Aston Villa midfielder Ashley Westwood is confident Christian Benteke will soon hit on a goalscoring streak.

Westwood is convinced Benteke will take out his frustration on opponents with a glut of goals.

“It’s tough for Christian,” said Westwood, ahead of Saturday’s Villa Park clash against newly-promoted Cardiff.

“I’ll never criticise him with the amount of goals he’s scored and the work he does for us. He’s a great player and one of these days he’ll put five away!

“The main thing is we’re still creating chances. If you’re not creating chances that’s when you start to worry. We’re not a side that doesn’t create chances. We create loads.”
