Jordan Ayew and his Crystal Palace team lost their game against Manchester United on Thursday, December 2, but the Ghanaian was particularly impressive according to statistics.
Unlike the other games he’s played in this season, Jordan Ayew was extremely involved in every action, from attacking duties to defensive ones.
According to statistics from the game collected by Kingaziz.com from FotMob, the 30-year-old was the winner of the most duel (11) in the game, among players from both teams.
The Ghana Black Stars attacker, as well as winning the many duels, was the player who received the most fouls, five.
The brother of Ghana’s Black Star captain, Andre Dede Ayew, created one opportunity and made two shots on goal, however both shots missed the mark.
Jordan Ayew’s five ball recoveries, an intercepted ball and three tackles completed from three attempted tackles were impressive enough to allow manager Patrick Vieira to keep him in the game for 84 minutes.
The number seven shirt Michael Olise, who was shirted, was brought on as a player on the wing for the final 13 minutes of the match plus five minutes added time.

Jordan Ayew was voted Crystal Palace’s top player and best forward last season, but the 30-year-old hasn’t quite reached the levels of the last season during the English Premier League for Crystal Palace.
