When a missile is launched from the crowd, a typical player's reaction is your everyday one - duck and cover. Yannick Bolasie though, does a spinning back-heel volley.

The Crystal Palace trickster was on the receiving end of a stray bottle that was launched from the crowd in the wake of Jason Puncheon's leveller against Manchester United on Saturday evening.

But rather than simply avoid the shower of sauce, Bolasie spun around, and back-heeled it into the air. Not a bad way to celebrate.

Unfortunately for Palace, Marouane Fellaini scored what proved to be the match-winning goal late in the second half for Manchester United, sealing a 2-1 away win for Louis van Gaal's side.

Earlier in the game, Juan Mata had put United ahead from the penalty spot before Puncheon's equaliser.

Of course, it could have potentially been a much more worrying story for Bolasie if he had not seen the bottle hurtling towards him.

Let's just be thankful that he did, and managed to deal with it in his own unique style.

It's been something of a breakthrough campaign for the DR Congo international, with the winger winning praise in recent months for his part in Palace's spectacular rise under Alan Pardew.
