Oscar scores glorious free-kick to put Chelsea ahead versus Stoke [GIF, Video & Vine]

Just before the half hour mark in Chelsea’s FA Cup 4th round tie with Stoke, Brazilian playmaker Oscar stepped up and cracked home a glorious free-kick past Asmir Begovic.

Almost immediately, there were suggestions that Chelsea don’t need Juan Mata, with the Spaniard in charge for a lot of set pieces over the past two seasons.

But, lets be honest, Oscar and the likes of Eden Hazard and Willian have been producing excellent form all season whilst Mata has been stuck on the Chelsea bench.

More to the point, this shows the full range of Oscar’s qualities and we can expect the Brazilian to crack home a fair few set-pieces in the coming seasons.
