Benteke came off the bench and scored a goal and tallied an assist in Saturday's 3-1 victory over Chelsea.

Benteke came on in the 64th minute and wasted little time in making an impact. He provided a perfect feed to Coutinho for his second goal of the game in the 74th minute and scored a goal in the 83rd minute. The 24-year-old has now scored in both of his bench appearances after coming back from the knee injury that's plagued him in the early part of the season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke (knee) is on the bench Saturday against Chelsea.

Benteke was questionable for the match because of a knee issue but he was passed fit Friday. It's a bit surprising that he's not starting, however, as Daniel Sturridge (knee), Danny Ings (knee) and Divock Origi are out Saturday, leaving Roberto Firmino to start up front.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke (knee) has been deemed fit to face Chelsea on Saturday.

Benteke was held out of the midweek Capital One Cup match against Bournemouth after picking up the minor knee injury in training, but he'll likely slot right back into the starting lineup given Divock Origi's struggles there and Daniel Sturridge's knee injury.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke will not play in Wednesday's Capital One Cup match against Bournemouth because of knee pain, and he could miss Saturday's Premier League match against Chelsea, the Liverpool Echo reports.

With Daniel Sturridge batting a knee injury of his own, Divock Origi could be the only healthy striker for the Reds at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke came off the bench at half time and scored a goal on two shots in manager Jurgen Klopp Premier League home debut draw with Southampton on Sunday.

Benteke was kept on the bench again but a disappointing Divock Origi forced his early introduction. The sub paid off as the Belgian blasted in the net a merciless header off James Milner deep cross. That goal and a horrendous Chelsea defense should make Benteke an appealing choice for next week.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke(hamstring) was introduced in the 63-rd minute of play managing to hit the post and adding five more shots on goal in the Europa League draw with Rubin on Thursday.

Benteke returned from his hamstring injury and was pretty busy for the little time he played, on a night where Liverpool unleashed 35 total shots on goal. With Divock Origi not impressive, the new management would be more than happy to welcome his fellow Belgian forward back in the team. Keep an eye on Benteke’s fitness over the next few days but the striker should slot right back in the starting XI as soon as possible.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke (hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Spurs, but he could return Oct. 25 against Southampton, ESPN FC reports.

Benteke hasn't been able to return to training due to the ailment, which is why he's already been ruled out. With Danny Ings ruled out for the rest of the season because of a torn ACL, the Reds will rely on Daniel Sturridge to lead the line, though he's had his fair share of injuries issues throughout his career.

October 14, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke (hamstring) is unlikely to face Spurs on Saturday, as he has yet to return to full team training, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Benteke has already missed four matches due to the ailment suffered back on Sept. 20 against Norwich, and he was unable to play for Belgium over the international break. With this weekend's game looking very unlikely, Benteke's next opportunity to return will come Oct. 25 against Southampton. Danny Ings has been filling in for Benteke, but with new manager Jurgen Klopp traditionally using a one forward set, it's unclear if Ings will stay up front with Daniel Sturridge.
