Scott Sinclair believes he has proven a point to Chelsea after an excellent season so far following his permanent move to Swansea City.
The young winger scored his 20th and 21st goals of the season on Saturday to help us beat Leeds United and he's now aiming for 30 goals and to win the golden boot award in the Championship this year.
The 21 year-old was always going to find it difficult at Premier League side Chelsea with such vast experience and quality at Stamford Bridge. He's had a number of loan spells but it's always difficult to find consistency when you're moving quickly from club to club.
Both his manager Brendan Rodgers and himself has said that the key to his goalscoring success this season is finally finding somewhere permanent - a club where he's playing football week in week out.
'The gaffer has given me confidence and I know I can just perform,'
'He was part of the decision to come here because he knew how I played and how I worked which is a help.
'I just needed the chance and the confidence. I'd been on loan to a few places but I was low on confidence because you know you're not going to be there for the rest of the season and things are up in the air.
'But I'm focused now, I know where I am and where I'm heading.
'I think I've made a point to Chelsea. Deep, deep down, without being big-headed, I thought I could have made it there and that I was good enough to be a Chelsea player.'
Sinclair is now aiming for 30 goals after passing the 20-mark at the weekend:
'It's nice to get to the 20-goal mark. What about 30? We'll see how it goes. There are still 12 games left but if I can keep putting the chances away I'll be happy.
'It's been a great season so far. Everything's worked out well so far and if we can finish it then great.
'The golden boot would be very nice. The main priority is to get promoted but to be top scorer would be the best season for me.'
