Jordan Ayew claimed his first Premier League goal since scoring for Swansea against Everton in April 2018.
The Ghana international forward picked the perfect time for his first goal since joining from Swansea in the summer, producing a rare moment of quality with his first touch as Palace’s late pressure was rewarded against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson was full of praises for the former Olympique de Marseille striker: “I thought we were the team pushing for the goal and when we eventually got it I think we can say we deserved it.
“Jordan worked so hard and it was fitting he could score the goal that has eluded him and us for so long. I’m really pleased with the performance, the discipline and I’m delighted to win a game away from home because it makes the Christmas period quite a good one for us.” he is quoted by the BBC.
