With the transfer window slamming shut on Monday, Chelsea's squad for the rest of the season is set... barring any last minute surprise sales to China of course, where the window is open for a few more weeks.  But Chelsea cannot register any new players until the summer, so we'll have to make do with the players we already have.

Earlier today, the club confirmed both the Premier League and Champions League squad lists for the second half of the season.  We should be fairly familiar with the homegrown/non-homegrown regulations by now, so it should come as no surprise that one player will be deemed surplus to requirements in Europe -- Djiloboji and Ramires were both non-homegrown, but were replaced by equally non-homegrown players in Matt Miazga and Alexandre Pato.

A list:
Begovic, Ivanovic, Fabregas, Zouma, Baba, Oscar, Hazard, Pato, Mikel, Courtois, Traore, Kenedy, Pedro, Remy, Costa, Miazga, Matic, Willian, Cahill, Terry, Blackman, Azpilicueta

B list:
Aina, Loftus-Cheek, Collins

So neither Marco Amelia nor Radamel Falcao make the cut for Europe, with the two young (and homegrown) goalkeepers Jamal Blackman and Bradley Collins taking the backup spots to Courtois and Begovic, and Falcao taking the glamorous Djilobodji role.

With Premier League squad restrictions allowing for an unlimited number of under-21 players, regardless of HG/non-HG status, we can register everybody (and then some!)

PL squad:
Begovic, Ivanovic, Fabregas, Oscar, Falcao, Hazard, Pato, Mikel, Courtois, Pedro, Remy, Costa, Matic, Willian, Cahill, Terry, Blackman, Azpilicueta, Amelia

Under-21:
Zouma, Baba, Traore, Kenedy, Miazga, Beeney, Aina, Loftus-Cheek, Collins

Mitchell Beeney is actually on short-term loan at the moment, until at least the middle of February.
