Conte: This is why Oscar is important to Chelsea…

Chelsea's Antonio Conte has hailed the contributions of Oscar in the early stages of the new season.

The Brazilian midfielder has started all four of the Blues' Premier League matches thus far and has been instrumental in their undefeated beginning as a key performer between defence and attack.

Conte said of Oscar's role: "Last season Chelsea conceded 53 league goals. I was thinking of this situation.

"Now, we have found the right compromise between defensive and offensive situations.

"Oscar is a good player, great technique, and can do both facets: both offensive and defensive.

"He's an important player for Chelsea."
