Soccer – Optimistic Oscar keen for campaign to start

Chelsea midfielder Oscar can't wait for the new Premier League season to start after an encouraging pre-season campaign for Antonio Conte's team ended with a 4-2 victory against Werder Bremen. After winning the 2014/15 title, the Blues endured a difficult time last season, eventually finishing tenth in the Premier League table. As a result of their below-par displays they will not be involved in Europe this term but Conte's side are 11/2 with bet365 to win the 2016/17 Premier League title outright. Oscar is in a confident mood ahead of next Monday's Premier League opener against West Ham United, a match Chelsea are 8/1 to win 2-1. The Brazilian playmaker said: "In the last two games I have scored three goals so I am feeling good. We are ready and now we are all just looking forward to starting the season."
