Scott Dann made his third start and fourth Premier League appearance of the season today and helped marshall the Eagles rear-guard for the opening hour until an injury forced him to come off.
Speaking post-match, Dann downplayed his assist for Wilfried Zaha's opener and provided an injury update: "To be honest, I remember playing it out wide but my ankle was a bit sore so I was on the floor and didn’t actually see him score the goal – he probably beat five men and scored!
"I haven’t played much football of late, obviously I’ve been fit but the lads have been doing a good job and I’ve had to wait for my chance. It was nice to come back and contribute today.
"I’m hoping it's not [anything serious]. I got a whack early on from a tackle and it seemed to be getting better until half-time but it stiffened up and I couldn’t really move as I needed to. I got as much as could’ve out of the game."
