Jordan Ayew, the adept Ghanaian forward, orchestrated a splendid display that propelled Crystal Palace to a pivotal triumph over Manchester United in the English Premier League on a Saturday afternoon. The luminary of the Black Stars orchestrated the pivotal free-kick that paved the way for Joachim Andersen’s decisive strike at the hallowed grounds of Old Trafford.
Ayew also outshone the Moroccan maestro, Sofyan Amrabat, who was deployed in an unfamiliar left-back role for Manchester United. It was Amrabat who transgressed, conceding the foul that granted Palace the advantageous set-piece opportunity, as he recklessly dispossessed Ayew of the ball in the 25th minute. The indomitable Ghanaian international persevered throughout the entire duration, ensuring that Palace exacted revenge for their EFL Cup setback just three days prior on the same hallowed grounds.
Ayew has undeniably emerged as the linchpin for Crystal Palace in this campaign, meriting the coveted Player of the Month accolade for August. Over the course of this season, he has delivered two astute assists in seven English Premier League encounters, complemented by one in the Carabao Cup.
