Oscar: “It was a difficult game for us”

Chelsea midfielder Oscar has said that his side are disappointed with the outcome of the game against Liverpool on Saturday.

The Brazilian, making his 100th appearance in a Chelsea shirt, started as he saw the Blues lose a one-goal lead to lose 1-3, the sixth defeat out of 11 games for the Premier League.

And the 24-year old has said to the official Chelsea website that defeat was hard to take:

“It is very disappointing because we played so well in the first half but at the end of it, Coutinho scored but we tried, we came back for the second half and we played well again but we had a lot of bad luck.

“They scored two and it was a difficult game for us.”

Oscar was asked to consider whether Liverpool might have gone down to 10 men, when their midfielder Lucas escaped a second yellow card after a foul.

“We tried everything all the game but everything was for Liverpool,” he responded, “and Liverpool played the second half better than us. Coutinho played well, we tried everything but we didn’t win. We need to keep going.”

The midfielder also said that everyone in the team is behind Jose Mourinho, with reports suggesting the manager will be sacked with the club currently sitting in 15th in the table.

“Everybody tries to help him but the situation is not good for Jose and for the players and the fans but for Chelsea, we need to start winning again,” he added.
