Jeffrey Schlupp has expressed his joy after guiding 10-man Crystal Palace to victory against Bournemouth at Selhurst Park on Tuesday night.
The 27 year old climbed off the bench to score a brilliant solo goal in the 76th minute to ensure his side grabbed the maximum points.
The in-form Ghanaian weaved his way through the Bournemouth defence before tucking home a low shot.
Schlupp was also on target in his side’s 2-0 win at the weekend against Burnley.
The 27 year old has now scored in consecutive Premier League games for the first time ever (142 apps, 10 goals).
“I’m really happy getting another [goal] and it’s extra special for the team to get back-to-back wins in the Premier League,” he said in his post match interview.
“There’s nothing like Selhurst under the lights and they [the fans] are so great supporting us. We want to repay them with victories – especially at home – and I’m glad we did that today,” he added.
The win sends Palace fifth on the Premier League table, which leaves Schlupp and his teammates motivated to go for more wins as the season progresses.
“We had a rough patch before but speaking with the gaffer and everyone else, we actually thought we’d played well in those games
“We got unlucky in some of those and playing top teams, you need some luck to get some points. We started the month off well and we hope to continue that.” He concluded
