For the second time in three years, it's Oscar who's won Chelsea's Goal of the Season. In 2013, it was his magnificent curling effort around Andrea Pirlo and Gianluigi Buffon of Juventus in the Champions League. This year, the opposition was far less glamorous, but the strike was equally as impressive.
Congratulations to @oscar8! His wonderful strike against QPR is our Goal of the Season… #CFCPOTY https://t.co/s5lgMi1hBi— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) May 26, 2015
In our in-house polling, it was Andre Schurrle's team goal against Burnley that was voted as the season's best goal, but with perhaps that goal ineligible due to Schurrle's mid-season transfer (it wasn't even nominated), Oscar's effort (which did finish second in our polling) is more than worthy of the honor.
Incidentally, four of the last five Chelsea goals of the season have been scored by Brazilians: Ramires in 2011 and 2012, Oscar in 2013 adn 2015. Last year, academy standout Lewis Baker walked away with the award.
