Mourinho delivers latest Chelsea injury update ahead of Man City trip
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho reveals Oscar is a doubt for the clash against Manchester City on Sunday
Jose Mourinho says Chelsea midfielder Oscar is their only injury concern ahead of their trip to Manchester City on Sunday.
The Brazil international scored the west London side’s first goal in a 2-2 draw with Swansea City at Stamford Bridge in their opening Premier League game last weekend.
However, Oscar picked up a knock in training during the week and Chelsea manager confirmed that the South American is a doubt for their trip to Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Jose: 'Oscar is a doubt, he had a little injury in training. Courtois is suspended, apart from that it's all good.' #CFC

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois won’t feature against the Citizens after the Belgium international was sent off in the second half of their 2-2 draw with the Swans.
Asmir Begovic, who moved to Chelsea from Stoke City in an £8m deal earlier this summer, will come into the Blues side for the game against the Premier League runners-up.
Oscar’s free-kick and Willian’s deflected cross gave Chelsea the lead twice against Swansea but first Andre Ayew and then Bafetimbi Gomis drew the Welsh side level.
