Inside The Palace v Leicester Programme

28 April 2018

Despite the matchdays at Selhurst Park running out as the season comes to its conclusion, the Palace Programme for the visit of Leicester City on Saturday is once again packed with great interviews and content.

Featuring on the front cover for the penultimate edition of the season is Christian Benteke, and he is the feature of the main interview inside the 88-pages. The Belgian striker talks about his frustrations in front of goal this term, but also reflects on his progress at helping provide his teammates with scoring opportunities:

"In terms of goals it has not been good," he said, reflecting on 2017/18. "Since I have come to England, no matter where I have been I have always scored, so to not score like I wanted to this year has frustrated me. But in terms of the team play, I have been involved more and work more for the team.

"The way we were playing last year, I would have said that I preferred playing alone as we were playing with a lot of crosses. This year is quite different; the manager wants us to build from the back. As we play with two strikers, that means both have to work together to help the midfielders.

"I have a different role now, but I don't mind because the situation of where we were and where we want to go in the league. I have to do that for the team, and fight and go for the challenges to help us get some points."
