Team News: Benteke Back on Bench For Watford

12 January 2019

Christian Benteke has been named on the Palace bench for today's game against Watford as Roy Hodgson names an unchanged side from the last league game against Wolves.

The Belgian striker has been out of action since the start of September with a knee injury, but is back in contention today as a substitute as Hodgson rewards the same 11 players who earned a 2-0 win at Molineux last week with another start.
