Hiddink: Oscar handed down penalty to struggling Chelsea ace Hazard

Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink has revealed that Oscar gave away his penalty to Eden Hazard in the FA Cup on Sunday.

The Belgian converted from 12 yards in the 5-1 win over MK Dons to finally open his scoring account for the season, giving his team a three-goal lead in the fourth round of the prestigious cup competition.

Brazilian star Oscar had already completed his hat-trick when the penalty was awarded and opted to hand the duties to the reigning PFA Player of the Year who has been well below his best this campaign.

"Of course we have the hierarchy of penalties, Oscar is the first one to take," Hiddink told BBC One.

"But he gave it to Eden because everyone knows he hasn't scored for a long time due to injuries and not having scored."
