Oscar: I have an 'instinctive' understanding with Chelsea teammates Mata and Hazard
Seleção star Oscar claimed that an instinctive understanding with fellow Chelsea playmakers Juan Mata and Eden Hazard has helped to form one of the Premier League's most devasating attacking lineups.
Oscar told The Daily Telegraph: "The three of us are quite similar in the way we play so although it's about communication and getting to know each other, there's also something quite instinctive.
"Instinctive because we understand what the other one wants to do because it's what we would do ourselves. The way we play with short passes suits us and that's why we are gelling so well.
For instance, when one of us has the ball, the other two are already looking to see how we can give him the support he needs. When I play, they know what I'm going to do and the three of us in the middle, we want to improve together, grow together, win together."
Oscar admitted there are comparisons with Brazil in the way they play: "I play with players in the Brazilian national team who are similar to those at Chelsea - Kaka, Neymar. We play a similar style, have the same instinct and also the same spirit."
