Hodgson Still Without Benteke For Newcastle Game

21 September 2018

Christian Benteke is the only absentee for Saturday’s match against Newcastle United, Roy Hodgson has confirmed.

The striker picked up a knee injury whilst away with Belgium on the recent international break but the manager is pleased to have no other concerns in the treatment room.

Hodgson confirmed in his pre-match press conference: “We are still without Christian, he is still nursing the knee injury and having treatment for it.

"But otherwise we have a clean bill of health, which is fantastic.” 

Hodgson's full press conference will be available on demand soon on Palace TV.
