Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson praised Ghanaian striker Jordan Ayew’s performance against Fulham on Saturday. 

Ayew could not end his run of five games without a goal but he was instrumental in Palace’s 2-0 victory.

After the game, Hodgson labelled him as a ‘superhuman’. The 27-year-old played the entire 90 minutes and was a constant threat to the Cottager’s defence, especially in the second half. 

“For Ayew on all-round performance, it was his best. His work rate and efforts in the game at Southampton in midweek was fantastic,” Hodgson said. 

“In this game again, you see the man has superhuman powers in terms of the effort he puts in. Today I thought he succeeded with the ball as well. 

“It was an incredible impact from him and also from Michy. The assist was good. We think he will be of enormous value to us in our attempts to stay in the league.” 

A goal in either half from captain Luka Milivojevic and Jeffery Schlupp saw the Eagles move further away from the relegation zone.
