Ghanaian forward among top 20 dirty Premier League players

Aston Villa forward Jordan Ayew has committed more fouls in the Premier League than any Ghanaian playing English topflight football

Jordan Ayew is the best striker for Aston Villa this season. Fact. The Ghanaian forward has scored five goals in 25 appearances since joining the English Premier League club. Per the statistics, Jordan Ayew leads all his teammates in finding the back of the net this season.

Statistics from the English Premier League’s official website also shows that Jordan Ayew is part of the top 20 dirty players in English topflight this season. The former Olympique Marseille and FC Lorient player has committed 35 fouls in the Premier League and comes in 12th position on the top 20 players tough tacklers list.

Jordan is however not leading this foul list at his Aston Villa. Senegal international and Villa midfielder Idrissa Gueye leads Jordan in this regard and is second on the top 20 list having committed 45 fouls this season.

Jordan Ayew is currently serving a three-game ban for a red card received in the game against West Ham United last week. The Ghana international elbowed West Ham United’s Aaron Crisswell in the game, an offence that has seen the Black Stars midfielder has apologized to his manager Remi Garde and the general public.
