Crystal Palace ends winless streak with 3-1 victory over Brentford

Posted : 30 December 2023

Crystal Palace secured a crucial 3-1 victory against Brentford, marking their first win in eight games and alleviating pressure on manager Roy Hodgson. Michael Olise emerged as the star with a spectacular double, striking on both sides of halftime. His first goal responded to Keane Lewis-Potter's early opener, while his second extended the hosts' lead, showcasing his prowess.

 

The win propelled Palace past Brentford in the standings, securing the 13th position with 21 points in 20 games, while Brentford, enduring their fifth consecutive loss, slipped to 15th place with 19 points in 19 matches. Brentford had initially taken the lead within two minutes through Lewis-Potter's netted effort, though VAR confirmed it was a legitimate goal after a brief review.

 

Olise's equalizer arrived after 14 minutes, capitalizing on Jordan Ayew's setup to level the score for Palace. Before halftime, Eberechi Eze's composed finish put the hosts ahead, emphasizing Palace's growing dominance. Olise continued his brilliance in the 58th minute, netting his second goal of the match with a well-crafted shot from the edge of the box.

 

Despite Brentford's late attempts, including Neal Maupay's strike hitting the bar and a tense finish, Palace stood firm and secured a well-deserved victory, marking only their second home league win of the season.
