In a disappointing turn of events for Crystal Palace, an injury to Jordan Ayew overshadowed their English Premier League match against Aston Villa over the weekend.
The Ghanaian international, who has been a pivotal figure for the Eagles throughout the ongoing campaign, was regrettably forced off the field during their clash at Villa Park, which ultimately ended in a 3-1 defeat for Crystal Palace.
Ayew’s presence in the game was short-lived, lasting only 25 minutes before he had to exit.
The Ghanaian forward experienced discomfort following a knock during the match, prompting the need for a substitution. Jean-Phillipe Mateta stepped in to replace Ayew on the field.
The injury to Jordan Ayew comes as a significant setback for Crystal Palace, as he has been the club’s driving force this season.
His absence will undoubtedly be felt as the team navigates through upcoming fixtures.
The full extent of his injury is expected to be assessed and disclosed later this week.
