Premier League's top five target men (4)

Published Add your comment

Christian Benteke

Although renown for his goal-scoring prowess, rather than his ability to get in amongst the battles with bulking centre-backs, Benteke possesses a stature that few defences can comfortably match.

In Paul Lambert's Villa side, the Belgian is used to receiving passes to feet or into space, but were he somewhere else, it's almost a dead certainty that he'd be an accomplished forward when it comes to winning aerial duels and holding balls up.

At the age of 22, Benteke has a bright future ahead of him, and he cruises into our list of target men due to his all round game.
