Crystal Palace: Fans buzzing over David Omilabu

Crystal Palace: Fans buzzing over David Omilabu - Crystal Palace

Plenty of Crystal Palace fans have been talking about Eagles youngster David Omilabu on social media after another starring display from the teenager over the weekend.

The 18-year-old, who signed his first professional deal at Selhurst Park last month, netted twice in the first half for the club’s under-18 side on Saturday.

How well do you know Crystal Palace’s record transfer business? First up, how much did Palace fork out for Christian Benteke in 2016? *fees from Transfermarkt*

Palace defeated Aston Villa 3-1, with Omilabu taking his Under-18 Premier League goal tally to 18 in just 16 games.

Omilabu, who plays mainly as a centre-forward but can also turn out on the wing, has scored 10 goals in his last six appearances for the Eagles’ under-18 side. He scored a hat-trick against West Ham in a 5-1 win earlier this month, and you’d expect that Roy Hodgson is well aware of his excellent form.
