Many Crystal Palace supporters have been raving over the performance of summer signing Michael Olise after he came off the bench and scored his first goal for the club on Sunday.
After only appearing for four minutes against Tottenham and eight against Liverpool, the 19-year-old was handed a prolonged chance to impress as the Eagles fought back from two goals down to secure a 2-2 draw against Leicester.
The French midfielder replaced Jordan Ayew after 53 minutes and made an instant impact as his volley past Kasper Schmeichel halved the deficit on the hour mark, before Jeffrey Schlupp later scored 48 seconds after coming off the bench to rescue a point for Patrick Viera’s side.
In his 37 minutes against the Foxes, the former Reading man completed 14 of his 17 passes and won three of his four duels. Olise’s first goal since the last day of the 2020/21 Championship season for Reading has left many Palace fans raving and they are now calling for him to start the next game as he still awaits his full Eagles debut.
