Oscar enjoying Chelsea and Brazil role

Chelsea and Brazil star Oscar insists he is relishing the key role he plays for club and country.

Oscar helped himself to his second and Chelsea's fifth after half-time.
Oscar scored twice for Chelsea in the win against Arsenal.

Jose Mourinho’s side lead the Premier League table by four points and are in the Champions League quarterfinals.

The 22-year-old also hopes to play a big part for the Selecao at the World Cup this summer.

And, despite making over 40 appearances already this season, Oscar says he is happy with the amount of game time he is receiving.

“It's not just this season, I've played so many games in the last few seasons, plus with the national team we are always playing as well,” he told Chelsea's official website.

“It's difficult but I enjoy it and I'm fine. We now have the last seven or eight games in the Premier League, as well as the game in the Champions League, so I need to sleep well, have a massage and then I will play well.”

Oscar bagged a brace in the 6-0 win against Arsenal at the weekend and believes that result was coming after the shock 1-0 defeat against Aston Villa the previous week.

“It's 11 goals for the season and two goals in the game against Arsenal so I'm very happy,” he said.

“For the first goal Nando [Fernando Torres] gave me a beautiful pass and I scored. The second goal, I got the ball and shot, so it was a good goal.

“Everyone played well against Aston Villa but we didn't shoot, and if you don't shoot you don't score.”
