John Terry eyes title as Chelsea make flying start
London: Chelsea captain John Terry set his sights on winning the Premier League after his side`s 3-1 victory in their season opener at Burnley on Monday.
Jose Mourinho`s team recovered from Scott Arfield`s 14th minute goal to sink the newly-promoted Clarets and send a warning to their title rivals.
Spain striker Diego Costa marked his debut with the equaliser and Andre Schurrle finished off a sublime 25-pass move to put the visitors ahead before Branislav Ivanovic made it three inside the first half.
"We`ve made some very big signings," Terry told Sky Sports. "Diego has come in and he was great tonight. He got on the scoresheet which is a great start for him.
"We`re hoping to win the league. That`s our target this year.
"This league is going to be really tough and we`ve seen some quality at the weekend from many teams, but importantly we picked up three points and we`ll move on to the next."
With Chelsea top of the table after the opening round of fixtures, 33-year-old Terry also saluted former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas, who joined the Blues from Barcelona in pre-season and made a sparkling debut.
"Some of the movement and play for the goals was different class and Cesc`s pass was probably pick of the bunch for Schurrle," Terry added.
"It was a tough game tonight but we saw it out in the second half."
