London: Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert revealed on Tuesday that striker Christian Benteke will be out for around six weeks with a hip injury.

Last season's top scorer with 23 goals in all competitions, the Belgian international sustained the injury in his side's 1-0 win at Norwich City in the Premier League on Saturday.

"It is not as bad as we feared it was going to be," said Lambert. "Maybe four, five, six weeks or so."
