Player to watch – Michael Olise

Palace's 22-year-old midfielder has enjoyed his best season for the club and is attracting interest from some of Europe's biggest teams, including Man Utd.

Olise took his Premier League goals tally for the season to nine goals after scoring twice against Manchester United and the French midfielder has also chipped in with four assists in this campaign.

Palace's playmaker was in fine form against United

We're backing Olise to shin against Wolves on Saturday as he will know all too well that he is in the shop window right now and that there will be some top scouts watching his final few games of the season.
