Villa winger Albrighton excited playing with Benteke

Aston Villa winger Marc Albrighton is excited to be playing with Christian Benteke.

He says the powerful 6ft 3in striker is the ideal target for Villa's creative players to look for.

"When I was still out injured I was talking to Barry Bannan about him in the dressing room," said Albrighton.

"The first thing Baz said was that when you play with Christian you can just turn round and stand it up for him.

"So it's great to have that kind of presence in the box."
