Ghanaian duo Jordan Ayew and Jeffery Schlupp featured for Crystal Perfect as they recorded a perfect start to the 20/21 Premier League campaign on Saturday.
The two players were handed a starting berth in Roy Hodgson’s team as they commenced the season with a 1-0 victory against Southampton.
The opening exchanges were tentative, with the south coast visitors dominating possession without troubling Palace’s well-organised defensive line at the Selhurst Park.
Jordan Ayew and Wilfried Zaha led the attack for Roy Hudson’s side in the crunchy fixture.
Ivory Coast striker Wilfried Zaha scored after 13 minutes into the game, marking his 50th league goal for the Eagles as they clinched all three important points in the matchday one fixture.
Jefferey Schlupp who ended last season with a goal against Tottenham was substituted for new signing Eberechi Eze in the 81st minute while Ayew enjoyed the entire duration of the game.
Jordan Ayew finished last season as Crytal Palace’s top striker with nine goals and will be hoping to better his impressive form in the English Premiership.
