Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie became a Premier League footballer over the summer as he helped the Eagles seal a place in the top-flight of English football.

The 24-year-old, who played a major role in Crystal Palace's 2012/13 playoff winning campaign, has played seven games for the Eagles so far this season.

The Congolese winger is a fans' favourite at Selhurst Park - due to the entertainment value, commitment and passion he brings to the south London outfit.

We caught up with Yannick to discuss what he hoped to achieve in 2014 and to find out how he coped with playing football over the Christmas period.
