Oscar 'very happy' at Stamford Bridge despite Liverpool reports

The Brazilian is keen to remain at Chelsea despite slipping from favour a little in recent weeks.

Chelsea's Brazilian star has diffused reports that he may be looking for a move away from Stamford Bridge, telling Sky Sports that he is has no reason to leave the London outfit.

Juventus and Liverpool have been linked with a move for the classy attacking midfielder this week in the Mail, though it looks like Oscar is staying put for now.

"I'm very happy here," the Brazil international said. "I get along with everyone, and the club shows its praise towards me. Chelsea is one of the best clubs in the world, so I don't see why I would think of leaving.

"I'm very happy with Chelsea's season so far and happy with my own performance as well, but I do think I could have contributed more to the team."

Oscar has found himself on the substitutes bench a little more often in recent weeks, either coming on for just a few minutes at the end of games or as a player replaced before the 90 minutes are up.

And the former Internacional star's form has suffered a little over the last ten games, having failed to score or assist in the last ten Premier League games.

But the 23-year-old hasn't read too much into the change in tactics that sees him featuring less than some of his teammates, pointing to the importance of tailoring tactics for each games as per Jose Mourinho's plans. 

"There are different tactics depending on the opponents we face, and we respect the manager's choices," added Oscar. "Sometimes I've ended up not playing the entire match, but I'm doing my best to fulfil my role."
