Jordan Ayew has described his stunning finish for Aston Villa in the 1-1 draw with Newcastle on Saturday as one of his best goals ever.

The 24-year-old has clearly been Villa’s breakaway performer in recent weeks as they struggle to beat the drop in the Premier League.

Ayew rescued a point for Remi Garde’s side with a spectacular strike at St. James’ Park to draw praise from the manager and the entire sporting world.

The Ghana international admits the well-controlled strike on Saturday ranks amongst his best goals thus far in his career.

“I think that was one of my best goals,” the former Olympique Marseille man said after the game.

Ayew, who has now raised his tally to four, keeps getting let down by Villa’s poor defending.

They have not won a Premier League match since the opening day as they keep shipping in goals.

Ayew, however, during this period, has recovered from a difficult start since arriving from Lorient in the summer to be the biggest performer in the side.
