James McArthur has backed team-mate Christian Benteke to turn his form around this season after another very disappointing display against Liverpool, where he missed two glorious opportunities. But he always has some great opportunities to win more money online. You also can join him, and playing something like real money pokies, is the best way to do it, don’t underestimate your chances.
After Sadio Mane cancelled out Luka Milivojevic’s first half penalty, Benteke was presented with two clear-cut chances to potentially put the game beyond Liverpool and put Palace in a brilliant position in the relegation battle. Both opportunities came to the Belgian within two minutes, but he blazed both shots over Karius’ net.
Benteke has actually only scored two goals in the Premier League all season after 15 league goals in the previous campaign.
McArthur, however, has backed the miss-firing forward. The midfielder said:
They were tough chances, what’s positive is he’s playing well and getting those chances. Confidence-wise, as soon a he gets one, I’m sure he’ll start firing them in.
Manager Roy Hodgson has also shown support for Benteke, saying he is pleased with the striker’s all-round play.
His performance up to the missed chances was good in terms of work rate and his ability to bring others into the game. But of course, like everything else, when you are a centre-forwar and you miss chances, that is what you are judged by.
It is true that Benteke can bring more to the table than goals, however, not many players are taking goal-scoring responsibility from open play at the moment for Palace, so Benteke will be determined to showcase his abilities in the last weeks of the season to help Palace last another year in the top flight.
