Striker Jordan Ayew has told the Crystal Palace supporters: ‘My best is yet to come’.

The Ghana international has banged in three goals this term which has contributed to Palace’s fine start.

He only managed one goal while on loan from Swansea last season as he battled with Christian Benteke for a place in attack.

Since his £2.5m permanent move in the summer, Ayew has flourished as the team’s main forward.

And the 28-year-old says he is determined to keep working hard and impress the fans with a decent goal return.

“Every footballer thrives on confidence and for us strikers we have a duty to put the ball in the back of the net,” he told Mirror Sport.

“When you don’t do that and don’t play well, of course the fans have the right to demand more from you. Last season was not the best and I want to correct that this season.

“For me, I don’t think I have done something big yet. I just have to keep working and the goals will continue coming.

“All I want the fans to know is that I might not be like the old fashioned strikers who are big and tall, but I have some qualities that can cause problems to defenders and I am working hard to show my full potential.”
