Dominic Calvert-Lewin on his goal against Leicester:
“The goal was great for my confidence, personally. Even last week [against Newcastle], although the goal didn’t count, to be getting back into those areas and getting the ball to hit the back of the net again, it has been great.
It’s been a while since I last took a penalty, and I didn’t put that one away so that was a monkey off my back. I’ve not been able to go over to the fans for a while at a packed-out away end. It’s what I do it for, it’s what I love, it’s why I play football and to put one in the back of the net and be able to run over to the fans it’s what I’ve dreamed of for so long. It was a great feeling.”
