Chelsea concluded their pre-season tour of North America last night with a convincing 3-1 win over AC Milan.

After the game, new boss Antonio Conte revealed that the performance had helped make things clearer for him regarding which players will be part of his first-team plan this season, and which could be heading for the Stamford Bridge exit door.

Although he didn't offer up any specific names, Chelsea's fans responding to the comment shared by the club's official Twitter account didn't take long to come up with names they want to see leave west London. One somewhat surprising name kept on coming up.

First Conte's actual comments on his current squad...

Clearly the former Juventus boss isn't done tinkering with his squad, and Chelsea fans were more than happy to offer up suggestions as to who should go.

Unfortunately for Brazilian playmaker Oscar, his name just kept on cropping up.

Considering the 24-year-old was one of Chelsea's standout performers against Milan - bagging a second-half penalty and a cooly struck goal in the final stages - he must be asking himself what more he can do to convince the Stamford Bridge faithful.

It isn't so long ago that Oscar was one of the first names on the Chelsea team sheet but fans are clearly still struggling to shake off the memories of what was a lacklustre 2015/16 campaign.

The Brazilian was also recently linked to a big money move to Napoli, so that could have factored in to the fans' calls for him to be sold.

Hope

Perhaps most importantly for the diminutive attacking midfielder, however, his performances do seem to be gaining recognition with the man that matters - Conte himself.

That's because, as well as hinting at further departures, the Italian manager reserved some individual praise for Oscar when speaking after the victory over milan.

"I think he is a good player with a great talent," Conte said. "And he can improve a lot. I see a good attitude and a good will."
