Tyrick Mitchell hailed the performance of Michael Olise for Crystal Palace’s FA Cup win at Millwall.
Olise was devastating going forward in the second-half, but having faced him in training all season, Mitchell was not surprised.
“He’s a top player,” Mitchell said. “You can see any time he comes on he causes problems and scores goals. I just tackle everything [in training].
“He might say otherwise, but you know the truth!”
After playing much of last season behind closed doors, Mitchell is thriving in the difficult atmospheres presented by packed stadiums.
“It’s definitely enjoyable – particularly at home,” he explained. “Playing in front of our fans is brilliant, but it is still hard at the same time. It’s much better than last season in terms of atmosphere.
“You hear it [the Millwall fans] but you just try and block it out. You don’t hear any good stuff, so you just try and block it out.
“The aim was to get through to the next round. I don’t mind [who we draw], anyone to be fair – I just want to have a good cup run.”
