The Premier League’s youngest player to ever assist three goals from open play in a single game was Michael Olise on Sunday, April 9.
Michael Olise helped Crystal Palace come from behind to upset Leeds United 5-1 on the same day at Elland Road.
Olise set a Premier League record with three assists, according to the statistics website OPTA.
The site claims that Olise, who is 21 years old and 118 days old, made Premier League history by becoming the league’s youngest player to ever assist three goals that came from open play in a single game.
Among Premier League players aged 21 and under, only Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka (17 assists) has assisted more goals than Olise since the start of last season.
The former France Under-21 player, now age 21, has contributed eight assists and two goals so far this year.
With eight games remaining, Crystal Palace moved six points clear of the relegation zone after winning two successive games for the first time since November.
About Michael Olise
Michael Olise was born on December 12, 2021, to a French-Algerian mother and Vincent, a Nigerian, in Hammersmith, London, England.
Before beginning his professional club career with Reading in 2019, Olise trained with the youth teams of Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, and Reading. In 2021, he joined Crystal Palace.
Although he is qualified to represent England and the Super Eagles of Nigeria, he is most likely to represent France because he has experience with the national youth teams of that nation.
Richard, a football player who joined Chelsea as an Under-9, is Olise’s younger brother. Unlike the winger for Crystal Palace, Richard is a young England representative.
