Christian Benteke blow for Aston Villa

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has confirmed that star-striker Christian Benteke will be out of action for at least four weeks.

The Belgium striker hobbled off against Norwich City at the weekend due to a hip injury sustained in the first-half, in which his replacement eventually scored the winner.

The news will be a damaging blow to Lambert and Villa as the striker has continued his impressive form this season, scoring four goals in five games.

The 22-year-old will now face a month on the sidelines.
