Chelsea forward is thrilled to score his third Premier League goal of the season
Oscar was happy to help Chelsea battle to a 2-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers in the derby at Stamford Bridge.
The Brazil international broke the deadlock in the 31st minute with a superb individual strike which beat Hoops goalkeeper Rob Green.
In-form QPR striker Charlie Austin set up a dramatic conclusion to the derby when the 25-year-old scored a 62nd-minute equaliser.
However, the Premier League leaders extended their 100 per cent home record thanks to Eden Hazard’s penalty with 15 minutes remaining.
And Chelsea forward Oscar, who has scored three goals in eight league appearances this season, took to Instagram to express his delight after the win.
“Very happy to score and help #Chelsea to win this battle!” Oscar wrote on Instagram.
Oscar’s Chelsea team-mate Hazard described the South American’s opener as a “beautiful goal”.
“Sometimes this guy can score a beautiful goal,” Hazard told Sky Sports News.
“The free-kick against Palace, and today his shot is very good.”
