Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke ruled out for at least six weeks due to knee injury

Benteke suffered ligament damage during the Eagles’ 5-0 defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

There are fears that the 26-year-old Belgium international, who underwent a scan on Monday, could miss up to two months of action due to the severity of the injury, according to the Daily Mail. 

The Eagles have limited options due to second in line Connor Wickham also being on the treatment table with an injury, which has led to reports that manager Roy Hodgson is looking at out-of-contract strikers.
