Berahino celebrates 'great week' with Brom brace

West Brom striker Saido Berahino hailed a "great week" for his side after helping them wrap up a third win in eight days, but insisted the Baggies will not be getting carried away ahead of some testing-looking matches.

Berahino scored twice yesterday as West Brom followed up their wins over Tottenham and Hull with a 4-0 thrashing of Burnley at The Hawthorns.

Those three victories came after a poor start to the season and have helped West Brom climb away from trouble at the foot of the Premier League standings and progress through to the fourth round of the Capital One Cup.

However, with matches against Liverpool and Manchester United next on the fixture list, Berahino knows there is plenty of hard work ahead of them.

"It's been a great week," the England Under-21 international said.

"We've stuck together during this period and the results are now paying off but we're not going get carried away. We're gonna have to focus now on Liverpool away and make sure we get something there."

For promoted Burnley, a third defeat of the season leaves them propping up the Premier League standings with only three points from six matches.

Clarets manager Sean Dyche (right), whose side had drawn their previous three league matches, conceded it was a bad day at the office for his side.

He said: "It was a performance where we never got started and never got to grips with the game at all. It's a real low day for us performance-wise. "There is a reality to it, we've seen results like this in the Premier League and it's happened to us and it's important we grow and learn from it very very quickly."

Burnley have now gone over six and a half games since scoring their last goal. On how he will attempt to fix that problem, Dyche said: "We'll keep working on the training pitch, keeping working with the players' mentality and belief."
