Benteke on target as Villa fires five past Walsall

Christian Benteke was on the scoresheet as Aston Villa defeated Walsall 5-0 in a pre-season friendly.

The Belgian striker, who re-signed with the club earlier this summer, netted in the second half as Paul Lambert scored five goals for the second match in a row.

Fabian Delph and Gabby Agbonlahor made it 2-0 at the break before Benteke, promising midfielder Jack Grealish and Gary Gardner provided the finishing touches.
