Sunderland winger Adam Johnson hopes to build on his stunning hat-trick against Fulham.

Johnson has been scratching around for form for much of the season.

"Every player will tell you there's times when things just don't go for you," said Johnson. "But just because players lose form, you don't turn into a bad player.

"Hopefully now it's a new year, a new start. I just said to myself, 'Let's get back to my old ways, this is a new year and everything else has gone'."
