We’re not going to regurgitate all the reasons why the Christian Benteke transfer didn’t work out for us – it’s a well-trodden path.
But we will say this: The Belgian striker specialises in headers from long-balls and crosses. And our defence, umm, doesn’t.
As such, a lot of fans are pretty worried about what might be in store for us when we go up against our former striker for the first time at Selhurst Park next weekend.
Here’s what some of them have been saying on Twitter. Do you share their concerns?
Laughing until Pardew masterclass with Benteke winning header against Liverpool next week

Liverpool better bring their shooting boots next weekend, because they're definitely conceding to Benteke next weekend.

No coincidence when palace cross ball to benteke he scores and when Liverpool didn't he didn't. Now look at #thfc with soldado and jansenn

It Will be Trial by set-pieces in the next few weeks for Liverpool. We will be coming up against big physical players. In Rondon, Benteke.
