First Hazard, now Oscar! Double trouble for Chelsea as playmaker pair are hit by injuries

Crocked: Brazil's Oscar indicates that he has been injured as he lies on the ground at training
Oscar has become the latest Chelsea midfielder to hand the club an injury scare after picking up a knock on his ankle in training on international duty with Brazil.


The 21-year-old sustained the injury in a clash with fellow midfielder Hernanes during Friday's session and faces a race against time to be fit for the friendly against Australia on Sunday.

Oscar's woe comes hot on the heels of Eden Hazard hobbling out of training with Belgium and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will be keeping a close eye on developments.

Oscar's injury will be monitored over the next 24 hours, with a decision on his availability made after that period, while Hazard insisted he would be fit to face Scotland at Hampden.

However, now looks like missing the game after wincing in discomfort, barely 20 minutes into the session, and leaving the Hampden pitch.

Oscar's Chelsea team-mate Ramires could be the beneficiary of his colleague's injury, and he could line up in an attacking role for Brazil alongside Shakhtar Donetsk winger Bernard.
