Christian Benteke has come under fire over the last couple of weeks due to poor performances since joining Liverpool in the summer.
The former Aston Villa hitman developed a fearsome reputation for scoring regularly when he was at Villa Park. However, he has struggled to find the coherence needed to score in an attacking team like Liverpool.
Many initially questioned the desire of Liverpool to sign a player like Benteke, who was more suited towards a physical team rather than a team looking to play the ball on the ground. However, former manager Brendan Rodgers went ahead with the signing.
A return of seven goals in 22 appearances does sound mediocre for a player who has cost club more than £30 million.

Questions over the ability of Daniel Sturridge continuously lead the Liverpool team have been put under serious consideration after the latest hamstring injury to the striker.
Sturridge has been hit by numerous injuries in the last two years and this has reduced to under 30 appearances during this period. It has also meant that Liverpool have nowhere been near enough to their target of qualifying for the top four or even challenging for the title. They are undoubtedly aware of the quality possessed by the former Chelsea striker, but his injury record is proving to be a major source of frustration.

Daniel Sturridge has had a stop start career in the last couple of years and there appears to be no respite immediately after he has been ruled out yet again with a slight knock.
Sturridge started playing for new manager Jurgen Klopp only recently and he has already gone into the sidelines following a knock in training. The new manager has claimed that he does not know when the striker would be able to resume first-team football once again. This comes as a major disappointment for Liverpool fans, who had played a lot of faith in the 26-year-old striker.

Roy Hodgson reckons matches against some of the strong teams in the coming months will provide the ideal test for England ahead of the Euro Cup 2016.
England blew away all the opponents in the qualifiers, but, Hodgson has the idea that in the main tournament, the level of the opposition would not be quite the same.
Speaking to http://www.bet-bonuscode.co.uk/, Hodgson said, “There is no question of us considering ourselves invincible. The other sides will also have a lot of firepower and they will be fully capable of beating us if they play better.”

Liverpool struggled without Daniel Sturridge more than they were hampered after the loss of Luis Suarez according to former goalkeeper David James.
The club once again finished outside the top four places – after a season in which they had secured runners-up spot – and much of it was down to the lack of goals. After having come close to breaking the Premier League scoring record in a campaign, Liverpool managed just over the goal per game last season. Summer signing Mario Balotelli returned just one league goal from his exploits throughout the campaign.
