Michael Olise Showed His Elite Mentality After Being Hit By A Bottle Thrown By Millwall Fans

Michael Olise showed his elite mentality in a number of ways against Millwall on Saturday.

The Crystal Palace winger was the star of the show as the Eagles came from behind in the local derby to secure passage to the fourth round.

He then turned provider for the winning goal, whipping in a delicious cross from the right for Jean-Philippe Mateta to head home.

Olise was named Man of the Match for a wondrous display but his most impressive moment was when Millwall fans threw a bottle at him while he prepared to take a corner.

The missile hit the former Reading man on the head but he responded brilliantly by kicking it away and urging the supporters to continue.

The game also courted controversy as Millwall fans booed Palace players taking the knee, a flare was thrown onto the pitch and there were homophobic chants aimed at on-loan Chelsea player Conor Gallagher.

Both managers Gary Rowett and Patrick Vieira condemned the incidents, while Millwall issued a statement confirming they would launch an investigation.

"Millwall Football Club has a zero-tolerance policy against all forms of discrimination and will investigate any incident of alleged abuse accordingly. As is club policy, any individual found guilty of discriminatory abuse is issued with an immediate lifetime ban," a club spokesperson said.

Olise signed for Palace after they activated his £8 million release clause in the summer and the former Reading man has three goals and four assists in 403 minutes of gametime.
