Jurgen Klopp revealed in his press conference ahead of Liverpool's Europa League tie with Villareal that striker Christian Benteke is fit an available for selection.
Benteke is fully recovered from knee ligament damage that kept him out of action for a month and offers much-needed depth at the striker position now that Divock Origi is sidelined. Benteke has been a big disappointment in his first season at Anfield but that will not stop Klopp from trying to extract the most he can from the Belgian. Daniel Sturridge will almost certainly be the starter for both legs of the Europa League semifinal and is the preferred option in league play, but with a heavy schedule, it is possible we see Benteke start one of the last four league games to preserve Sturridge. This will not be good news for Sturridge owners in fantasy but he will certainly have value down the stretch regardless. Benteke cannot be counted on for more than one start at this point, and should remain off of fantasy rosters. Apr 28 - 1:27 PM
