Despite Chelsea's unbeaten run coming to a shuddering halt two weeks ago against Newcastle, allowing Manchester City to close the gap at the top to three points, Oscar has aimed a warning message to those in pursuit of the league leaders.

The Blues travel to face Stoke City on Monday night to kickstart a period of games which will see them play five times in the space of two weeks. Ahead of the tie, Oscar has admitted that he is fully confident that Chelsea can win the league this season due to their formidable form.

The Brazilian midfielder said: "It is good for us if we can be at the top of the league when the year ends.

"It means we begin 2015 where we want to be, and sends out an important message. Now I hope to end the year well and I think 2015 can be a special year for this team."

Jose Mourinho's side have a tough winter schedule approaching with a trio of ties against West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton followed by a prosperously thrilling FA Cup fixture against Watford in January.

But Oscar, who has chipped in with three of Chelsea's exemplary record of 6 goals so far this season in all competitions, has claimed that the Blues are strong enough to emerge through the busy period unscathed.

"In a short space we have five important matches, four in the Premier League against Stoke, West Ham, Southampton and Tottenham and then the FA Cup also.

"All of those matches will be difficult for us but I think that we are good enough to win all of them" he added.

Formerly of Chelsea, AC Milan midfielder Michael Essien praised Jose Mourinho for the work he has done to 'transform' the club in such a short period of time since his return to Stamford Bridge last summer.

"They have a lot of young players who can step up. I think they are going to become like Chelsea of years ago. And they will win trophies for their club," said the Ghanaian.

"That is because of their manager. I remember working with Jose and he is a very good example to other managers of how to run a club."
