Michael Olise Motivates Crystal Palace To Win Against Spirited Millwall

Millwall was unable to beat Premier League opponents in the cup, with Jeffrey Schlupp testing George Long right after Gallagher had an effort from 20 yards go wide.

After four minutes, Huddersfield was level. Sone Aluko’s pass was stopped by a defender and he laid the ball off to Tom Cairney, who fired over from 12 yards after Afobe cut back for strike partner Tom Bradshaw.

It would not take long for the forward duo to combine to good effect again in the 17th minute and this time it produced the opener albeit with a huge helping hand from Palace.

Michael Olise’s stunning second-half performance helped Crystal Palace triumph 2-1 over Millwall to avoid an FA Cup upset.

The Lions had knocked out Everton and Leicester in previous seasons, and they were aiming for another scalp when Benik Afobe scored after just two minutes to add to the supporters’ fervor at the Den.

Patrick Vieira, a five-time FA Cup winner as a player, was on his way to an unwanted first defeat as a manager in the competition, but his 20-year-old summer signing turned the south London derby around.

The visitors got off to a great start in the first-half, with Kenwyne Jones scoring their first goal after just 10 minutes. But Atlanta United responded quickly, equalizing 13 minutes later via oluwaseun Idowu before individual brilliance from Ola Kamara and an assist from Yamil Asad helped create the opening for Julian

The Millwall fans were undeterred, and the spirits of the home side were high as they booed and repeated the gesture when Palace players came out onto the field.

Conor Gallagher and Vieira spoke about how he would put out the best team possible, and he kept his word with Conor Gallagher, who came in to help fill a squad missing three key players due to their AFCON commitments.

After 11 minutes, Gallagher was inadvertently struck in the face and required treatment.

After four minutes, Huddersfield were level. Sone Aluko’s pass was stopped by a defender and he laid the ball off to Tom Cairney, who fired over from 12 yards after Afobe cut back for strike partner Tom Bradshaw.

It would not take long for the forward duo to combine to good effect again in the 17th minute and this time it produced the opener albeit with a huge helping hand from Palace.

Bradshaw was caught by Bobo Wilson, allowing Afobe to equalise at the back post. A free-kick from a dangerous position was wasted when Jake Taylor’s high swerve was easily palmed away by Pickford.

The impact was that Palace’s goalkeeper had his hands robbed, and Afobe was there to tap into the empty goal to raise the decibel levels even higher at the Den.

Millwall’s hopes of a cup upset looked to be in doubt when they were outplayed by their Premier League opponents, with Jeffrey Schlupp testing George Long right after Gallagher had an effort from 20 yards go wide.

The first-half ended with the home team in control, with a slender advantage for the visitors. After George Saville’s tackle on Eberechi Eze was ignored by referee Anthony Taylor, manager Arsène Wenger remained extremely animated on the touchline as the second-tier club held a narrow advantage at halftime.

With their manager’s words still ringing in their ears, Palace redoubled their efforts to level the scores and it was a 20-year-old who silenced the home supporters.

Although the visitors were gaining in confidence and putting up a decent fight, it still was not enough to prevent them from being beaten. In the end, however, they were able to get back into the game with two goals after Manly’s skipper Olise escaped Gallagher’s tackle on the right and scored a goal that equalized in the 46th

The talented youngster continued to impress, as he had done throughout the campaign. Almost immediately after his earlier effort was denied by a great tip-over save from Pickford, Ryan Sessegnon came within a whisker of scoring an identical second goal for Fulham against Barnsley at Oakwell on Saturday afternoon. But this time, his shot

The ex-Reading attacker, who had curled over twice previously, did not play a role in Palace’s second goal. With 58 minutes gone, he entered the match for the third time.

The players on the Palace side celebrated in front of the home supporters, who pelted them with a number of things as a result. The away crowd also lit another smoke bomb and threw a flare onto the pitch.

After making a series of changes, Millwall sought to go into extra time but Mason Bennett’s weak effort was saved by Butland and Matt Smith’s stoppage-time header went straight at him to secure the draw.
