Many of us are deservedly praising Willian for another amazing performance at Stamford Bridge, being rewarded with a great free kick goal that turned things around for Chelsea at the end of yesterday's match against Dynamo Kiev. Still, Willian wasn't the sole star performer last night as Oscar also had a great showing as a left winger, starting there for the second straight match. According to him, the Blues had to get a win -- no matter how they were going to achieve it:
"It didn't matter how we were going to it, we needed to win today. The team played very well -- especially in the first half -- but we conceded a goal in the second half and Willian scored our second goal through that great free kick and we ultimately got the win."
Asked whether the squad still backed Mourinho, Oscar said they have been doing everything they can to get out of their bad form with the same motivation as they had when Mourinho started his second spell at Chelsea:
"The squad has been trying to do everything since the start, like we did when Mourinho first arrived at the club. We always play to win but we have been under a bad form.
"Logically, everyone demands more from Mourinho and from the players but I am sure that after this win we will get back onto the winning track.
"Even though we were playing well and not getting good results, we'll get back to winning more games."

Chelsea's win against Dynamo Kiev yesterday may not have been as dominating and exhilarating as Bayern's win against Arsenal last night, for example, it might be just what we need to get back into our customary good form while we rebuild our confidence for this season and many others to come.
