Jordan Ayew’s late winner against West Ham at Selhurst Park on December 26, 2019 has been voted by the club’s supporters as the best ever goal scored at their home ground.
The Ghanaian forward set up Cheikhou Kouyate in the 68th minute to cancel Robert Snodgrass 57th minute opener before netting a beauty in what was virtually the last action of the game to secure all three points for the Eagles.
Ayew cut in from the right-wing, beat Declan Rice after which he cheekily dribbled three other West Ham players before calmly chipping the ball beyond the reach of goalkeeper Roberto Jimenez.
English soccer portal, Football.london, asked Crystal Palace to vote for the best goal they have seen at their stadium since it was built in 1924 and Ayew’s wonder goal topped it.
Ayew’s goal against West Ham in the London derby pulled 31 percent of the total votes to emerge as the winner with Darren Ambrose 37-yards stunning free kick against Aston Villa on February 14, 2010 coming second with 18 percent of the votes.
Ian Wright’s superb Volley against Brighton 21-years ago was third with 11 percent whilst Mile Jedinak goal against Liverpool in 2014 and Gareth Southgate’s solo strike against Portsmouth in 1993 all had ten percent of the votes.
The Ghanaian attacker joined Crystal Palace on a permanent deal last summer from Swansea and has been their best player so far this season netting eight English Premiership Goals.
Crystal Palace have not lost in any game that the Ghanaian striker has scored this season.
