Roberto Soldado said Sunday's 3-0 win against Stoke 'meant everything' to the team.

The striker started the ball rolling from the penalty spot in the first half as we dominated the Premier League encounter at the Lane.

Mousa Dembele fired in for 2-0 and Roberto provided the assist for Aaron Lennon’s volley to put the issue beyond doubt on 69 minutes.

Roberto’s successful spot-kick made it 10 goals in all competitions for the campaign so far as we made it seven points out of nine over the Festive period.

“It was a really important win for us because we haven’t won at home for a while,” said the Spanish international. “Of course, scoring the goal felt good and that started us off for a fantastic win.

“We were really ambitious and went at them from the first minute. That paid off. We pressed and pressed and winning the game meant everything to us.”
