Higginbotham: Benteke feeding off Crystal Palace wingers

Former Manchester United defender Danny Higginbotham is impressed by Christian Benteke's impact at Crystal Palace.

Higginbotham wrote for The Sun: "There has been a lot of discussion that Benteke has made the difference.

"He has but not in what he is doing — it's more about what Pardew has done by switching the wingers. That has brought them the success.

"Benteke is the focal point but Zaha and Townsend are far more comfortable putting crosses in because he provides them with more of a target.

"The one simple tactical adjustment has changed how the team performs."
