the team and the club.”
