Crystal Palace striker Benteke relishing playing under Vieira

Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke is relishing playing under Patrick Vieira.

The Eagles are playing a more expansive brand of football under the Frenchman compared to his predecessor, Roy Hodgson.

"The way we are playing now, we are creating more chances," Benteke said.

"For me as a striker, it is a pleasure to be up front. The most important thing is to get points. We took one [at Burnley], and hopefully we will get three next weekend.

"As the manager said, we are following a process. The last game we lost was against Liverpool, and since then we have been consistent. We can still do better, we just have to take it game by game.

"As you can see, it's going fantastically for the club in a short space of time. The way we are playing is nice to watch. We are creating more chances, and that is good for the team and the club."
