​Conte: Oscar still in his plans at Chelsea

Blues boss Antonio Conte has insisted out-of-favour midfielder Oscar has a part to play in his Chelsea squad.

The 25 year old has not featured in Conte's starting line-up in the Premier League since the 2-1 home defeat to Liverpool in September.

"Oscar's future is Chelsea. For me he is an important player in my squad. He is in good form.

"It is logical that I have to choose the starting XI every week but Oscar is a great player and, for me, he stays in Chelsea.

"It's important send this message to all. He will stay with us because I consider him an important player."
