Crystal Palace boss Hodgson: Benteke just needs a break

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson is confident the goals will arrive for Christian Benteke.

The Belgium striker has scored 20 goals in 73 appearances for Crystal Palace and just two in 2018.

Hodgson said, "He needs that break that all front players need. Unfortunately when you are a front player and you are signed for relatively big money and you are a big name player, if you are not scoring goals then you unfortunately you are going to be under the microscope.

"There is nothing we can do to help other than show our confidence in him and hope that the break will come for him one day and it will lead to a flood of goals."
