Christian Benteke produces horror miss against Newcastle

Football News

Christian Benteke has been enjoying a solid debut season at Liverpool - barring injury - so far, and the big Belgian has five goals in 14 games across all competitions. 

That could and probably should have been six goals in 14 against Newcastle today, however the former Aston Villa man spurned a glorious chance to give his side the lead. 

From close range, Benteke pounced on a loose ball in the area with only the 'keeper to beat, but contrived to fire his finish over the bar from less than six yards away.

You can check out the miss below:

Liverpool have the chance to close right in on the top if they can grab a win at St. James' Park this afternoon. They're currently nine points adrift from Leicester, but with Tottenham, Manchester City and Manchester United all dropping points this week, they could move up to be level on points with Spurs in fifth.

It's currently half-time and the score remains 0-0 on Tyneside, with Jurgen Klopp looking for his fifth straight victory at Liverpool.
