Brazil international Oscar has heaped praise on summer signing Cesc Fabregas and says his fellow midfielder has transformed Chelsea from last season's third-place finishers to this season's pace-setters.

Oscar scored the opener in the Blues' 2-1 win against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday. The 23-year-old finished sublimely with the outside of his right boot, but insists it was the work from Fabregas which made it happen.

"Cesc gave a beautiful pass to me," Oscar told Chelsea TV. "It was perfect for shooting and when the ball came I decided now, I need to shoot.

"But Cesc helps the team so much and not just with assists. He helps everyone, with beautiful passes like the one for me in this game."

The Spaniard has already racked up nine assists and a goal this season in his return to Premier League football, two more assists than any other player.

HAZARD SEALS THINGS

Charlie Austin levelled things for Harry Redknapp's men, flicking it past Thibaut Courtois to continue his fine run of form.

But it was Eden Hazard who ultimately proved to be Chelsea's match-winner in the weekend win at Stamford Bridge. After being bundled over by Chilean forward Eduardo Vargas, the Belgian coolly slotted home in style for Chelsea's second.
