Christian Benteke, who was somewhat of a surprise omission from Jurgen Klopp's starting XI in Liverpool's win over Manchester City this past weekend, is in contention to face Bordeaux in Europa League action on Wednesday.
Liverpool fans were likely put off by seeing two major striker weapons, Benteke and Daniel Sturridge, named to the bench against the Sky Blues, but clearly Klopp knew better as the Reds ran roughshod at the Etihad in a resounding win that many point to as a benchmark turnaround for the club and their season. Benteke still managed to contribute, supplying an assist for Liverpool's final goal in a 14 minute substitution appearance. Depending on the status of Philippe Coutinho, both strikers could be held to bench roles again this weekend against the Swans, but it looks pretty clear that Benteke is ahead of Sturridge in the pecking order.
