Oscar praised by Chelsea teammate Lampard over recent performances
Frank Lampard has added his compliments to those of Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho regarding the impressive recent performances of Brazilian playmaker Oscar.
After grabbing the only goal of the game in an FA Cup victory against Stoke City, Oscar's form has diluted the pain of selling Juan Mata to rivals Manchester United earlier this week.
Speaking with ITV, England stalwart Lampard said: "Juan Mata is an absolutely fantastic player and more than that he is an absolutely great lad. The difficult thing here is that there are so many quality players and Oscar has been fantastic this year, as has Hazard."
"Willian's shown that , and we've got so many riches in that position that it's difficult, but you need performances like that from Oscar today.That free kick was absolutely top drawer."
Oscar and his Chelsea colleagues are still in three competitions and will face Galatasaray in the next round of the Champions League in February.
