A number of Crystal Palace supporters have criticised Jordan Ayew’s performance against Burnley on Saturday.
After the final international break, the Eagles have returned to action, making the trip to Turf Moor for an intriguing Premier League clash.
Palace went into the game off the back of successive 2-0 wins against Manchester City and Wolves as Patrick Vieira continues to impress as manager. Burnley are not always an easy opponent, though, so the Eagles knew that a big performance was required on Saturday.
Who has been Palace's best summer signing?
It proved to be a thrilling encounter which swung one way to another, but Ayew received negative reviews from numerous Palace fans on social media. The Ghanaian was hauled off in the 58th minute and, judging by his sporadic mentions on Sky Sports‘ live match commentary, he had a rather tepid afternoon at Turf Moor.
Ayew won just one of his seven duels against Burnley, while his only shot was blocked and he failed with two of his three dribble attempts. He was also culpable of losing possession 13 times, as per SofaScore.
Palace fans react to Ayew’s performance
These Palace fans took to Twitter to react to his performance, with one angry supporter describing him as a “fool” for giving away numerous free kicks which led to goals for Burnley.
“Ayew is actually a fool man. Given away two fouls that have led to two goals; why is he here?“
“Ayew gives away so many cheap fouls man“
“Please get Ayew off and bring Olise on“
“Get Ayew off, we all know he’s useless“
“Can always count on Ayew for a pointless shanked shot“
“In other news Ayew needs to be subbed immediately“
