Carabao Cup: Jordan Ayew features in Crystal Palace's 5-4 defeat to Colchester United

​Ghana international Jordan Ayew featured for Crystal Palace as they suffered a shock defeat at the hands of Colchester United in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday evening.

Colchester have progressed to the third round after securing a 5-4 win on penalties after the game ended goalless after 90 minutes respectively. 

Noah Chilvers slotted away the decisive penalty in the shoot-out and Luke Norris, Frank Nouble, Jevani Brown and Paris Cowan-Hall also scored from the spot, after keeper Dean Gerken had made a superb save to deny Andros Townsend's opening kick.

Ayew — who earned praises from pundits and teammates for his performance in the 2-1 win over Manchester United over the weekend — came off the bench to replace Max Meyer in the 73rd minute but could not inspire his team to the next round. 

However, the Ghanaian striker was one of four Palace players who scored from the spot after Townsend has missed the first kick.
