Benteke insists he will take Crystal Palace penalty duties off Cabaye

Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke has insisted that he will take the penalty duties off midfielder Yohan Cabaye from now on.

The Belgian, who joined from Liverpool in a £27million deal this summer, won a penalty for his side against Bournemouth on Saturday but Cabaye missed the opportunity to equalise from the spot in the eventual 1-1 draw.

Benteke said: "I asked Yohan if I could take and he said he was taking it. But next time I will take it."

Palace next meet undefeated Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium after the international break.
