Whether it was a dive or a push, there was certainly an Oscar in there somewhere.

Former Chelsea midfielder Oscar, who moved to Shanghai SIPG in January, was involved in an incident Sunday that sparked a mass on-pitch brawl.

The Brazilian was at the heart of a feisty game with Guangzhou R&F in the Chinese Super League that ended 1-1.

But the game could have been abandoned when Oscar went down over a challenge that saw most of the 22 players on the pitch, as well as coaches and substitutes get involved in a mass melee.

Oscar moved to SIPG, coached by former Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas, for £40 million and has been one of the standout players for the Super League team.
