Morata eyeing EPL success to create unique history

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has set his sights on becoming the first Spaniard to win the league title in England, Italy and Spain.

The 25-year-old won the back-to-back Serie A titles with Juventus between 2014 and 2016 before helping Real Madrid end their five-year wait for the La Liga crown last term.

Now at Chelsea, the Spain international is aiming for further glory and has set his ambition of lifting the Premier League title - come the end of the season.

Nevertheless, Morata admits he has a tougher job in hand with the Blues, who are nine points adrift of leaders Manchester City after just 11 games into the campaign.

"I would never regret joining a club like Chelsea and hopefully I will be a long time at Chelsea," he is quoted as saying by Marca.

" I won in Italy, I won at Real Madrid and I felt important. Now I have a challenge ahead of me to be a champion in Spain, Italy and England.

 "One or very few Spaniards have achieved that and that is my goal. To win the Premier League and be the Spaniard that has won in three different countries."

Morata made a quick start to his Blues career netting seven goals by the end of the September. He went through a mini-scoring drought in October but managed to regain his touch with a sublime winner against Manchester United last weekend.

Chelsea have got the likes of N'Golo Kante and Danny Drinkwater back to full fitness following their respective injuries, and they will hope to go on a long winning streak to close in on the pacesetters.
