Oscar earns Chelsea veteran's praise
Chelsea keeper Petr Cech feels summer arrival Oscar is already starting to justify his £25million price-tag.
The Blues forked out a hefty fee to Brazilian side Internacional in the summer to secure Oscar's services, beating off competition from Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid to sign the 21-year-old. The Brazil international has already impressed at Stamford Bridge and starred in their Champions League tie against Juventus on Wednesday with a quick-fire brace, before the Italian side hit back to grab a 2-2 draw. Cech feels Oscar has the potential to become a Chelsea great and hailed the way the youngster has dealt with the pressure of his big money move to the Premier League side. "He has quite a big price tag on him for a young guy and he's under extra pressure," Cech told the London Evening Standard. "It's been great for him, obviously, his performance and two goals. "They will give him a lot of confidence and people will realise that he is really good value. "He's settled in quite quickly and you can see he's really worth the money the club spent, obviously, now. "So let's see how well he's going to develop over here. "He has a pretty good set-up here too to become a great player." Chelsea host Stoke on Saturday and Oscar is expected to start the match despite picking up an ankle knock against Juve following a clash with Leonardo Bonucci.
