Chelsea fans react to Oscar's performance against Maccabi Tel Aviv on Twitter

Oscar returned to the Chelsea side after being absent from recent games due to injury.

Chelsea haven't had many reasons to smile this season, but last night they produced one as they got their Champions League campaign off to the perfect start with 4-0 win over Maccabi Tel Aviv at Stamford Bridge.

After Willian was brought down in the early stages of the game, it looked as though it could be another frustrating night for Jose Mourinho and his side when Eden Hazard skied his penalty - prompting laughter and ridicule on the internet, as one would expect.

But they didn't have to wait long until they found a breakthrough, as Willian's free-kick missed everybody on the way through to give Chelsea the lead and provide some much needed relief to Stamford Bridge - though the Brazilian was withdrawn shortly afterwards through injury, with Diego Costa taking his place.

A second penalty came Chelsea's way before the interval when Costa was brought down, with Oscar given the chance to convert the opportunity. 

Though the visitors had the odd chance to get on the scoresheet, they weren't clinical enough in the final third and Costa put the game beyond doubt with a well taken volley, while Cesc Fabregas rounded off a Chelsea counter-attack to complete the scoring. 

But one man whose performance seemed to catch the eye was that of Oscar, who returned to the side following a muscular injury - and some seem to be of the opinion that he was sorely missed during his absence. 

Here is a selection of what the fans had to say on twitter:
