Watch as Troy Deeney glances a header into the bottom corner of his own net which gifted Crystal Palace a 1-0 win over Watford on Saturday.
Deeney came into the match in terrific form. The skipper had scored more goals in his last six Premier League appearances (five) than he had in his previous 21 (four) in the competition this season, but it was down the other end that Deeney's contribution made all the difference.
As a cagey affair wore on at Selhurst Park, it had become clear that one goal would likely secure victory for either team, and almost immediately afterwards Wilfried Zaha took advantage of space on the left to make ground until being brought down by Miguel Britos.
From the resultant 69th-minute free-kick, Yohan Cabaye sent an inswinging cross into the area, and at the near post - despite little pressure - Watford captain Deeney sent a powerful header beyond goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes' dive, beating him on his right.
