The striker believes his club are in good position to claim their first win of the topflight at Selhurst Park

Swansea City striker Jordan Ayew says his outfit are determined to pick three points when they face Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Jack Army are determined to come up tops away at Selhurst Park in the search for their first win of the season. 

Following Tuesday's 4-1 triumph over Milton Keynes Dons in the League Cup, the Swans are more than motivated for the matchday three action.

"That’s good because it gives us confidence for the game this weekend, which is massive for us," Ayew told his club's official website.

“It’s always important to win and we know how important Saturday is. 

"It’s not easy to win at Crystal Palace but we are not scared and we have confidence that we can go and get a result.

“It’s always good to be winning, whoever you are playing against. It keeps confidence high and we have to keep that going."

Swansea picked a point through a goalless draw at Southampton on matchday one but a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Manchester United has left the side on 15th position on the log.

“We are a young team. We are doing good things and that’s positive," Ayew said.

“It’s not easy but we are doing well. The staff are behind us, the coach is doing a wonderful job.

“We have to keep working hard and try to get better, and hopefully that will bring us three points on Saturday.”

Having scored one and set up another in the victory over Milton Keynes, Ayew will hope to open his goal account in the topflight on Saturday.

Compatriot Jeffrey Schlupp and Dutch-born defender of Ghanaian descent Timothy Fosu-Mensah will be on the opposing Palace side.
