Yannick Bolasie has told Crystal Palace's official site that he has been disappointed with his start to the new campaign.
The winger dazzled last season, with his skill causing him to be one of the most feared wide-men in the entirety of the Premier League.
However, he has failed to carry that momentum into the 2015/16 term and, by his own admission, has been off the pace so far.
Bolasie said: "I want to replicate what i did last season, because it's been a stop-start [beginning of the season for me].
"I'm not really at the pace where I think I could be at, so it's going to take me a couple of starts to really get going - especially back out on the wing again, because I've been playing up front a lot."
Bolasie has played in six of Palace's first seven Premier League games so far, but he has been unable to make too much of an impression.
The 26-year-old is yet to hit the back of the net and he has regularly been rotated around the side, often playing as a centre-forward.
He did sign a new three-and-a-half year deal at Selhurst Park, though, and seems to be very settled with the Eagles, who are making rapid strides.
Despite Bolasie's slow start, Palace have still impressed and they are now up in sixth place in the Premier League table, having beaten Watford in their most recent outing.
