'Benteke Watch' training pix/tweets: Christian ready for Norwich

Christian Benteke was all-smiles as he warmed up for the game with Norwich on Saturday.

Benteke wore the largest grin imaginable as he trained alongside pals Gabby Agbonlahor, Charles N'Zogbia, Yacouba Sylla, Andreas Weimann and Matt Lowton.

Check out training pictures of Benteke.

He epitomised the confident, assured and bubbly atmosphere at Bodymoor Heath on the eve of the trip to Carrow Road.

And no wonder after the mauling of the Black Cats and the positive comments posted about him on Twitter.

We asked supporters to tweet their thoughts on the man mountain's performance against the Black Cats - and it made awesome reading.

Check out the positive comments below.

Benteke is in fine form at present - as he has been for most of the campaign - but boss Paul Lambert thinks there's much more to come from the behemoth.

He told us: "Christian is loving his football at the minute, he's on the crest of a wave, he can't do anything wrong and you have spells like that in your career.

"You look at some of his performances and he's been unplayable at certain times.

"It's about doing it next year and then the next year and then the next year and then you can say he's arrived.

"But he's only a young boy who's learning his trade. He's only 22 years old.

"I think if you asked him he would tell you he's got so much to learn.

"Once he does it year after year after year then we can turn around and say we have a proper player.

"I have said it before, if Christian can keep his feet on the ground and be as humble as he is regardless of the success he has, he can be a right top player.

"He's still not the finished article by any stretch. As long as he keeps his feet on the ground and continues to be humble, then his career will start to rise."
