Oscar was delighted to score a double on his full Chelsea debut – but was left wondering what might have been after Juventus hit back to earn a point at Stamford Bridge.
The Brazilian shone in his side's Champions League opener, scoring twice in the first half to seemingly put the defending champions in control.
The 21-year-old's second goal in particular was sensational but the playmaker rued the comeback from the Italian champions as Chelsea settled for a 2-2 draw.

Curler: Oscar scored a brilliant second goal for Chelsea against Juventus
'I am very happy with the two goals on my debut but I would have been

Best newcomer: Oscar celebrates after helping Chelsea into the lead
'The fans are very good here [at Chelsea]. I like it at the club and I
hope I can keep going and score more goals like this. I have a lot of
friends in London. The Brazilian players are always together so I am
very happy with my life and with the club.'
Oscar's second goal showed why Chelsea splashed out 25million for him in the summer.
'I was playing very well so I could scorer this beautiful goal and I’m very happy with it,' he added.
'I was trying to get space to shoot
so my first touch was to get the ball away from [Andrea] Pirlo and
shoot. It was a good goal.'

Oscar's team-mate Eden Hazard believes Chelsea can become the first team to successfully defend the Champions League title.
'I think we played a good match. Oscar scored two goals but after that we weren't able to defend the lead better,' he said. 'Hopefully we will do that in our next matches.
'I don't feel any pressure because of my price tag, I have already shown how I can play at Lille and hope to continue like that here, scoring and setting up goals to help the team win.
'Of course, we have great players and a great team as we showed when we won the competition last year. If all our players are at their best there is no reason why we can't win it again.'
