Yannick Bolasie felt Palace deserved "nothing less" than to beat Watford in the Emirates FA Cup semi-final, with the Eagles' number 10 bagging the first goal at Wembley.
"Obviously I'm delighted for myself, but more importantly I'm delighted for us as a team - I think we deserved nothing less," he told Palace TV at full-time.
"For the fans especially, the way this season's been a bit of a rollercoaster, it's great to get into the final. A lovely thing for our manager as well, because he's stuck with us and all of our players."
"The manager's had a word with me and again at half-time. He's kept the confidence in me," he added.
