Chelsea striker Aubameyang happy to be off mark; pleased for 'crazy' Gallagher goal

Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was delighted to get off the mark in victory at Crystal Palace.

Aubameyang was delighted to open his account, while also explaining how the bench reacted to Conor Gallagher's rocket, as well as reflecting on the game as a whole.

"When you are a striker, you are always looking for your first goal so to score early into my career at Chelsea is a huge relief," the striker explained to chelseafc.com.

"Thiago told me to go inside [the defender] because he thought Reece was going to play long. So I went inside, I turned my body and I used the defender a little bit to create some space and then I managed to find the corner. It was what I like to call a 'striker's finish'!

"It was a really tough game but I think we had control of things and to get the win, I think it's a great job from all the team.

"Conor's goal was crazy! All of us on the bench, we were jumping up everywhere because it was an amazing finish, a brilliant goal and we are really happy with the three points."
