Jordan and Schlupp combine to sink Manchester United

Ghanaian players Jordan Ayew and Jeffrey Schlupp combined to help Crystal Palace put Manchester United to the sword on Saturday afternoon.

Schlupp assisted Ayew score as Palace stunned Manchester United 2-1 at Old Trafford to earn their first win of the new Premier League season.

Goal – AYEW
Assist – SCHLUPP

Man Utd 0-1 Crystal Palace (32 mins)

It was United’s first defeat of the season with Marcus Rashford missing a second-half penalty.

Jordan scored the opener in the first half against the run of play, latching on to Schlupp’s flick-on and coolly converting Palace’s first goal of the campaign, before the late drama.

Daniel James thought he had rescued a point for United when he curled in a delightful equaliser in the 89th minute following neat build-up from Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

Full-back Patrick van Aanholt scored in the 93rd minute, smashing in as the ball broke loose following Wilfried Zaha’s burst forward.

The goal is Ayew’s first in Premier League since 2 January 2019 when he netted in Crystal Palace’s 2-0 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
