In a Twitter post, Ayew said: “Sadly, I have tested positive for Covid-19 & have begun my quarantine in line with the health guidance. Thankfully, I am feeling fine & do not have any symptoms

“I will be cheering the boys on from home & look forward to being back on the pitch soon.”

Palace are next in action against Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday, before the Eagles travel to face Wolves at Molineux on Friday October 30.

The draw against Brighton saw Palace remain 12th in the Premier League table, with seven points from their first five games of the season.
