Jordan Ayew pips Tony Yeboah to highest EPL scorer
Crystal Palace striker Jordan Ayew has inked his name deeply in the history books becoming Ghana’s highest scorer in the English Premier League after pipping former Leeds forward Tony Yeboah.
This weekend the 28-year old found the back of the net in 2-0 victory against Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth, who are struggling to find consistency in the resumed English Premier League.
The goal marked his ninth of the campaign for the eagles helping him pip Tony Yeboah, who scored 24 goals during his three years stint with Leeds.
Jordan Ayew has come under a huge flack for his inconsistencies in the past but seems to have shaken the earlier pressure.
Top five Ghanaian scorers in the EPL history:
- Jordan Ayew – 25 goals
- Anthony Yeboah– 24 goals
- Andre Ayew – 21 goals
- Michael Essien – 17 goals
- Asamoah Gyan – 10 goals
