Oscar hails Cesc's 'beautiful passes'


Oscar starred in the Blues' 2-1 defeat of QPR on Saturday, netting the opener with a sublime finish.

However, the Brazil international afterwards deflected praise onto Fabregas, who 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.

"Last year the team was strong but this year the team plays so well and plays every game to win, and this is important for us."

Fabregas has scored two goals and recorded 11 assists in 13 outings for Jose Mourinho's side since his £27 million signing from Barcelona in June.
