Patrick van Aanholt pleased to prove Crystal Palace matchwinner

Patrick van Aanholt was delighted to prove Crystal Palace's matchwinner in victory over Newcastle United.

The Dutch fullback scored the only goal of the game on the day.

Speaking post-match about the importance of the game, Van Aanholt said: "Very important (match). We knew it was going to be a tough game today. We knew we needed the three points."

Van Aanholt was delighted to find the back of the net, adding: "Yeah, course I enjoyed it. It got us the winner and always nice to get on the scoresheet, especially when you get the three points."

With Luka Milivojević ill today, Van Aanholt stepped in on set-pieces and proved a more than able deputy. Discussing the moment, Van Aanholt said: "I was on set-pieces today with Luka being ill, so I stepped up.

"(On my run-up) I saw him (Dúbravka) standing to the left more so I changed my mind last minute."
