Villa boss Lambert dismisses Benteke burnout fears

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has dismissed burnout fears for Christian Benteke.

Villa's leading scorer has crammed in 44 games so far this season playing for Belgian side Genk, Villa and his country.

Lambert said: "He doesn't look tired at all. The big guy has been terrific.

"He played for Genk before our season started, he's played every game for the national team, and then played for ourselves. He's been absolutely fantastic."
