‘He doesn’t fit our style of play’ – Liverpool fans react as Christian Benteke starts against West Brom

first_img1 Jurgen Klopp named forward Christian Benteke in his starting XI to face West Brom on Sunday. The Belgian will lead Liverpool’s line at Anfield, despite a poor showing in the defeat at Newcastle last week. The £32.5million summer buy from Aston Villa has netted five times in 15 appearances, as well as struggling with injury for around a month earlier in the season. One of Liverpool’s most impressive wins under the German boss was in the 4-1 demolition of Man City – a game where the 25-year-old started on the bench, with Roberto Firmino starting as a ‘false nine’. Here is how both teams will line up on Merseyside:Liverpool: Mignolet, Clyne, Skrtel, Lovren, Moreno, Henderson, Can, Milner, Lallana, Benteke, Coutinho.West Brom: Myhill, Dawson, McAuley, Olsson, Brunt, Evans, Gardner, Fletcher, Morrison, McClean, Rondon. When the line-up was announced, Liverpool fans took to social media to react to Benteke’s inclusion. See below!
