Oscar takes centre stage as Chelsea defeat Brentford in FA Cup

Action Images

Chelsea's Brazilian midfielder Oscar was at the heart of a dominant second-half performance from the West London club as they defeated neighbours Brentford 4-0 in an FA Cup Fourth Round replay.

Oscar, restored to the starting lineup after his match-winning contribution against Sparta Prague in midweek, contributed a goal and an assist to his side's effort, having already struck the post earlier in the game.

The Brazilian was Chelsea's arguably most influential player on the afternoon, helping his side come to life after a goalless first-half.

With Juan Mata having given the Blues a lead, Oscar added a second with a neat backheeled flick. He would later supply his side's final goal with a delightful back-post cross for captain John Terry to head home.

One note of controversy came late in the game as fellow Brazilian David Luiz, playing in defensive midfield, escaped a possible red card for an arm to the face of opponent Jake Reeves.

Ramires was rested for the cup fixture, with Chelsea now progressing to face Middlesborough in the next round.
