Oscar scored in the 42nd and 66th minutes of Chelsea's 6-0 demolition of Arsenal on Saturday.

Oscar's brace ended a long scoring drought that saw him go goalless in the Premier League since New Year's Day. He now has eight goals and two assists in league play this season, although his scoring droughts make him an unreliable fantasy option.

Oscar may be the target of a £40 million transfer bid from Paris Saint-Germain this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

Chelsea would have to decide to sell the midfielder that they bought for £25 million in the summer of 2012. Oscar still has three years remaining on his current contract with Chelsea.

Oscar came on two minutes into extra time in the second half of Chelsea's Champions League round of 16 first leg against Galatasaray on Wednesday.

Oscar suffered an ankle injury last weekend, although it is unclear if he did not play much in Turkey due to the injury, or because of a tactical decision by manager Jose Mourinho. It's not great news either way, although he should be fit for Saturday's Premier League match against Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Oscar (ankle) is in the squad for Chelsea's Champions League match at Galatasaray on Wednesday, Goal.com reports.

Oscar came off at halftime of last weekend's Premier League match against Everton due to an ankle injury, but it's a nice boost that he could face the Turkish giants. He will likely not play all 90, but he could start with David Luiz (muscle injury) and John Obi Mikel (knock) both questionable, not to mention Nemanja Matic sitting out since he's cup-tied to Benfica.

Oscar was subbed off at halftime during Saturday's match against Everton after picking up an undisclosed injury. Manager Jose Mourinho said "Oscar was injured. he said he could cope with the pain, there was no risk to make it worse, but he couldn't."

If Chelsea weren't heading to Turkey for a Champions League tie with Galatasaray on Wednesday, it's possible that they could have let Oscar keep going. They will need him back, along with David Luiz, for the Champions League tie, with Nemanja Matic ineligible to play.

Oscar assisted on Willian's 71st minute goal and then scored one of his own in the 82nd minute of Chelsea's 3-0 win over Southampton on Wednesday.

Oscar actually played a role in Chelsea's first goal, as his shot from the left side was deflected, hit the woodwork, and was then tapped in by Fernando Torres. Amazingly, Oscar didn't even start the match, coming on in the 53rd minute for Juan Mata. His performance Wednesday should certainly get him back in the starting XI.

Oscar picked up an assist during Chelsea's 2-1 win over Liverpool on Sunday.

After coming off the bench in back-to-back matches in the last two weeks, Oscar has regained his starting spot for the Blues. He has been a bit limited of late in terms of production, but he's a vital piece for Chelsea and will continue to have fantasy value because of it.
