Posted by

Jordan Ayew’s 90th minute solo goal against West Ham in December last year has been voted as Amazon Prime Sport’s Premier league goal of the season.

After previously setting Cheikhou Kouyate up for the leveler, Jordan Ayew in the dying embers of the game maneuvered his way into the West Ham 18 yard box with a collection of skills before he calmly chipped the ball over the onrushing goalkeeper Roberto Jiménez.

Ayew’s last gasp strike earned Crystal Palace a 2-1 home triumph at Selhurst park.

“Yeah, I think it is one of the best I have scored. I want to thank God and the people who support me,” Ayew told Match of the Day after the game.

“It wasn’t always easy, but my family and my friends, this football club, because they have been behind me.

“When I had the ball I wanted to try and shoot with my left foot, I pushed it too far and tried to do everything on instinct.

“This victory is for the supporters. We don’t choose the time we want to score, it’s just when we have the opportunity.

The goal has also been nominated for Crystal Palace goal of the season.

Ayew finished the season with 9 league goals and 3 assists, making him the club’s top scorer this term.
