Manager of Crystal Palace, Roy Hodgson, is ready to offer more game time to his Ghanaian striker, Jordan Ayew, after his impressive game against Manchester United.

The 72-year-old manager was excited by Jordan’s contribution during their 2-1 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The 27-year-old striker, who made his loan move from Swansea City to Palace permanent this season, got the opener for his side in the first half to help Palace secured their first ever victory over Manchester United.

"I’d like to think we’ll see a lot more from him. I think he was unlucky to lose his place against Sheffield United," Hodgson said. "There was no doubt in my mind I was going to bring him back for this game."

Hodgson said following their performance against Sheffield United in the previous game he was convinced that his side could do just anything.

"It’s football. I think I said after the Sheffield United performance that we know that we are capable of doing.

"I deal with human beings, I don’t deal with robots and sometimes they don’t live up to their level of performance. Training this weekend has been good and I think I can be happy now we were back on track for this game."
