The in-form Danish playmaker struck a beauty home to secure a crucial 1-0 victory in the 78th minute of a tough contest at Selhurst Park.
In doing so, not only did Christian move us back to within four points of Chelsea, but stretched our current run to eight straight wins in the Premier League (the second best run in our league history), took us to 74 points (our best in the Premier League era) and 22 wins (also our best in the Premier League era).
It was also our 100th goal of the season in all competitions.
