Oliver Glasner provides Crystal Palace injury news ahead of Liverpool

Crystal Palace boss Oliver Glasner says Michael Olise is close to starting in the Premier League after returning from injury last week.

The 22-year-old made his first appearance under the former Wolfsburg boss last weekend in the 4-2 defeat at home to Manchester City.

Palace are winless against Liverpool in their last 13 outings against the Reds.

“He’s closer [to starting] than the week before,” said Glasner on the French attacker.

 “He had the whole week training with us.

“We’ve had a very good week in training, high quality and a lot of intensity, which is very important because Liverpool are maybe that team in the world that plays with the highest pressure – you never have time.

“It’s been a really good week and Michael was part of it, so he’s close to starting.”

Marc Guehi has been absent for the Austrian coach since having knee surgery on a hyper-extended knee injury he suffered in the 4-1 defeat at Brighton in early February. 

When asked if a return before the end of the season was possible for the England defender, Glasner said  “I can’t say when, but he’s working hard, we’re working hard, and of course we give our best. 

“It’s a week where we have three games, so maybe it’s the week after, but we hope, at latest, against Manchester United [on 6th May].”
