After playing a key role in the victory over Bournemouth on New Year’s Eve, Ghanaian attacker Jordan Ayew has earned high praise from Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira.
The Eagles easily defeated their opponent after Jordan opened the scoring at the Vitality Stadium and went on to win 2-0. The second goal for Palace came from Eberechi Eze. After the match, Vieira praised his assault, which was led by Ayew, for their resolute performance.
“We have some really nice players with a really good attitude, working hard in training. But to win football matches, you need to be a little more competitive and hopefully, that will be something we will develop quickly,” he said.
“Today, when you look at the front four, Wilfried, you look at Jordan, Michael and Ebs, everybody was committed and that is why we had a very good performance,” he added.
Ayew was scoring his first Premier League goal of the season after playing as the main attacker. The 31-year-old has mostly played on the flanks this season.
Crystal Palace will next face Tottenham Hotspurs in the English topflight league.
