Arsenal fans in awe as former target inspires Premier League comeback

Michael Olise came off the bench for Crystal Palace to help them recover from 2-0 down to draw, and Arsenal fans took note of his performance.

Our club was linked with a move for the midfielder from his time with Reading, where he thoroughly impressed after making his debut as a 17 year-old.

He has now made the move to the Premier League with Patrick Vieira’s Palace, and he proved to make the difference this weekend, coming off the bench with his side trailing by two goals, and playing a key role in helping them comeback to earn the draw. Olise got on the scoresheet just eight minutes after coming off the bench in the second-half, before his team-mate Jeffrey Schlupp levelled the tie withjust under 20 minutes to run.

Some Arsenal fans took to social media to praise 19 year-old Olise’s performance.

Olise looks to have been a steal for the £8 Million reported fee(Source: BBC), and already looks fit for the Premier League, and it will be interesting to see how he develops as the season runs on.

He could well get his first Premier League start after the international break when his side face Arsenal, and we could well get a close look at exactly what he could bring should reignite our interest in him in the coming years.

        A good perf from a side which under PA is plainly improving fast and even faster in entertaining football, esp compared to the mostly boring style under Hodgeson.

        My biggest impression by a distance though was the fabulous and consistent support of their crowd which puts virtually all other crowds to shame.

        At 0-2 down the crowd were vocally and totally behind the team. At Emirates they would have been booing then!

        Best crowd pro rata, to the numbers in the stadium, in the PREM IMO.
