Saido Berahino finally scores a goal and it was as jammy

Nine hundred and thirteen days.

That’s how long Saido Berahino had gone since his last goal – West Brom’s third in a 3-2 win over Crystal Palace in February 2016.

But on Tuesday night, the 25-year-old finally ended his goal drought, bringing to an end a run of 48 matches without finding the back of the net.

Now with Stoke, the club he left West Brom for in January 2017, Berahino headed home the opening goal of the night as the Potters hosted Huddersfield Town in the Carabao Cup.

It’s fair to say the goal had an element of luck to it: James McClean’s shot rebounding off the frame of the goal and on to the striker’s head. His header looped up into the air, and just about crossed the line before a defender could intervene…

Not that Berahino will mind too much. This one has been a long, long time coming.
