The Eagles say work is being done on the Ghanaian and other strikers ahead of the Gunners' visit

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson says he is working on Ghana striker Jordan Ayew as well as other forwards in the team as he hopes to end their poor run in the Premier League when they host Arsenal at the Selhurst Park on Sunday. 
Ayew has been struggling for goals since joining the Eagles on loan from Swansea City in August. Crystal Palace have picked just one win in their last five games.
Arsenal, on the other hand, have been displaying a splendid form under Unai Emery, as they sit fourth on the log and in search of a 12th straight win in all competitions.  
“We’re interested really in working hard with the forwards we have. We have Connor, we have Alex Sorloth, of course there’s Wilf (Zaha) and there’s Jordan Ayew and there’s Sullay Kaikai," Hodgson told his club's website.
"Now, there’s five players, all of whom are capable of playing in forward positions and that’s not counting Andros (Townsend) who did it well at Everton
"So we have players already in our group that we’re working with to try and get those goals that we need [against Arsenal]," he added.
Ayew was an unused substitute last weekend when Palace got beaten 2-0 by Everton at Goodison Park.
