6 goals in 8 games: Striker Jose Mourinho admires, Talisca is in top form

Chelsea admired Anderson Talisca scored again for Benfica.

Benfica striker Anderson Talisca scored again this weekend, bringing his record to 6 goals in 8 games. 

The 20-year-old Brazilian signed from Bahia in the summer, and has his the ground running.

He scored the opening goal for the champions in their 4-0 victory over Arouca on Sunday.

Talisca earned praise from Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho last month, who insisted the only reason he was not playing in the Premier League was because he does not have a work permit.

He told The Mail: "I think Benfica hired well. They say Talisca is unknown, but he is only so unknown because he's only not playing in England because he doesn't have a work permit. If he had one, he would be here!"

His scoring efforts will only aid his chances of a Brazil call, and chances of a big move later in his career.

Check out his goal from the weekend below:
