A bit of housekeeping here from the Champions, as Chelsea have today confirmed both our Premier League and our Champions League squads.
UEFA had already published the latter on their website yesterday, but the Blues have now confirmed that new signing Papy Djilobodji will in fact miss out on the group stages of the competition. We will have an opportunity to add to and adjust the squad come the knockout rounds, provided we make it that far, so if Djilo establishes himself as an integral member of the squad, he will have every chance to finally realize his Champions League dream (which supposedly played a big part in agitating for a move away from Nantes).
Begovic, Ivanovic, Fabregas, Zouma, Baba, Ramires, Oscar, Falcao, Hazard, Mikel, Courtois, Traore, Kenedy, Pedro, Remy, Costa, Matic, Willian, Cahill, Terry, Blackman, Azpilicueta
Or, if you're a visual learner:
We're in far less of a bind when it comes to the Premier League squad thanks to the rules being a bit more relaxed regarding homegrown/non-homegrown young players. Anybody under 21 years old can basically be registered for free, and do not count against the non-homegrown limit of 17. The list is the same as the Champions League list (plus Djilobodji), otherwise.
Zouma, Baba, Traore, Kenedy, Aina, Loftus-Cheek
