Chelsea captain John Terry set a clear target of winning the English Premier League following his side's 3-1 come-from-behind win over Burnley on Monday night. Burnley fans started dreaming of a shock win when Scott Arfield fired past Thibaut Courtois in the 14th minute, but Chelsea quickly put a dampener on the English Premier League newcomers' party.

Diego Costa marked his debut with a poacher's strike to equalise and Andre Schurrle then finished off a sublime 25-pass move to put Jose Mourinho's men ahead. Branislav Ivanovic made it 3-1 and Chelsea strolled on to victory.

"We've made some very big signings," Terry told Sky Sports 1. "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 tonight and we'll move on to the next."

Terry also hailed summer signing Cesc Fabregas, who joined the Blues from Barcelona and also made his Premier League debut for the club at Turf Moor. The former Arsenal midfielder was a key man in Chelsea's midfield, and Terry added: "Some of the movement and play for the goals was different class and Cesc was probably pick of the bunch for Schurrle. It was a tough game tonight but we saw it out in the second half."
