He also inspired the Eagles to a comeback win in the EFL Cup game against Plymouth Argyle.

"It’s been a while – a very long time since I’ve gotten a trophy as well!" Ayew told Palace TV. "I’d just like to thank everyone – the fans, the club and the staff – for supporting me since Roy [Hodgson] has come in," he added.

"Every game I try to tell myself that I need to be efficient and make something happen. At the moment, things are going well. It's still the start of the season, there are still a lot of games to go, and hopefully it'll continue."
