Burnley striker Chris Wood has admitted his slow start to the current Premier League campaign. The New Zealand international made this known in his latest interview monitored by Lancashire Live as he said that the goals will come for him. Wood is certain that the points will also come for Burnley who are in the bottom three on the Premier League log after a slow start to the season. The Clarets are three points off Leeds United in the last safe place on the league table with a game in hand after their home game against North London side Tottenham Hotspur scheduled for Sunday afternoon was postponed due to bad weather.

New Zealand international Wood can take inspiration from last season when he made a slow start and had just three goalsby December. He would go on to finishthe season strongly with eight goals in the last eight games to ensure Premier League safety for at least one more season. New Zealand national team star Wood is one of the most underrated strikers in the English top flight. He has scored at least ten goals in each of the last four seasons joining the likes of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane, Arsenal skipper Pierre-EmerickAubameyang, Liverpool talisman Mohamed Salah, Arsenal attacker Alexandre Lacazette, Leicester City hitman Jamie Vardy and Liverpool star Sadio Mane.

Wood recently reached a milestone of 50 goals during the home clash withCrystal Palace last weekend after he scored one of the goals as Burnley came from behind to secure a 3-3 draw with the Eagles.

The29-year-old New Zealand strikersaid that he holds himself to high standards and he would be working hard to get more goals this season. He has three goals in 13 Premier League matches this season. In total, the New Zealander has three goals in 16 games in all competitions.
