Black Stars striker, Jordan Ayew, scored his fourth goal of the Premier League season as Crystal Palace came from 2-0 down to snatch a point at Arsenal.

The forward pounced on a cross by James McArthur which wasn’t dealt with by Arsenal defender David Luiz, and headed home.

That strike means Jordan Ayew has now scored four times in nine Premier League appearances this season.

The game appeared to be over for Palace in the first half as goals from Sokratis and David Luiz gave Arsenal a two-nil lead.

However, the Eagles were awarded a penalty after a VAR Review with, Zaha’s initial yellow card for diving overturned by the referee.

Luka Milivojevic stepped up and slotted home from the spot as Palace halved the deficit before the break.

Palace were level six minutes into the second half, with Jordan Ayew heading home from McArthur’s cross.

Arsenal thought they  had got a late goal when Sokratis found the net but it was ruled out after a VAR Review.

With neither side able to find a winner, the game ended 2-2, a result which the Gunners will see as two points dropped.

Jordan’s last goal for Palace was another crucial one as he found the net late on against West Ham United.

The result keeps Crystal Palace in sixth place, just one point below Arsenal in fifth.
