Daily Mirror - - W HAM V ASTRA GIURGIU - BY ADRIAN KAJUMBA

LIVER­POOL’S loss will be Crys­tal Palace’s gain ac­cord­ing to James Tomkins.

Tomkins says £32mil­lion record sign­ing Chris­tian Ben­teke, 25, can be a suc­cess at Sel­hurst Park where he will be a key part of the Ea­gles’ plans.

Hav­ing been frozen out at Liver­pool un­der Jur­gen Klopp, Ben­teke made his Palace de­but in Tues­day night’s 2-0 EFL Cup win over Black­pool and de­fender Tomkins said: “He was not in Klopp’s plans but he is cer­tainly in ours.

“He comes here with a great record in the Premier League – he did bril­liantly for Villa. He is bril­liant in the air and, if you feed him the right balls, I am sure he will score goals.”

Ben­teke was backed by Tomkins
