Eze hails ‘incredible’ Crystal Palace youngster following Brentford win

Eberechi Eze says it’s good to play with an “incredible player” like Michael Olise after the youngster steered Crystal Palace to victory over Brentford. 

The Bees took an early lead through Keane Lewis-Potter, but Olise hit back with an equaliser in the 14th minute.

The 22-year-old provided the assist for Eze to put the Eagles in front ahead of the break before scoring his second of the day in the second half.

The 3-1 win is Palace’s first Premier League victory in almost two months. “It has been a long time coming,” Eze told Premier League Productions.

“We’ve put in some good performances but haven’t got the results. We know what we’re capable of, especially at home. It’s a good result.

“Michael Olise’s an incredible player, it’s good to play with players like that on the same wavelength.

“We know what we’re capable of, we can create chances, it just hasn’t clicked. It showed today and it’s a good result.”

The south London outfit don’t play again in the Premier League until January 20 when they face Arsenal. Next up they host Everton in the third round of the FA Cup next Thursday.
