Some suggest he is thriving because of the absence of departed Chelsea legend Drogba.
"Didier is not here any more so there is more responsibility for me and I'm ready for the challenge," explained Torres.
"Hopefully, everything is going to be okay and we will work hard. Now I am looking for new personal targets, which is to get as many goals as possible and, hopefully, I will score more than I did in my best season at Liverpool.
"We have the squad to do that and we have five more trophies to play for, so it could be a magic season."
