Phil Neville and Michael Owen were quick to take to Twitter to praise Oscar after the Chelsea midfielder broke the deadlock in the London derby with a brilliant strike.

The Brazil international used the outside of his foot to bend a world-class finish past Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Rob Green in the 32nd minute at Stamford Bridge.

Unsurprisingly there was a huge reaction to Oscar’s stunning effort, and here is a selection of our favourite social media reaction from the professionals, past and present.

Former Manchester United full-back Philip Neville (@fizzer18) is quick to tweet about Oscar’s goal: “Brilliant finish/technique from Oscar”

England legend Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) knows all about clinical finishes in the penalty area: “Sublime finish from Oscar with the outside of his foot to give Chelsea the lead.”

Ex-Everton midfielder Peter Reid (@reid6peter) is writing tomorrow’s headlines for Oscar: “Oscar over & out, magnificent.”

Republic of Ireland international Sean St Ledger (@seanstledger12) must be thankful he doesn’t play in the Premier League: “Stop that Oscar!”

Former Chelsea star Mario Melchiot (@MarioMelchiot) talks us through the goal: “As a kid u learn to use the inside of your foot, when you master that they teach u how to use the outside. #oscar perfect expl #mmlove #CFC”

Finally, Liverpool legend Michael Owen (@themichaelowen): “The finishes from Oscar and Wanyama were pretty tasty!”
