Jack Grealish praised Christian Benteke on Instagram after the former Aston Villa favourite scored a last-minute winner against Brighton on Monday night.
Benteke knows a thing or two about scoring in hotly-contested rivalry games – he scored in his only appearance for Villa against Birmingham in 2015.
And whilst the supporters weren’t present at the AMEX Stadium, Benteke was at it again, this time his first-time volley secured Crystal Palace all three points against their bitter rivals Brighton.
After Benteke posted his reaction to the win on Instagram, this is what Grealish posted in the comments section: ‘What a finish bro’ added with fire and clapping emojis.
Eberechi Eze, who started the game against Brighton, also reacted as he hilariously wrote: ‘Always the last five.’
Whilst Grealish ponders how long he will be out of action for, he enjoyed what he saw from his former teammate yesterday.
Benteke has struggled to rediscover the form that saw him win huge plaudits during his days at Villa Park, but yesterday was just a glimpse of what he’s capable of.
