Chelsea star Oscar wants to become a Blues legend like Frank Lampard and John Terry.

The Brazil midfielder joined Chelsea from Internacional in a £25m deal this summer, and introduced himself to the Stamford Bridge crowd with a stunning brace on his Champions League debut against Juventus.

And the Chelsea new-boy is eager to endear himself to the fans further by following the example set by terrace hero's Frank Lampard and John Terry.

"I hope to have the same path as Lampard and Terry here at Chelsea," Oscar said on They have a great career at the club and are very important for the squad. They are big idols."

Oscar struck twice against Juve in the Champions League, and the playmaker made his first Premier League start a few days later against Stoke.

And the Olympic silver medallist was full of praise for the Premier League - a competition he views as the best in the world.

"As like the Brazilian League, the English League is also very balanced," said Oscar. "But I believe it's the strongest league in the world, especially because the best players play in England."

Chelsea have started the season in great form, and top the Premier League table. Roberto Di Matteo's side secured a superb win at Arsenal at the weekend, and the new look attacking line consisting of Oscar, Eden Hazard and Juan Mata has gelled well with Fernando Torres.

The Blues face Nordsjaelland in the Champions League on Tuesday evening, and after opening with a draw at home, Roberto Di Matteo will be keen to get three points in Denmark.
