Ghana international forward Jordan Ayew exclaimed that the fans are yet to see more after he scored for Crystal Palace in their 2-1 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Ayew found the back of the net for his side through Jeffrey Schlupp’s assist to put Palace ahead of United in the first half.

“I’m a striker, so I’m happy to score; we are all together, me and Christian, it’s a good competition [between us],” he said in a post-match interview.

“To come back and score a goal is a good thing for me, but like I said it was to do with teamwork. Got to congratulate the guys for the three points.

The 27-year-old who was on loan at Swansea City signed a permanent deal and has truly become a fan-favourite as he went on to win the Etoro Man of the Match accolade for his exploits.

“It’s nice to hear [the fans sing my name during the game; I’ll keep working hard and hopefully it’s just the beginning to come from me.”
