Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to lambast lumbering striker Christian Benteke for his largely ineffective first half display against West Ham United.
Benteke is a waste of time #LFC

The £32m summer arrival from Aston Villa has scored the winners in the last two of his games against Leicester City and Sunderland, though has failed to truly convince he fits the Reds’ ethos.
Benteke doesn't suit us at all. Cant see a future for him at LFC. Good player, but ruins our play

The towering Belgian striker has not been involved in much of the game so far, totally miskicking a chance created for him inside the penalty box.
Moreno finds Benteke with a good cut back but he slices the shot horribly.

He miscued his shot after Alberto Moreno had dragged the ball the back for him within relatively close range and watched his effort dribble wide, eliminating all danger to the Hammers’ goal.
Has Benteke won a header yet? #LFC

In the absence of Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi, the Belgium international looks increasingly isolated leading the line for the Merseyside giants.
Andy Carroll > Benteke

In fact, a cheeky fan has already predicted the 25-year old’s next move!
