Crystal Palace forward, Jordan Ayew says he hopes to continue with his impressive form as he determined of repaying the club for their faith shown in him.

The Ghanaian forward continued his impressive form the Eagles as he netted a beautiful strike to ensure a 1-0 home triumph over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Jordan was on the scoresheet as the Eagles end their 39 years winless run at Old Trafford last week.

In three matches, the 27-year-old has scored one more goal than he netted in 14 league appearances last season.

"Since I came to this football club, the staff, chairman, everyone are motivating me," Ayew said, as reported by his club's official website.

"So even if I had a difficult year last season, they still trust in me and they signed me this year.

"The thing I have to do is pay them back on the pitch and that's what I try to do. I work hard every day and now it's paying off. I hope it continues.

"It's one step at a time and we'll just continue. It's the beginning of the season and we just keep on doing the basics right and get rewarded."

Ayew beat two defenders to score Saturday's match-winner in the 73rd minute. Thirteen minutes later, the 27-year-old was substituted for Christian Benteke, much to the dismay of the many home fans at Selhurst Park.

"I don't pay attention to those things," Ayew added.

"Christian is my very good friend and obviously we all want to play.

"The manager has chosen a system where we both will come and play.

"Like I said, he's my friend - one of my very good friends - so there's no problem about that."

Ayew joined Palace on a permanent deal in July following a loan spell from Swansea City last season.

The move was widely greeted with disapproval due to his underwhelming performances last season.
