Chelsea playmaker Oscar is unable to separate Manchester United and Manchester City as to which side are the Blues’ biggest rivals.

The west Londoners have fallen off the pace in the Premier League recently as the duo have claimed a strong lead at the summit.

“Both [clubs are our biggest rivals for the Premier League],” Oscar told Fifa.com.

“City have a lot of excellent players and are the reigning champions, and they’ve become very adept at grinding out results.

“But Manchester United have been there and done it time and time again. They’re both excellent teams.

“However, I’m confident Chelsea will do it. We’ve got a different team to last season, so we’re in a transitional period.

“I think as the season goes on, we’ll get more used to playing together and play better as a result.”
