Michael Olise scored twice on Monday as Crystal Palace demolished a dismal Manchester United 4-0 to dent the Red Devils’ chance of playing in Europe.

Olise opened the scoring for Palace 12 minutes into the game. He wove his way past opponents, and he unleashed a magnificent effort from the edge of the box into the bottom right corner.

Palace doubled their lead in the 40th minute after Chris Richards slipped a clever pass through to Jean-Philippe Mateta, who moved inside the box and sent a measured shot beyond the keeper and into the roof of the net.

Shortly after the restart, Eberechi Eze was free in the box and Olise found him with a pass, but his powerful shot skimmed just past the right post.

A minute later, Andre Onana pulled off a great save to deny Tyrick Mitchell, who made himself some space inside the box and unleashed a quick shot to the left side of the goal.

Palace made it 3-0 in the 58th minute. Tyrick Mitchell reacted quickly in the penalty area and scored with aplomb, giving the goalkeeper no chance.

Palace completed the debacle of United in the 66th minute. Olise neatly controlled a decent pass from Daniel Munoz. He looked up and smashed an unstoppable drive into the roof of the net from the edge of the box to make it 4-0.
