Chelsea submit 26-man 'provisional' Premier League squad and shirt number list

Clive Mason

Surprise, surprise, all the numbers match the numbers that the players wore during preseason...

Hey, did you want a post about how Chelsea Football Club have confirmed and submitted a list of names and numbers to the Premier League offices regarding the shirt numbers that their players will wear for the 2013-14 season?  The same shirt numbers that they have been wearing for over a month now?  Well today is your lucky day!

Chelsea Football Club have confirmed and submitted a list of twenty-six names and numbers to the Premier League offices ahead of the kick-off of the 2013-14 Premier League season.  Here's the list:

1 Petr Cech
2 Branislav Ivanovic
3 Ashley Cole
4 David Luiz
5 Michael Essien
7 Ramires
8 Frank Lampard
9 Fernando Torres
10 Juan Mata
11 Oscar
12 John Mikel Obi
13 Victor Moses
14 Andre Schurrle
15 Kevin De Bruyne
16 Marco van Ginkel
17 Eden Hazard
18 Romelu Lukaku
19 Demba Ba
23 Mark Schwarzer
24 Gary Cahill
26 John Terry
28 Cesar Azpilicueta
33 Tomas Kalas
34 Ryan Bertrand
40 Henrique Hilario
46 Jamal Blackman

Notice anything new or weird or crazy or strange or just random?  No?  Yeah, I didn't either.

The best part about this list is that it's still actually just "provisional" since things can (and sometimes do) change before the transfer window shuts for the summer.  So after assigning numbers for pre-season training and now assigning the same numbers for the "provisional" list, Chelsea will get to assign the numbers for a third time on September 4th.  Fun!

Moving on.
