Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to Christian Benteke’s performance against Liverpool

Christian Benteke was on target for Aston Villa against Liverpool in the semi-finals of the FA Cup at London’s Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

Aston Villa secured their place in the final of the FA Cup this season with a 2-1 victory over Liverpool at London’s Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

The Villans were the ‘underdogs’ heading into the semi-final tie, but it was Tim Sherwood’s side who picked up the win and booked a place in the final of the prestigious competition.

One of the key players for Villa at Wembley was Christian Benteke, with the Belgium international striker restoring parity in the 36th minute.

The 24-year-old has recently returned to form under Sherwood and has been banging in the goals left, right and centre.

The former Genk star was a menace to the Liverpool defence in the tie, and he was involved in Villa’s second and what proved to be the winning goal.

The Villans are not entirely safe from relegation yet, but with Benteke in red-hot form, they have a much better chance of avoiding the drop from the Premier League now than they had a couple of months ago.

Following the win against Liverpool, Villa fans took to social networking site Twitter to have their say on the performance of Benteke in the semi-final encounter.
