Benteke closing on Palace return
Crystal Palace could welcome key man Christian Benteke back from injury when they host Everton after the international break.
The Belgian forward hasn't featured since a 5-0 defeat to Manchester City at the end of September due to knee ligament damage.
Manager Roy Hodgson recently said he was hopeful the 26-year-old would be able to resume training during the current international break and now he has been pictured in training with the Eagles.
Benteke is understood to be training on his own at present although his workload could be increased over the coming days and he may be able to make a return when Everton visit Selhurst Park on November 18.
If that match comes too soon, Benteke should be able to feature when Palace host Stoke the following Saturday.
