Crystal Palace handed Michael Olise boost ahead of Chelsea


Crystal Palace look set to be handed a boost on the personnel front ahead of their upcoming FA Cup clash with Chelsea.

The Eagles have made it to the final four of the FA Cup for the first time since all the way back in 1995 after smashing Everton 3-0 in the quarter-finals last month.

And whilst Palace are certainly underdogs heading into the game, they will likely fancy their chances of getting a result as, this season, they have already beaten and drawn with Manchester City, before most recently hammering Arsenal 3-0.

It also looks as though Palace will be able to call upon Michael Olise for the match. Olise has been a valuable member of the capital outfit's side this term, especially in the FA Cup where he has scored two and assisted three in four appearances.

However, he missed the club's 3-0 win over Arsenal after withdrawing from France's under-21 squad due to inflammation in his left foot last month.

Now, though, as per the Evening Standard, Crystal Palace are hopeful that Olise will be fit for next Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea.

Leicester City vs Crystal Palace

Before facing Chelsea, Palace will have to turn their attention towards the Premier League.

Patrick Vieira’s side are set to face off with Leicester City on Sunday at 2 pm UK time.

Palace head into the game on a fine run of form that currently sees them sitting 9th in the English top-flight, whilst opponents Leicester have climbed up to 10th.
