Brazilian international Oscar insists summer signing Cesc Fabregas has taken Chelsea to another level this season with his “beautiful passes”. Oscar heaped praise on his fellow midfielder, who has already racked up nine assists since joining from Barcelona during the summer.
The Blues finished third in the Premier League last term but have made an undefeated start to the current campaign and sit four point clear at the top of the table after 10 games.
Oscar played an integral role in Chelsea’s latest victory, netting the opener in Saturday’s 2-1 defeat of QPR courtesy of a sublime finish with the outside of his right foot. However, the Brazil international was reluctant to take too much credit for his sublime goal, preferring instead to heap praise on Fabregas, who had provided the assist.
“Cesc gave a beautiful pass to me,” Oscar told Chelsea TV. “It was perfect for shooting and when the ball came I decided now, I need to shoot. “I don’t know if it is my best goal – I need to see it again – but it was a nice goal.
“But Cesc helps the team so much and not just with the assists. In a game, he helps everyone, with beautiful passes like the one for me in this game. “He has come in this year and played so well and I like playing together with him.
