The younger brother of Ghana Black Star's captain, Andre Dede Ayew, created one chance and had two attempts at goal, albeit both shots were off target.

Jordan Ayew's effort of five ball recoveries, one intercepted ball, and three completed tackles out of three attempted tackles was good enough for manager Patrick Vieira to keep him on the pitch for 84 minutes.

Number seven shirted, Michael Olise, came on for the winger for the remaining 13 minutes of the game plus the five minutes of added time.

Jordan Ayew was voted Crystal Palace's best player and best forward awards last season but the 30 years old has not quite hit the heights of last season yet in the English Premier League for Crystal Palace.
