Watch: Ex-Chelsea star Oscar assists four goals and then gets sent off

Oscar for Shanghai

Former Chelsea playmaker Oscar was involved in all five goals for Shanghai Port FC before being red-carded in their 5-1 victory in the first leg of their Chinese FA Cup semi-final tie.

The Brazilian put in an impressive individual performance, directly assisting four goals and being involved in the build-up for the other in the side’s win over city rivals Shanghai Shenhua.

An injury-time VAR review then deemed him to have hit an opposition player in the face with his elbow.

The midfielder caused controversy when he opted to move to China in a big-money deal from Chelsea in January 2017. His contract with the side, which recently changed its name from Shanghai SIPG, made him one of the highest-paid players in the world.

Oscar’s cross-field ball was vital in the build-up to his sides opener in the 8th minute before he found his teammates a further four times to all but secure the team’s passage to the final.

His set of assists included a delightful dink over the opposition defence for the second goal.

Since moving to Shanghai Port, Oscar has won the Chinese Super League once, in 2018.
