Jordan Ayew scored his third goal of the season as Crystal Palace came-from-behind to beat West Ham United.

The Ghanaian forward has been in an outstanding form after securing a permanent deal for Roy Hodson’s eagles after a loan spell last season. 

Eagles goalkeeper Vicente Guaita saved from West Ham’s Sebastien Haller in the first half while at the other end, Ryan Fredericks cleared off the line to deny fellow Ghanaian winger, Jeffrey Schlupp.

The Hammers took the lead nine minutes, after restart in the second half with Haller finishing past Guaita.

Dutch left-back Patrick van Aanholt pulled parity for the eagles from the penalty spot after Declan Rice was penalised for handball.

Ayew then scored to secure the three points for palace with an 87th minute strike, firing home after Martin Kelly headed down Andros Townsend’s cross.

The goal though was initially ruled out for offside but a VAR decision confirmed that the Ghanaian was onside and hence, giving Ayew his third goal of the season. 

Palace’s victory is their fourth of the season puts them fourth with 14 points, two points ahead of West Ham, who slip to seventh.
