The goalscoring ace bagged twenty-three goals in all competitions - nineteen in the league and four in the cups.
And he didn't even play in the final game after his harsh dismissal in the penultimate match against Chelsea.
He was, of course, chasing down Peter Withe's record of twenty goals in the top-flight, which was established in 1980-81.
Benteke didn't just score goals, though, in his debut campaign.
He led the line superbly and gave Villa a real presence up top.
Benteke came flying through the ranks at Belgian club JS Pierreuse from the tender age of six before moving to Standard Liege in 2004 and Genk in 2006.
He spent three initial years at Genk but only featured in 10 games for the club before he rejoined Standard Liege in 2008, where he scored three goals in nine appearances.
Two loan spells kickstarted Benteke's career as the striker scored nine goals in 22 games at KV Kortrijk in 2009-10 and six goals in 23 games at KV Mechelen the following season.
He returned to Genk in 2011-12 - playing against previous club Standard in his first game, which his new side won 3-0 - where he netted 16 times in 36 appearances.
Benteke's international career began at a young age for Belgium, appearing 24 times at youth level before making his senior debut in May 2010 against Bulgaria, after being picked for the squad by his coach at Kortrijk, Georges Leekens.
