Liverpool fans are still not convinced by Christian Benteke despite match-winning goal

It seems not a day goes by at Liverpool when the issue of Christian Benteke does not crop up.

The Belgian striker has often been criticised for not fitting into the Merseyside outfit's style of play, but he has a knack of providing some important goals; like all good forwards should. 

He was at it once again on Wednesday evening as he scored the only goal of the Reds' 1-0 win over Sunderland in the final Premier League game of 2015.

After a frustrating opening 45 minutes, where he failed to have any significant influence on proceedings and was the target for restless fans on social media, he beat Vito Mannone less than a minute into the second half.

It was the second time in a week that the former Aston Villa man was the deciding factor for Liverpool and his tally now stands at six goals in 16 Premier League appearances.

But his mere presence continues to divide Liverpool supporters and many are still not convinced.

In truth, it was not a vintage performance from Benteke and it is clear to see he is not completely comfortable with the style of play under Jurgen Klopp.

However, with injuries to Divock Origi, Daniel Sturridge and Danny Ings, he is the only option for the Anfield outfit at the minute. 

Two match-winning strikes to end 2015 is a great way for Benteke to finish the year and if he can start the New Year in a similar vain then he will go some way to silencing the doubters.
