CHARLIE Taylor insists he's not surprised by Chris Wood's form for the Clarets this season.

Wood followed Taylor in making the switch from Leeds United in the summer with Burnley paying the Whites £20million for the left-back and centre forward.

New Zealand international Wood hasn't scored in his last four games for the club but he has already notched four Premier League goals as well as a strike against his former club in the Carabao Cup.

That is a continuation of the form he showed at Elland Road last season, when he scored 27 goals in the Championship, earning himself the club-record move to Turf Moor.

Asked if he'd been surprised by Wood's start to life with Burnley, Taylor said: "No. I genuinely did expect him to come in and hit the ground running, like he has done.

"If he gets the service he’ll put it in the back of the net. He was the best striker in the Championship last season and he’s continued that form this season."

Taylor made his first Premier League start at Brighton on Saturday and although he's had to be patient at the start of his Burnley career he is relishing being part of Sean Dyche's collective effort.

"Every day in training and round the place, they make it more of a collectiveness and a team effort rather than just the 11 that play," he said.
