Tomkins joy at clean sheets

Crystal Palace defender James Tomkins reckons he's now finding his best form for the club.

The ex-West Ham player has enjoyed playing alongside on-loan Liverpool star Mamadou Sakho where the duo have struck up a solid partnership at the heart of the defence.

They have helped the Eagles to successive victories over Middlesbrough and West Brom, while collecting rare clean sheets in the process.

"Mamadou has come in and he's good to play alongside because he is so chilled and calm," said Tomkins.

"He has been brilliant since he has been here and it's a joy to play with him and I am enjoying my time as we learn from each other and let's hope it can keep going.

"From a personal point of view I think I have been playing well and it's so big to be keeping clean sheets in the Premier League and it's something the manager has always been big on and he has not changed one bit.

"He is trying to keep us as solid as we can and we will always have goals in us at the other end from our front three."

Will Palace make it a third straight victory against Watford in their next game? Have a flutter over at Big Free Bet.
