During Belgium’s friendly match against Colombia, Christian Benteke picked up a knee injury that saw him leaving the playing ground on November 14th which forced him to be absent during his national team’s friendly encounter against Japan and still not certain if he will be available to play in Aston Villa’s upcoming Premier League match against West Bromwich.
Although the medical staff of Belgium did however notify Paul Lambert and said that the injury is not as bad as initially suspected and Benteke is expected to make a full recovery just in time for the Premier League.
Taking into consideration that Christian Benteke is Aston Villa’s main goal-scoring player it will be a big blow if they have to cope without him in such important matches of the league.
Last season Aston Villa’s Andreas Weimann managed to scored 7 goals for his club while in this new season he is going through a dry run after only finding the back of the net in 1 occasion out of 10 appearances.
Even failing to make any kind of impact for his national team after 3 World Cup matches for Austria but he did say that the only thing he needs to boost his performances is 1 goal and from there on out everything changes.
“If I get one goal, I feel I can go on a run. I certainly have that mindset. It can set you off. Your confidence starts to rise and you feel you can’t miss.”
“I will start scoring soon. I know it. I am not worried. I am getting in the right positions.”
So far in this season Aston Villa has conceded 12 goals and scored 11 goals, so it would be very appreciated if Weimann can boost their tally of goals and get into higher spots of the Premier League.
