Chelsea’s bid to win the premier league title for the first time since 2010 has received a major boost after news emerged midfielder Oscar has been discharged from the hospital without any major injury following yesterday’s 0-0 draw with Arsenal at the Emirates. Oscar was forcefully removed in the first half of the match following an heavy collision with Arsenal goal keeper David Ospina.
It was initially thought the injury may be serious especially as the player was immediately rushed to the hospital and manager Jose Mourinho confirmed after the match that his medical team were a little scared about the Brazilian’s situation. However, Mourinho has now confirmd the Brazilian has been discharged and could well be back to the first team when Chelsea take on Leicester city on Wednesday.
Asked how Oscar is, Mourinho said on Monday: “I really don’t know. I know that he’s not in the hospital. He slept at home. He should be arriving [for training].”
Mourinho was further asked to confirm if the player suffered a concussion to which he said; “I’m not sure of that. We saw his face swelling and at half-time we don’t want to go for any risks.”
Chelsea who are ten points above closest rivals Arsenal now only need two wins out of the remaining five games to be declared champions of the premier league.
