It was the Scouser's first goal in the Premier League.
He told whufc.com: "It's what I've dreamt of since I was a little boy, scoring a goal in the Premier League, and thankfully Cheik's shot-cum-pass has fallen to me today and I've put it in the net.
"I just carried my run on, and I think Cheik's gone for the shot but luckily it fell for me. I tapped it in and I couldn't be any happier.
"We had a look at the Villa game and we deserved to win that one but couldn't score, then we had a tough one at Everton, where maybe we could have taken something from it.
"So to get back to winning ways on Saturday was great. We've got another tough game at West Brom on Tuesday and we'll be looking to bring three points back from there."
