Crystal Palace: Patrick Vieira reveals plan to build winning side with Michael Olise’s return to fitness

Patrick Vieira is happy with his returning star and the team’s performance against Liverpool.

Patrick Vieira gave Michael Olise the last five minutes of the game against Liverpool and revealed the exciting winger’s return will strengthen his side.

Yesterday (Monday, August 15), Palace reminded everyone how good they are by earning an impressive point against Liverpool at Anfield.

Eberechi Eze showed his silky skills by going past two Liverpool players before setting up the brilliant Wilfried Zaha who made no mistake by finishing in style to give the Eagles the lead.

Things went from bad to worse for Liverpool who lost their striker Darwin Núñez after he appeared to headbut Palace defender Joachim Andersen before Luis Díaz equalised for the home side.

The point gained is the perfect response from Patrick Vieira’s side after they lost their first game of the season at home against Arsenal.

There was also the return to the pitch for youngster Michael Olise who was such a big part of their fine form last season.

The winger had been struggling with an ankle injury that forced him to miss the large chunk of pre-season.

But his return concidenced with the team’s first point and now his manager says things can only get better with Olise in the team.

He told the press: “We have Michael Olise coming back from injury and players who can make the difference.

“We have to keep working well like we did tonight.”

Palace looking to go places

Last season Conor Gallagher scored eight goals and was star midfielder but he has since returned to parent club Chelsea.

Eze is showing promise and is likely to benefit hugely from the absence of Gallagher even though Olise on form and firing could be a handful for opposition teams.

Those two players make for an exciting partnership.

The Eagles reached the semi-final of the FA Cup while finishing 12th on the league table.

And the target is now to to go one step further in the both the league and Cup competitions.
