The Crystal Palace star returned from injury to thrive under Oliver Glasner, but how were his goals spread during the Premier League season?

Michael Olise netted 10 Premier League goals in the 2023-24 season to help Crystal Palace to a top-half finish, the club’s best position since Alan Pardew in 2014-15. 

Olise notched those goals despite a pair of hamstring injuries that limited him to 19 appearances (14) starts in his third year in the top flight. 

The 22-year-old returned to the side in Palace's loss to Manchester City, coming off the bench in a 4-2 loss. That was the club's last defeat in 2023-24, with Glasner's men winning six and playing out one draw in their final seven games. 

Olise found the back of the net four times in the final weeks and set up three. Altogether, six of the French international’s 10 strikes were netted at Selhurst Park, with four coming on the road.

Olise netted at Luton in November, and at former clubs Man City and Chelsea in December before scoring in the penultimate weekend at Wolverhampton Wanderers. 

What comes next for Olise?

The 22-year-old signed a four-year extension to his Palace deal last summer, but his recognisable talent means the top clubs could circle this summer. 

Olise was left out of the France squad for the upcoming European Championship, opening the door to England, Nigeria’s Super Eagles and Algeria.
