Anthony Knockaert has won the Carling Goal of the Month award for March.
"It's probably one of the best," the 27-year-old said when asked where his effort ranked among all goals scored during his career.
"I remember one against Huddersfield that was like a scorpion [kick] but I prefer this one as it was in the Premier League and it was in the derby against Palace."

Knockaert's goal secured back-to-back wins for Brighton which lifted them to 15th place in their battle to avoid relegation. They are five points clear of the bottom three ahead of Saturday's home match against AFC Bournemouth.
The Frenchman's strike, his second of the season in the Premier League, was chosen as the winner after a public vote through the Carling website?and the?Carling Tap?App, beating seven other contenders.
It is Brighton's second monthly PL award since their first season in the competition, in 2017/18, adding to Chris Hughton’s manager prize in February of last year.
