JOHANN Berg Gudmundsson is hoping his first goal of the season can kickstart a scoring spree.

The Iceland winger popped up with an equaliser against Liverpool at Turf Moor, only to see Ragnar Klavan snatch victory for the Reds in added time.

While Gudmundsson was disappointed to see his goal ultimately count for nothing, he was happy to break his duck for the season and score just his second Clarets goal.

Tthe 27-year-old has been in fine form of late and now he’s ended a Burnley goal drought dating back to November 2016, Gudmundsson is keen to find the back of the net on a more regular basis, as well as continuing to provide the assists that have seen him top the creative charts for the club this season.

Asked if he hoped this strike would spark a more fruitful run in front of goal, the former Charlton man said: “I hope so. As long as I’m creating or scoring goals I’m happy to help the team. I’ve got a few assists this season, I want to keep that going as well.

“But hopefully this will kick me on with a few more goals.

“I want to score more goals, I want to create more goals as well. I’ll try my best every game I’m out there, that’s the team spirit we have.

“It felt really good because I thought that was it, but the game is 95 minutes, you need to see it out and we didn’t do that.”

The goal proved to be a bittersweet moment for Gudmundsson, as Liverpool hit a late winner.

“It’s tough to look back when we haven’t got anything from the game because I think we deserved a point, especially fighting back into the game and equalising and then not seeing the game out is tough to take,” Gudmundsson added.

“First half we created some chances and shots, they did as well, but second half it was 50/50, they scored and we played better after that, we created chances and when you score late on you want to hang on to that.

“But in this league good teams sometimes punish you.”

It was another afternoon of frustration over the festive period for Burnley, who saw three points at Old Trafford turn into one when Manchester United equalised late on, before only taking a point from Huddersfield when they had merited all three.

“We’ve played some really good football over the Christmas period,” Gudmundsson said. “I think Spurs was the only day when we didn’t play our best game, Spurs were better than us.

“At Man U you’re 2-0 up and you want to get more there, but before that you’d have taken a point away, then at Huddersfield we should definitely have won, we should have had a penalty as well, and then today we should have got a point. It’s ifs and buts.”
