Villa boss Lambert confident Benteke injury not serious

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has played down injury fears for Christian Benteke.

The striker limped off in Saturday’s 1-0 win over Norwich and is likely to miss tomorrow’s League Cup clash with Tottenham.

Lambert said: “It looks like his hip flexor at the moment. The good thing with Christian is he’s usually a quick healer. I don’t know how long, we’ll have to just wait and see."
