        Crystal Palace winger out with hamstring issue

        Olise injury is ''devastating'' blow

        Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has confirmed that star winger Michael Olise has suffered a "serious" hamstring injury. 

        The Eagles were already trailing 3-0 to Brighton last weekend when Hodgson sent Olise on at half-time to try and salvage something from the game. 

        However, the 22-year-old had to be subbed within 10 minutes of coming on after sustaining the injury. 

        Speaking on the subject on Friday, Hodgson said:

        "So many things went wrong that could have gone right.

        "But we don't have hindsight and that's the problem.

        "It's devastating for him, for the club, for everybody really."

        After the match, the under-fire Hodgson defended Olise's introduction against the Seagulls saying that "everyone was quite comfortable" with the winger entering the fray.  

        "They [the medical team] told me and he told me that he was fine to be on the bench and to play in the second half. Unfortunately, I don't have a crystal ball." he said.

        "It's not easy when you've got a player like Olise on the bench to turn around and say 'just sit there'"

        Injuries have limited the former France youth international to 11 appearances this season, but he had still weighed in with six goals and three assists.

        "Michael is a quiet guy and that's another part of this situation," added Hodgson.

        "Another player might have come up and said, 'Look, I don't think it's worth it. I need a bit more time.

        "But that's not fair on him, he's just going along with what the club thinks."

        As a football fan, I'm gutted to hear about Olise's serious hamstring injury. It's always tough to see a player get injured, especially when it happens in such a crucial game. I hope he has a speedy recovery and can return to the pitch soon. It's also frustrating to hear that so many things went wrong for Palace in the game against Brighton, but that's just how football goes sometimes. I'm sure the team will bounce back and continue to fight for their place in

        As a football fan, it's heartbreaking to hear about Olise's injury. He's been such an important player for Palace this season and losing him for any amount of time will be a huge blow to the team. It's frustrating to see him get injured in a game that was already going poorly for us. Wishing him a speedy recovery and hoping he's back on the pitch soon.
