HISTORY: Jordan Ayew leapfrogs Anthony Yeboah to become Ghana’s top scorer in EPL

Crystal Palace frontman Jordan Ayew has overtaken Anthony Yeboah as the highest Ghanaian scorer in English Premier League.

Ayew, who has been in scintillating form for the Eagles this season, exhibited his importance for the side once again after scoring in their 2-0 win against AFC Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

Luka Milivojevic put Roy Hodgson side’s noses in front in the 12th minute with a sumptuous free-kick from the edge of the box.

Ayew handed Palace the maximum points in the 23rd minute after guiding Patrick van Aanholt’s low cross beyond goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.

The strike was the former Olympique Marseille forward’s ninth of the season.

He has now scored 25 goals in the English top-flight since signing for Aston Villa five years ago.

Ayew is now the highest Ghanaian scorer in arguably the best league in the world with 25 goals, leapfrogging Leeds United legend Anthony Yeboah to the feat.
