Benteke Hurt Against Norwich City

Hopefully its not too long before we see this man doing his goal celebration again. - Ross Kinnaird

Benteke injured early against Norwich City, Kozák steps up to fill void and scores a goal.

Early in the match, Christian Benteke was forced to come off.  After slipping on what the commentator called "a greasy surface," it was clear that he had hurt his leg.  When Benteke tried to hobble back on, he fell straight down to the pitch.  Obviously this is a very worrying sign to Aston Villa fans, and also anyone else who has the Belgian Beast in their Fantasy Premier League team.  Fortunately, new addition Libor Kozák scored for the traveling Villa only 5 minutes after coming on.  Benteke has been such a crucial part of this Aston Villa side since his arrival last year, scoring 23 goals in 38 Premier League games.  Fortunately Paul Lambert snapped up the Czech international Kozák on deadline day, leaving a replacement on the bench.  Kozák however is still somewhat of an unknown commodity, having only scored in the Europa League last season for Lazio.  But he was the Europa League's top scorer with 10 goals.
