Gabby Agbonlahor did much of the work on Christian Benteke’s first goal, as the Aston Villa striker was left with a fairly easy header into a gaping goal.
But the man’s towering header for No. 2 was fantastic stuff. There was serious hang time involved! And there was plenty to do on his third – even if the pressure was off by then, as the result had long since been in pocket.
Benteke’s hat trick highlighted Aston Villa’s sensational 6-1 result Monday.
Here are the young Belgian’s goals from Villa Park, where the fans are surely soaring tonight for the victory and everything it means.
