26th Dec 2020 | Premier League
Benteke has scored 28 headed goals in the Premier League, ranking third behind Crouch and Giroud. Back in favour and back in form in late 2020.
Everyone will have this one down as a home win with Villa enjoying their best top flight campaign in nearly 20 years and Palace arriving off the back of a 7-0 home defeat.
But Skybet are offering an enhanced 9/1 on Christian Benteke scoring a header on his return to Villa Park and that suddenly looks interesting.
The Belgian missed the mauling at the hands of Liverpool and will certainly expect to walk straight back into the starting line-up after 3 goals in 3 starts this season.
Benteke found the net with a stooped header against West Brom before adding a flicked header in the next away outing at West Ham. With his confidence back, his threat level rises exponentially.
