Christian Benteke is set to make his highly anticipated return when Aston Villa face Manchester City this weekend.
This is huge news. Benteke has been out since early April with a ruptured achilles and has been expected to return for a while now. Paul Lambert confirmed that if everything goes as expected, he will probably put Benteke in the squad for the match against Manchester City. That doesn't mean Benteke will start, in fact, he is likely going to be on the bench to kick off the match. It's also worth noting Benteke played and scored in a Villa U21 match earlier this week. We would keep an eye on Benteke in the following weeks and pursue him aggressively if he shows signs of his old self. Oct 2 - 8:07 PM
