I won’t take much of your time in this piece, I just need your candid opinion on this issue and I’ll be happy if it is analysed once and for all.

Sitting down today after the rigours of acquiring a degree my mind came back to my beloved ‘Chelsea’ for the future and for the present, I have been very vocal in the use of Oscar on the wing and the dreaded pivot at a time because of his exploits in the Brazil friendlies and the Olympic games where he starred as a playmaking no.10, my thoughts are now on the lad, can he help us if played in the pivot?

Would he be suited there?

If played in the pivot would it affect his chances in the selecao and dull his attacking instincts?

My thinking is Oscar is an ideal no.10 who can be one of the best in a couple of years in that role, but I want you to help analyse if it can work playing him in the pivot without jeopardising his place in the selecao?

Or should we just scrap the 4-2-3-1 formation?

I read somewhere that Neymar is being linked to Chelsea, I doubt if he’ll come to us, but knowing Roman he might want a player like him in the team, the question remains where he will play?

As Hazard seem to be a little similar with the young Brazilian and it will be difficult for him to succeed as a striker in the PL due to its physicality, but as I type this Xavier Hernandez comes to mind, please tell me about Oscar`s abilities as a no.10 or his ability to play in the pivot first before we talk about a player who is not a Chelsea player yet.

Thank you
