With skipper and number one Hugo Lloris in such outstanding form this season, Michel has made six starts so far, having taken his place between the sticks for Thursday night's Europa League R32 first leg against Fiorentina in Florence.
Now Palace are his his sights. "We have a big group of players, everybody is so competitive and every game you are involved in is a joy," he said. "Playing matches is always great and the FA Cup is something special, so that only adds to the occasion.
"Hopefully we can make it through to the next round because it's a very special competition and we want to do well in it."
We take on Palace in the fifth round of the FA Cup at the Lane on Sunday, kick-off 3pm.
