Crystal Palace striker Jordan Ayew is suffering from a lack of confidence after missing a chance to register a potential match-winner in their Premier League draw with Brighton & Hove Albion on Monday, club manager Patrick Vieira has stated.

The Ghana international, whose last goal came in a 4-1 win over Leeds United last year, saw 86 minutes of action as The Eagles and The Seagulls settled for a 1-1 stalemate at Selhurst Park in a matchweek six fixture.

With Palace seemingly cruising to a potential 1-0 win, the forward was presented with a glorious chance to make it 2-0 after being played through on goal with the goalkeeper but his shot went wide.

“Jordan was like every other player, everybody was really disappointed not to take the three points,” Vieira said after the game.

“Obviously Jordan missing the chance was important but when he doesn’t score, especially a forward, here is a lack of confidence and self-belief.

“It is my responsibility to bring him back to what he can do and scoring goals.”

Palace broke the deadlock on the stroke of half-time when Wilfried Zaha converted a penalty.

In the fifth minute of the second half injury time and virtually the last action of the game, Brighton scored a dramatic equaliser through Neal Maupey.

Last season the goal shy, Andre Ayew scored one goal for Palace and is yet to break his duck for the club this season.
