Gylfi Sigurdsson admits he enjoyed his central role for Tottenham’s win over Crystal Palace.

Sigurdsson showed promise when he played in that role against Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon, even though he missed a second-half chance to kill the game off.

The Iceland international performed well when he moved in to a central role towards the end of last season and he is more than happy to stay there for the rest of the season.

"It was nice to play there again," Sigurdsson said following the 1-0 win.

"I enjoy playing there.

"Hopefully I'll stay there behind the striker because (Roberto) Soldado and Jermain (Defoe) are top strikers and it's good to play behind them.

"I'll play anywhere the gaffer wants me to, but that's one of my better positions, playing behind the striker. That's what I prefer."
