Jordan Ayew played from start to finish but had no say in the goals as Crystal Palace played out a 0-0 draw with Watford in the Premier League on Saturday.
The Eagles came into the game on the back of consecutive wins against Burnley and Bournemouth with Ayew’s Ghanaian teammate Jeffrey Schlupp and Ivorian Wilfried Zaha staring in them.
There was however none of that in Hertfordshire, with the Eagles succeeding in preventing the Hornets from defeating them in four consecutive competitive meetings for the first time ever.
Ayew – who has now gone five matches and over a month without a league goal, had one shot off target, 42 touches, 18 accurate passes (85%) and also won eight of 10 ground duels.
Palace have failed to close in on the top six in the Premier League table and remain eighth.
