Ghanaian duo Jordan Ayew and Jeffrey Schlupp both scored for Crystal Palace in their Premier League win over West Ham United at home earlier on Saturday.

Jordan scored the equaliser in the 15th minute of the game after the Hammers had taken an early lead at Selhurst Park.

The forward raced onto a pass from Michael Olise before striking his effort past the West Ham goalkeeper.

Wilfried Zaha then gave Palace the lead five minutes later with Schlupp extending the Eagles control of the game as he made it 3-1.

Despite a late revival from West Ham, they were unable to take anything from the game as Palace recorded a 4-3 victory at home.

Jordan’s goal means he has been directly involved in 50 Premier League goals, becoming the only Ghanaian to do so while he has also scored three goals in his last five games for the club having scored just once in his previous 29.
