Jordan Ayew shatters 39-year record at Old Trafford with Crystal Palace opener

Two Ghana internationals were involved in the goal which put the Eagles ahead in Manchester
Jordan Ayew gave Crystal Palace their first lead against Manchester United in a Premier League fixture at Old Trafford as the Eagles went on to secure a 2-1 victory.

Ayew fired Roy Hodgson's men ahead in the 32nd minute after linking up with compatriot Jeffrey Schlupp's header.

The goal ended the Eagles' abysmal 39-year run without a lead at Old Trafford, with David Swindlehurst last managing the feat in 1979.
