Oscar discusses Chelsea adaptation

Chelsea midfielder Oscar has spoken to the club's official website regarding his transition to English football so far this season.

Oscar, 20, joined Chelsea direct from Brazilian football this summer for a fee in the region of £25 million and has impressed with the speed of his adaptation to the English game.

Since the arrival of new manager Rafael Benitez recently, the Brazilian has found himself on the substitutes bench having found himself overused in the early season.

"The biggest difference between the two leagues is that over here it's more dynamic," Oscar told the site ahead of Chelsea's Club World Cup campaign getting underway later this week.

"The pace of the game in England is intense and frenetic and it's probably a bit more technical in Brazil, but I love playing in the Premier League. It is one of the best leagues in the world, with some of the best players in the world. Most players would love to have an opportunity to play in this country."

Regarding his off the pitch adaptation, the former Internacional star insisted that he is very happy with life in London—even if learning English is proving difficult.

"I'm very pleased with how I've adapted to the move and the only problem I have is the language. I get along with all of the players, which is nice, and I'm picking it up English quite quickly, but it takes time.

"On the pitch, I'm learning and I can communicate quite well with most of my team-mates. Off the pitch, I enjoy living in London, so I'm very happy at the moment."
