Jordan Ayew must use the international break to improve his Crystal Palace form

When Juan Foyth nodded home Tottenham’s winning goal over Crystal Palace on Saturday, Jordan Ayew was particularly culpable.

The Palace loanee revealed a shocking lack of effort and awareness, remaining rooted to his spot rather than challenging the Spurs defender.

Unfortunately for the Eagles, Ayew’s poor form has been a constant feature of his opening months at Selhurst Park.

Despite his poor form, Ayew received a call-up to the Ghanian national team during the international break. His inclusion in his country’s set-up was his first in over a year, granting Ayew an ideal opportunity to improve his confidence away from England.

With no goals all season for the Eagles, the attacker is desperately in need of a boost, and the international break could provide much-needed positivity for Ayew.

 

If the 27-year-old can impress in Ghana’s clash against Ethiopia, then Ayew may be able to bring his form back to SE25 two weeks later.

A change in environment and chance to shine for Ghana may be the perfect solution for Crystal Palace’s misfiring loanee to rediscover his goalscoring form.
