3 points – I’ll take them.
But as for the furore from Lambert – Firstly, Benteke was looking for it. Him & Brani were at it all evening, and Beneteke was looking for it – watch it again.
As for the handball – Agbonlahor was all over Terry, preventing him from jumping. It was a foul on Terry. And, at the same time, Benteke was busy pushing everyone out the way in the box.
Having said all that – I’d have Beneteke up front for us any day.
We were a little lucky that Villa didn’t have their finishing boots on, though, as they could’ve done what they did to Arse[nal]. Yes, that same game where they got a penalty that wasn’t and were lucky to see a 2nd yellow for Arse player and lucky not to see a 2nd yellow for their own player. Swings & roundbaouts, Mr Lambert, and don’t forget the Agbon foul on Terry before he headed to Terry’s arm – 18 inches away from his head when he headed it.
I will add that we did ride our luck in the 2nd half, but Villa didn’t come in our half in the 1st half until the 3rd minute of injury time (Benteke scored!).
And say again that I’d like Benteke in a Chelsea shirt. How about a part-ex with Ba?!
