Villa boss Lambert insists no pressure on Benteke

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is confident Christian Benteke's lack of goals isn't proving a problem for his team.

Lambert believes the pressure has been eased on under-fire Benteke thanks to the goalscoring exploits of his team-mates.

"It stops people from saying 'Christian Benteke, will he (score) in this one, or that one'. It becomes a side issue," said Lambert.

"We've 25 lads or so who contribute, and we've been scoring goals from all over the pitch - even the two full-backs have scored.

"The midfield lads have scored, other forwards have scored. You can't always rely on Christian to score.

"We're playing with a lot of confidence at the moment, and the lads are scoring."
