Benteke - who last week defied team orders by taking a penalty, which he missed, in a 2-2 draw against Bournemouth - scored his first goal since May to help the Eagles to a 3-0 win at the 10-man Foxes.
'It's good for him. "The day after (the penalty miss) he came in and held his hand up, he spoke to the players and myself and made the point that he would make it up to team, and that is what he has done", Hodgson said. Everyone at the club appreciated that. "Palace deserved the result, they played with desire and quality and I think we didn't deserve anything today".
Leicester failed to muster much of a response and were punished for their lacklustre approach five minutes before halftime when Benteke played in Zaha who out-foxed Ben Chilwell before drilling a low shot past Kasper Schmeichel. The Algeria winger lost possession of the ball in the build-up and his side suffered the consequences by going two-goal down.

I was leaving when he grabbed me by the arm and said "What are you doing?' I said "You told me leave, I'm leaving". Judd said, "Peter and Fran had me in - showed me all the creative, the boards, costumes, everything".
"His record at Aston Villa was one every two games, and it wouldn't surprise me if he matched that here in the remaining games of the season".
One point of frustration for Hodgson was a booking for Benteke that will rule the striker out of next weekend's huge clash with fellow strugglers Swansea City.
Nikki Haley Says Iran Is Violating UN Rules
In the weapons the US inspectors did come some USA components though they would not say exactly which components they were. Today, Nikki Haley will give a bombastic speech at the United Nations accusing Iran of arming the Houthis.
"It's three clean sheets in a row away from home which is good, and even more importantly we've cured the hoodoo of not scoring away from home", Hodgson said.
"I don't know if it is the tiredness or something but we tried to come back in the second half but I think the red card prevented us from trying other things and to get back in the game".
The midfielder had been booked for an earlier foul on Loftus-Cheek and received a second yellow card for a dive in the area.
Conor McGregor Says He'll be Returning to MMA Competition
It is probably safe to say this one won't happen, especially if this man has anything to say about it... He has not fought in the Octagon since November 2016, and he has never defended a UFC championship.
The loss ended Claude Puel's side four-match winning run, while their visitors are now unbeaten in seven matches since losing 1-0 to Tottenham Hotspur early last month, and have now moved out of the bottom three. Wilfred is crucial player for us'.
