Sunderland winger Adam Johnson brands last season the worst of his career.

Johnson accepts he must start to living up to expectations.

"It's been the worst season of my career as a whole, I think," he said.

"I actually haven't been that bad on the stats side of things but performances haven't been what I've wanted.

"If you go through goals and assists, I haven't done that bad but performances have been sometimes. You look at yourself and you're honest with yourself. I think in general everything hasn't gone well.

"We've got to look forward to next season now. It's all we can do."
