Jordan Ayew Makes History as 6th Crystal Palace Player to Reach 20 Premier League Goals

Ghanaian football sensation Jordan Ayew has etched his name in Crystal Palace’s history books, becoming the sixth player for the club to reach the milestone of scoring 20 or more goals in the Premier League. Ayew’s achievement was highlighted in Thursday night’s gripping encounter against Brighton and Hove Albion at Selhurst Park, where he found the back of the net, ultimately leading to a 1-1 draw. Notably, Brighton managed to equalize after Ayew was substituted off in the 70th minute.

The 32-year-old forward has amassed a tally of 20 goals across 176 appearances for the Eagles, showcasing his prowess in front of goal while also contributing 16 assists. Ayew now joins an illustrious group of Palace goal-scorers, with the revered Wilfried Zaha, an Ivory Coast international, topping the list with an impressive 68 goals to his name. Following Zaha, Belgium’s Christian Benteke holds the second position, having netted 35 times, while Luka Milivojević follows closely with 28 goals. Chris Armstrong secures fourth place with 23 goals, and Andrew Johnson stands fifth with 21, merely one ahead of Ayew, who recently reached his 20th goal mark.

Ayew’s remarkable feat of joining the ranks of esteemed goal-scorers at Crystal Palace underscores his significance within the club’s history, solidifying his status as a pivotal figure in their Premier League campaigns.
