Milestone for Benoit

Benoit Assou-Ekotto’s appearance in Tuesday’s defeat at Blackpool was his 100th in the Premier League for the Club.

The Cameroon international made his Premier League debut away at Bolton on the opening day of the 2006/07 season having joined from French club RC Lens that summer.

Although injury sidelined him for the second half of that first campaign, and nearly all of the following one, Benoit has been a regular fixture at left-back since the start of the 2008/09 season.

During the current campaign, the 26-year-old has started all but three of our Premier League games.

He is, however, still stuck on just the one goal for the Club – that screamer against Liverpool at the Lane on the opening day of last season.
