Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke was delighted to score in their defeat to Arsenal on Monday.

Benteke was back on the goal trail in Monday night's 2-1 defeat to Arsenal, netting for the first time since September 14.

"It is a great feeling for me because I've had a hard time and it is good for my confidence," he told Villa's website.

"But it is a shame because we lost. I scored but we didn't take the three points. I hope this goal is going to help me to score more in the coming weeks.

"It was very hard for me because I worked hard to be 100 per cent and tried to give my all.

"Now I feel better and I hope I will keep it up, work hard and see what happens.

"It was a great cross from Matty [Lowton] and I was in a good place."
