Palace progress at Millwall
Michael Olise inspired a Crystal Palace turnaround to spare Jack Butland’s
blushes and help the Premier League side avoid an FA Cup shock at
Former England goalkeeper Butland’s howler gifted Benik Afobe the opener
as Millwall deservedly led at the break.
Making just a third start for Patrick Vieira’s Eagles, Olise almost single-
handedly turned the game on its head from the moment he cut inside to
bend a fine strike in off the post to bring Palace level less than a minute into
the second half.
Olise curled a near-replica of that strike against the post moments later and
sent another measured narrowly over before his pinpoint centre gave
Mateta the easiest of tasks to head the visitors in front.
