Crystal Palace forward Jordan Ayew has expressed delight and looking forward to greater things after getting off the mark in the 2020/21 Premier League.
Ayew, who was named the best player and emerged the top scorer for the Eagles with 9 goals last season has struggled to get on the score sheet in the current campaign.
However, on Saturday he finally broke his goal duck in their 4-1 over Leeds United at Selhurst Park.
The 29-year-old received a pass from his captain, Wilfred Zaha, and placed the ball home to score his maiden goal.
After the game, he took to social media to congratulate the lads on a well-earned victory.
Three points & great team performance was the perfect response to last week’s disappointment!
Also, really happy to score my first goal of the season! Stay safe
Palace fetched the opener through Scott Dan’s header in the 12th minute before Eberechi Eze extended the hosts lead with a sumptuous free-kick in the 22nd minute.
Leeds United halved the deficit courtesy a close-range finish from Patrick Bamford five minutes later.
Roy Hodgson’s side regained their two-goal cushion following a fortunate own goal by Helder Costa on the stroke of half time.
Ayew put the icing on the cake for the London-based outfit with a low shot on the 70th-minute mark after being teed up by Wilfred Zaha.
He was replaced with Christian Benteke on the 85th minute.
The victory has pushed Palace to 6th on the standings with 13 points from 8 round of games.
