New Chelsea signing Oscar reveals that he feels under no pressure to shine at his new club.

New Chelsea signing Oscar has claimed that he doesn't feel under pressure to shine at the Blues.

The Brazilian international faces stiff competition from the likes of Eden Hazard, Marko Marin and Frank Lampard for a regular midfield spot.

However, Oscar remains unperturbed by the pressure, comparing it to being awarded the famous number 10 shirt for Brazil, previously worn by the likes of Pele, Zico, Rivaldo, Ronaldinho and Kaka.

"I hope I won't feel any pressure - I am not feeling it at the moment," said the 20-year-old.

"Back in Brazil, when I broke into the national team, people were asking the same question, did I feel pressure at being the number 10 of the team, the new star? But I didn't feel pressure. I think it will be similar here.

"I am coming into a great team but I feel I can cope with it."

Oscar has been awarded the number 11 shirt at Chelsea, previously worn by club legend Didier Drogba.
