Crystal Palace Forward Jordan Ayew Reacts After Thiago Silva's Handball Incident During Chelsea Clash

  • Jordan Ayew was left surprised that Thiago Silva stayed on the pitch after a deliberate handball, during the Crystal Palace versus Chelsea game
  • Ghana and Crystal Palace forward Ayew provided the assist for Crystal Palace's only goal in the 2-1 defeat to Chelsea
  • Ayew was part of Ghana's team during the international break, featuring in the matches against Brazil and Nicaragua

Jordan Ayew does not understand why Thiago Silva was not red carded after handling the ball, to stop the Ghanaian forward from progressing a Crystal Palace attack.

The Crystal Palace forward had beaten the Brazilian in a one-on-one situation before Silva, who was on the floor, touched the ball to prevent Ayew from attacking.

After a Video Assistant Referee review, referee Chris Kavanagh only showed Silva a yellow card and awarded Crystal Palace a free kick.
