Oscar: This is why working with Antonio Conte was a "bit scary" at the beginning


Chelsea attacking midfielder Oscar has joined a number of teammates in praising new manager Antonio Conte.

The 24-year-old revealed that the Blues are adopting a different formation this season under the Italian but also that they are enjoying themselves on the pitch.

The Brazilian has also stressed the importance of enjoying a solid start in the Premier League in order to avoid the disappointing finish of last season.

"It's a change, it's different, and [Conte] is a very good coach, a very good guy," Conte told Sky Sports.

"Every coach is different to one another and we're playing slightly different style, but we enjoy it, and we're hoping to have a very good season.

"At the beginning it was a bit scary because he works players initially, but when you look at the results on the pitch you know he's done it for a reason. It's good for me.

"Last season we didn't have a very good start, and eventually when we tried to revert the situation it was too late to reach the top spot.

"When you look at the season we were champions we had a very strong start to the season, and we ended up champions. It's important to have a good start.

"Definitely the aim is to be champions. We have a good team and we have the players as well to make us champions, we just have to focus on what we're doing, we have to concentrate."
