Hennessey Thrilled With "Really Good Win"

1 April 2017

Wayne Hennessey was delighted to see Palace come from behind to secure a massive win away at Premier League leaders Chelsea.

"Coming here and getting three points is a really good win for us, knowing that they're top of the league," he said.

The Wales international was in fine form, keeping the likes of Diego Costa and Eden Hazard at bay for over 80 minutes.

"It was a very busy afternoon and we were defending for most of it!" He admitted. "Personally it was probably my best performance for a long time, but I've got to give huge credit to the boys outfield as well, they were outstanding today. Defending starts from the front and big Christian Benteke did that.

"The manager's come in and [given us confidence], we know we're a great, solid unit. We all love each other and we're great off the pitch as well.

"We're back to old school now, defending as a unit and trying to counter attack teams. We got a couple of goals and managed to hurt them in key areas.

"Hopefully we can stay away from the relegation zone," he added, looking ahead. "We are still down there unfortunately, but hopefully we can keep creeping away from it - that's our aim."
