Despite an initial struggle to penetrate Burnley’s resilient defense in the first half, Palace’s persistence paid off. The game took a dramatic turn just before halftime when Burnley’s Josh Brownhill received a straight red card for a foul on Jefferson Lerma, reducing the visitors to 10 men.

In the 68th minute, Ayew exhibited his skill with a precision cross, met by a powerful header from defender Chris Richards, breaking the deadlock. The momentum continued as substitute Matheus Franca linked up with Tyrick Mitchell, providing Ayew with an opportunity to tap in a close-range goal, extending Crystal Palace’s lead to 2-0.

The victory was sealed by Jean-Philippe Mateta, who confidently converted a penalty after Franca was fouled by Vitinho. Burnley’s late attempt at a comeback was thwarted as David Datro Fofana’s goal was ruled out for offside.
