Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has lauded striker Jordan Ayew his outstanding display in the 2-1 win against Brighton.
Ayew undoubtedly played his best game of the season in the Eagles’ hard-fought win at Brighton Hove and Albion in the Premier League on Monday night.
Jean-Philippe Mateta shot Palace ahead before the break. The former Mainz 05 forward was incredibly set up by Jordan Ayew who was on fire throughout the full 90 minutes.
Joel Veltman equalised for Brighton after 55 minutes in the second half.
However, substitute Christian Benteke struck a stunning volley in stoppage time to clinch all three points for Crystal Palace.
Palace gaffer Roy Hodgson elated with the performance Ayew put up at the AMEX Stadium.
“He was outstanding. Behind both goals. First was a wonderful pass from Kouyate, he did incredibly to hold off the challenge. And then running out in the last minute, giving Andros the chance to create. And his defensive work was great. It had to be. We had to be 100% certain around the penalty area to keep them out. We’re obviously very pleased,” Hodgson said after the match.
The Black Stars striker has assisted three times and netted one goal in 21 league appearances for Crystal Palace in the ongoing season.
