Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter to react after The Telegraph provided an update on Michael Olise’s fitness.

As a result, the teenager hasn’t featured in any of Crystal Palace’s pre-season games, as he continues to recover from the back issue.

Now, The Telegraph have given an update.

It’s written that Olise will be assessed ahead of the trip to Chelsea on August 14th, but he is viewed as someone who can provide the spark in Eberechi Eze’s absence.

A big relief

However, the fact he will be assessed ahead of the Chelsea game suggests Crystal Palace believe he has a chance of featuring, which is good news.

Why else would he be assessed?
