Wilfried Zaha has described Crystal Palace’s 3-2 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League as “amazing”.
All five goals in the encounter at Selhurst Park came in the opening 34 minutes of the match before Palace held on during the second half to record a potentially decisive three points in the club’s efforts to remain in the top flight.
Zaha scored a double during Saturday’s win over one of the team’s fiercest rivals, and the winger has acknowledged that he is “buzzing” with the result.
The 25-year-old told Sky Sports News: “It was amazing man. Just having the supporters behind us makes a massive difference in a game like this. It was a crazy game that was end-to-end at times and I’m buzzing to just get the win.
“We literally had to go back to basics in the second half as it was too open in the first half. We could score but so could they. For the last couple of weeks it’s felt harsh to lose to last minute goals so it was a case of holding on tight after the winner.
Palace now sit six points clear of the relegation zone.
