Chelsea striker Diego Costa has claimed that it is the eagerness to improve every day that gets him going.
Costa has played an important part in Chelsea’s emergence this season. The Spaniard has netted 13 goals so far and has led from the front to guide Chelsea to the top of the Premier League Table. The Blues are unbeaten in their last 12 games and will be facing Stoke City in the quest of a 14th League win.
The Blues failed to defend their Premier League title as they finished in a disappointing 10th position last season. Chelsea appointed Antonio Conte at the start of the season and the Italian has been very influential in their devastating form.
Costa said, “I have been better than I am now, and that gives me more motivation to try to get better.
“That’s what I will carry on doing. I don’t set myself personal targets, in terms of goals and assists. What I try to do is improve, always. If the previous campaign hasn’t been very good, or even if it has, I just try to do a better campaign than the one before. My main aspiration, and not just mine, my teammates’ too, is to conquer the title again.
“I felt we like had something to prove coming into this season. Last season we left a debt behind, so to speak. And that’s the secret to our great form this season. We owe a lot to our people and we are hoping we are going to be able to pay that back.”
