Crystal Palace’s Michael Olise receives fresh injury setback

France U21 international Micheal Olise (22) has suffered another injury setback. He is set to miss several weeks after coming off against Brighton and Hove Albion. 

It has been a nightmare season for Olise, who missed the first months of the Premier League season after suffering a muscular injury whilst on France U21 international duty in June, which sidelined him for a total of four months. After suffering a scare at the end of a 3-2 victory over Sheffield United, the attacker was nonetheless brought on against Brighton just days later. 

Having come on at half-time, Olise had to come off just 10 minutes later. Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has confirmed that Olise has suffered a “serious” hamstring injury, which according to the AFP, will rule him out for several weeks, although the Premier League club are yet to communicate a return date for the influential playmaker, who is certainly having a season to forget.
