Ayew makes Premier League history

English Premier League

Ghana striker Jordan Ayew made Premier League history when he netted for Crystal Palace in their 2-0 win over AFC Bournemouth on Saturday.

Ayew, 28, netted his ninth goal of the season to help Palace move into ninth and just four points off fifth-placed Manchester United with eight rounds of fixtures remaining.

However, his 23rd-minute strike proved much more significant than helping Roy Hodgson's side to three points as he moved ahead of legendary compatriot Tony Yeboah as the highest-scoring Ghanian in the league's history.

With 25 goals achieved in 129 matches, he surpassed the former Leeds United star, who scored 24 in 47 games, whilst he's now also on course to break a club record held by Andy Johnson.

Ayew's goals have directly contributed to 14 points for the London-based side this season, leaving him just one point behind Johnson's record, which he achieved in the 2004/05 season.
