Cenk Tosun describes “great feeling” after netting maiden Crystal Palace goal

BY SAM SMITH

Cenk Tosun has described the “great feeling” of scoring his first Crystal Palace goal.

The Turkey international – on loan from Everton until the end of the season – opened the scoring on his maiden start for the Eagles in their enthralling 2-2 draw against Manchester City.

Tosun headed in after Gary Cahill met James McCarthy’s corner. Sergio Aguero struck a late brace as the hosts appeared to have stolen all three points – only for Fernandinho to put through his own net as the clock ticked into added time.

“It was a great feeling to score a goal on my first start,” the 28-year-old told Palace TV.

“As a striker you need confidence and confidence comes with the goals.

“[It was] a very important point for us. I just want to say thank you to all the lads because everybody ran until the last second, even after the 2-1, nobody gave up and I think we deserved a point here.

We played a solid game today. We knew City would have more possession than us but I’m happy with the point.”

    Well done Cenk. Was always a class act for us at Everton. Sorry things didn’t work out here for him.
