Chelsea midfielder apologises to Lucas

Published Add your comment

Chelsea midfielder Oscar says he has apologised to compatriot Lucas Leiva after the two clashed during the final moments for the defeat of Liverpool on Sunday.

Lucas became incensed following a robust challenge from Oscar and, after spring to his feet, proceeded to shove his Brazil teammate into the Stamford Bridge turf.

Oscar, however, moved on Monday to quell an suggestion that the two have fallen out by revealing on Instagram that he had spoken to Lucas about the incident and that all is well between the pair.

Along with an image of the players together on international duty, beside Chelsea's Ramires, Oscar posted the following message: "Good morning guys, all is well between me and Lucas. It was simply a game moment. I’ve apologised, hes [sic] a great Friend Of mine."

Chelsea's triumph over Liverpool propelled the Blues above their opponents and into third place in the Premier League, just two points behind leaders Arsenal.

Eden Hazard and Samuel Eto'o scored the goals after Martin Skrtel had provided the visitors with the lead, and defeat saw Liverpool plummet into fifth position.

Liverpool had been top on Christmas day but consecutive losses against Manchester City and Chelsea means are six points behind Arsenal and only two ahead of Manchester United.
