Jordan Ayew became the second player in the history of Crystal Palace to score Arsenal both home and away since John Craven did in the 1971/1972 season.

The in-form Ghanaian trequartista bailed the Eagles out of jail once more as his 54th minute goal helped Crystal Palace to wrestle for a 1-1 draw game with Arsenal at the Selhurst Park on Saturday.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang broke the deadlock for the Gunners in just 15 minutes into the game, finishing off a crafty 19 pass move by Arsenal.

But, Jordan Ayew who has not looked back since finding his form at the 2019 AFCON leveled for Crystal Palace in the 54th minute.

Cheikou Kouyate’s header found Jordan Ayew in the box who wrapped the ball with a left foot shot into the net, hitting David Luiz on its way into the post as Leno looked helpless.

Conversely, whiles Jordan Ayew received all the plaudits for his sterling performance against Arsenal in the 2019/2020 season, hitting the Gunners back-to-back, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the other hand became the third Arsenal player in history to score and be sent off in the same match.

The last Arsenal player to score and be sent off was Mikel Arteta in 2013 against Crystal Palace.

Jordan’s all important goal marks his sixth of the season.
