It marked his first goal for the club.
He said, "I am pleased with the win, when you play you want to score, but the crucial thing was getting the win. We are still top of the league, that was our aim today.
"It's always difficult to get that first goal but once you get it, you have greater confidence to shoot and I hope to score lots of goals for this great club. It was important for me to score today. It was a really hard-fought win because Granada played really well, they're a strong side and that's why they're second in LaLiga, but we gave our all throughout the 90 minutes and won the game. There's always room for improvement but that's three important points."
