Martinez has taken note of Benteke

Everton manager Roberto Martinez is learning more about Belgian strikers every day working with on-loan Romelu Lukaku and so he is rightly wary of another in Aston Villa's Christian Benteke.

I think he [Benteke] has been an impressive signing.

Looking at his contribution last season it was more than significant in Villa's record in the league and you can see what he brings to the crowd and what he means to everyone at Villa.

Clearly Villa with Benteke on the pitch is a bigger threat and we will have to be very wary of that.
