Wayne Hennessey praised his defenders after the Eagles' 2-1 win away at Stoke City.
The goalkeeper pulled off a string of superb stops for the third game running, but was quick to hail the four in front of him.
"It's part and parcel with goalkeeping," he said. "I'll always give credit to my back four, they were fantastic today, throwing their bodies on the line. I know! That was the first time. I must be doing something right to get a chant.
"It was really tough, especially in the second half I thought they pressured us well," he added. "They had a few chances, but we stayed strong and got the vital couple of goals."
