David Luiz compares Chelsea teammates Oscar and Eden Hazard
Chelsea defender David Luiz has compared his fellow teammates Oscar and Eden Hazard, as the two attacking midfielders battle for a first team place.
The Blues signed Hazard and Oscar this summer for £32 million from Lille, and £25 million from Internacional respectively.
David Luiz, who recently signed a new five-year contract at Stamford Bridge, believes the similar forwards have something different to offer at Chelsea.
He said: "They are both great players and could greatly help Chelsea.
"Oscar has more style, quality and power when passing and shooting from long distance.
"Eden is stronger one-on-one and despite being small, he is very strong."
Hazard had predominantly made Roberto Di Matteo’s starting eleven so far this season, with Oscar only managing a string of substitute appearances in the league.
However, following his outstanding Champions League debut against Juventus, the young Brazilian made his first Premier League start against Stoke City on Saturday, in which the Blues won 1-0.
The two will be battling for a starting place when Chelsea take on London rivals Arsenal next Saturday.
