Van Aanholt: Unbelievable Moment For Me

25 February 2017

Patrick van Aanholt was thrilled to get his first Palace goal in the win over Middlesbrough on Saturday, and was quick to praise the fans, who were deafening throughout the clash.

"It was an unbelievable moment for me -  for myself and my teammates and for the club. It was a good three points," said the left-back, who grabbed the game's only goal.

"We were very good [defensively]. In the first half we came out and were dominant - like: "we're here to win this game" - we created a lot of chances, Christian had a couple of chances in the box and I'm very happy I scored the goal.

"We trained very hard because we didn't have a game last week and after that we got a couple of days off, because rest is also important. We came back together, worked hard in the week and that's paid off today. I think we showed everyone we were up for winning the game today and we did.

"The atmosphere was unbelievable today," he added. "It was my second home game and throughout the whole game they showed us support."
