Ghanaian international Jeffrey Schlupp is pleased with his goal against Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday.
Schlupp was a second half substitute and netted in the 78th minute as he capitalized on a defensive blunder by Ben Mee to put the ball beyond the reach of goalkeeper Nick Pope.
The Ghanaian was glad with the goal as he admits Turf Moor is a tough place to win.
“Yeah [it was the killer goal], as the game was a bit edgy [at that point]. As I said, it’s a difficult place to come and they put us under a lot of pressure but I’ve managed to come on and score which is nice for me and the team.” Schlupp stated.
“We came here with a game plan. We knew we were going to be under a lot of pressure at times. If we could ride it out we knew we’d get our chances and we’ve managed to score a couple of goals.”
The goal was Schlupp’s first in the EPL this season.
