Alvaro Morata has set a target of 30 goals for Chelsea this season as he hopes to contribute to the team success on all fronts.
Morata had a turbulent debut season after making the switch from Real Madrid in what most Chelsea fans thought was a shrewd acquisition in the transfer market.
The former Juve man experienced a season of mixed fortunes in his first spell at the club as he went on both a good and barren spell for the Londoners.
Morata was a subject of transfer speculation when the Blues were linked with Higuain, while he was linked to a return to the Serie A.
However, Morata remained in the capital and was back on the scoresheet in Saturday’s 3-2 win over Arsenal.
Now after getting off the mark for the new campaign, the striker believes he will continue to find the net in Maurizio Sarri’s system after blaming Antonio Conte’s “direct” style for his struggles last campaign.
“I think for me the most important thing is the mode we play,” the striker told Chelsea’s official website. “Last year it was direct, I had to protect the ball in the air, and that’s not my best quality.
“Now I can attack the spaces, play one-touch and go into the area for the crosses which is better for me.
“The manager works with the ball always, and when you work with the ball you have more chances, and the strikers have more chances, but that’s not the most important thing.
“For sure I want to score more than 30 goals, but I would prefer to score 15 or 20 and for us to win the Premier League or another big trophy.
