JOHANN Berg Gudmundsson believes once Burnley start producing 90 minute performances that the Clarets will be back on track.

Sean Dyche’s side lost 4-2 at West Ham on Saturday, meaning they have now shipped 13 goals in three successive heavy defeats.

Burnley are now 15th in the table with just eight points from 11 games ahead of a trip to Leicester City this weekend.

The Clarets twice hauled themselves level at the London Stadium last time out but conceded twice in the final 10 minutes to slip to defeat.

But Gudmundsson, who was on target with the first equaliser against Manuel Pellegrini’s men, is confident of improvements.

“It’s still early (in the season), but it’s disappointing that you’re not playing better,” he said.

“We’re playing well in patches but not for a whole 90 minutes at the moment.

“We need to get back on the training pitch, do what we do and try and get the three points next weekend.”

Burnley’s defensive record is of particular concern with Sean Dyche’s side leaking an average of more than two goals a league game while only Fulham have conceded more than the Clarets’ 25 Premier League goals.

And while individual errors were culpable for at least one of West Ham’s goals on Saturday, Gudmundsson admits he is at a loss to explain how the Clarets have gone from durable to porous.

Asked what had changed defensively, the Iceland international said: “I’m not sure, but we’re conceding too many goals, especially compared to last season.

“I’m not too sure what the problem is, but we have to try to fix that.

“It is a worry. Normally when we defend well we score goals, but if you score two and concede four it’s not great. It’s tough.”

It was a testing afternoon in the capital for the Clarets and Gudmundsson admitted the players were frustrated to come away with nothing having twice pegged the Hammers back.

“It was tough,” he said. “We gave away a few silly goals but showed some character in coming back into it. I think we should have used the momentum better when we came back twice, but we didn’t and we got punished. That’s frustrating.

“When you come back normally the momentum is with you but we didn’t use that and that’s the disappointing part.”

On his goal, the 28-year-old added: “It was a good goal, a great ball from Westy (Ashley Westwood) and a good finish.

“I’m glad to score but it doesn’t mean anything.
