Football enthusiasts on social media think Jordan Ayew was lucky to escape a VAR review for a possible red card in Crystal Palace's 1-0 defeat to Burnley.

Ayew was caught to have jabbed Josh Brownhill's face in the second half of Monday's encounter but he was cleared by the Video Assistant Referee after a lengthy review of his action.

A 62nd-minute header from Ben Mee sealed a crucial away win for Burnley in south London but the Ghana international's action has got fans talking on Twitter.

Ayew has now failed to score in two Premier League games after scoring three in a row previously. Palace have also failed to win two straight matches after going on a four-game winning streak. 

Roy Hodgson's men maintain 11th position on the table with 42 points, 15 clear of the relegation zone.
