Ghana striker Jordan Ayew scored his first English Premier League in seven months on Saturday during Crystal Palace’s visit to Old Trafford against Manchester United.

The 27-year-old opened the scoring after 33 minutes when he profited from a flicked on header from countryman Jeffrey Schlupp who beat Lindelof in the air.

That assist put Ayew clear on goal as he controlled and kept his head on his shoulders before drilling a low one past goalkeeper David De Gea.

It was Ayew’s first league goal since 2 January, 2019 when he netted in Crystal Palace’s 2-0 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
