Tottenham fans frustrated as Palace star shines at Arsenal

Michael Olise came off the bench to shine for Crystal Palace on Monday night, laying on an assist – leaving Tottenham fans frustrated on Twitter.

Olise, 19, joined Palace in the summer from Championship side Reading for a bargain fee of just £8million (BBC). It comes after impressing at Reading.

Last season, the teenager had a hand in 19 goals in 44 Championship games for the Royals. That form has continued, despite wearing a Palace shirt.

He is already showing he can do it in the Premier League. Prior to the international break, he came on to score in a 2-2 draw with Leicester.

Then, against Arsenal on Monday at The Emirates, Olise came off the bench and one of his first touches was a first-time pass into Odsonne Edouard.

What are Tottenham fans saying about Palace star Olise?

Still only a teenager, the France Under-18 international is showing enormous potential. Can he break into the starting line-up, soon?

Without a doubt. Jordan Ayew is hardly first choice, while Wilf Zaha is the first name on the team sheet when fit on the left.

An attacking three of Olise, Zaha and Ebere Eze when fit, behind either Christian Benteke or Odsonne Edouard – is an attack boasting huge danger.

The Athletic said in the summer that Spurs had been watching Olise – and now, his form for Palace is frustating Tottenham fans on Twitter.
