PICTURES: 24-man Chelsea squad for UEFA Super Cup versus Villarreal

Hey ho hey ho off to Northern Ireland we go!

Chelsea have made the quick trip to Belfast, Northern Ireland today ahead of tomorrow night’s UEFA Super Cup super-friendly against Europa League champions Villarreal.

A total of 24 players have traveled, as confirmed by the official Chelsea website, including both Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Trevoh Chalobah, who were not listed in the provisional squad that was published on the UEFA website, causing a few Twitter scenes. Chelsea do have until tonight (Tuesday) 11pm to amend the squad still, or add any List B players (e.g. Ethan Ampadu?), though that seems unnecessary at this point. (The squad itself is subject to similar rules as the Champions League registrations: i.e. no more than 17 non-homegrown, at least 4 club-trained players, etc.)

The squad in full is as follows:

GOALKEEPERS: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Marcus Bettinelli, Édouard Mendy

DEFENDERS: Antonio Rüdiger, Andreas Christensen, Thiago Silva, Kurt Zouma, Trevoh Chalobah, Marcos Alonso, Ben Chilwell, Reece James, César Azpilicueta, Emerson

MIDFIELDERS: Jorginho, N’Golo Kanté, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Mateo Kovačić, Mason Mount

FORWARDS: Tammy Abraham, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Hakim Ziyech

As also pointed out by the official website, the shirt numbers in this game will not yet be the official ones for the season ahead.
