The Champions League group stage of the 2022-23 season kicks off this week.
Chelsea have released their 24-man squad for the Champions League group stages.
The squad is:
Goalkeepers: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Edouard Mendy, Marcus Bettinelli
Defenders: Thiago Silva, Trevoh Chalobah, Ben Chilwell, Reece James, Kalidou Koulibaly, Cesar Azpilicueta, Marc Cucurella, Wesley Fofana
Midfielders: Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Mason Mount, Denis Zakaria, Conor Gallagher, Carney Chukwuemeka, Ruben Loftus-Cheek
Forwards: Raheem Sterling, Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Chelsea fans must be wondering why striker Armando Broja’s name wasn’t registered on the list.
Broja didn’t have to be registered as he was included in the ‘B-List’, which will allow him to play.
The B list is full of home-grown players that can take part in Champions League games for clubs without having to be in their senior squad.
The Blues will kick off their Champions League campaign this Tuesday evening with a trip to Croatia to take on Dinamo Zagreb.
