Schlupp delighted with goal in ‘massive’ win over Burnley

Jeffrey Schlupp has hailed Crystal Palace performance after their 2-0 win against Burnley on Saturday.

“It’s massive. Every win in this league is obviously massive. You know it’s not a secret that we haven’t been getting the results or points that we want of late. But we’ve come here, to a difficult place, and they’ve been in top form, and we’ve won,” Schlupp said in his post-match reaction.

The Ghanaian international climbed off the bench to put the seal on a convincing victory after Wilfred Zaha had shot the Eagles in front on the stroke of half time.

The 78th minute strike was Schlupp’s first goal of the season in 12 appearances for the club this term.

“Yeah [it was the killer goal], as the game was a bit edgy [at that point]. Like I said, it’s a difficult place to come and they put us under a lot of pressure but I’ve managed to come on and score which is nice for me and the team.

“We came here with a gameplan. We knew we were going to be under a lot of pressure at times. If we could ride it out we knew we’d get our chances and we’ve managed to score a couple of goals.”

Saturday’s win has lifted Palace to 10th on the league table.
