Ghanaian Forward Jordan Ayew Breaks Unwanted Record in the Premier League

  • Crystal Palace forward Jordan Ayew scored for his side against Everton at the Goodison Park on Thursday night
  • Ayew slotted home from close yards after goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was forced to parry the ball into an area in the six-yard box
  • The goal was the Ghana international's first away goal for Crystal Palace in two years

Jordan Ayew netted his first Premier League away goal for Crystal Palace FC at the Goodison Park since June 2020.

The Black Stars striker has not scored away from Selhurst Park in over two years.

On a long scoring drought running from the 2019/20 season, Ayew found the back of a net with a close-range effort in their 3-2 defeat to Everton.

Jean Philippe Mateta recorded the away side's other goal while Michael Keane, Richarlison, and Calvin Lewitt were on target for Everton.

However, the Ghana international forward turned in one of his best displays for Patrick Vieira's men, scoring his third goal of the season.

Sports Brief earlier reported that Ghana striker Jordan Ayew was on the scoresheet for Crystal Palace against relegation-threatened side Everton on Thursday evening.

The 30-year-old doubled Crystal Palace’s lead after he pounced on an error from Seamus Coleman for Everton inside the first half.

Patrick Vieira's side had opened the scoring courtesy of Jean Philippe Mateta's strike, and it wasn’t long before Ayew made it worse for Frank Lampard’s Everton side.
