ASHLEY Barnes has explained his celebration for his equaliser against Everton on Saturday.

The Clarets striker latched on to Matt Lowton's through ball to fire home a leveller early in the second half, before celebrating by making what looked like a pair of binoculars with his eyes.

But the 28-year-old revealed the celebration had actually been inspired by his car share partner Ashley Westwood when he picked Barnes up on Saturday morning before heading to Turf Moor for the win over the Toffees.

"I got picked up by him on Saturday morning and I was looking and thinking ‘who is that looking through the letterbox?’," Barnes joked.

“Obviously it was little Westy, who was just the right height to look through!

“We had a little joke about it in the car, so it was good to get the celebration out there.”

Barnes twice forced Jordan Pickford into smart saves as well as scoring his sixth goal of the campaign and the 16th Premier League goal of his career.

The victory was Burnley's first since in 12 games, since beating Stoke City 1-0 in mid-December, but the striker felt the Clarets deserved to get back to winning ways.

"It was hard work, but that’s been coming for a while. We’d not won in 12 and it was good to get that win," he said.

"We knew if we could slide the balls in behind them we’d create a few chances and luckily enough it worked.

"Them the big man (Chris Wood) came up with the header at the end, but it’s not just about the scorers; the whole team worked well and that’s what we’ve done all season and we’ll continue to do."
