The official retained and released lists for all clubs were published yesterday by the Premier League, and as usual, there are a few interesting thing to note.
Also, as usual, there are a few inexplicable errors, such as Michy Batshuayi missing entirely. Someone at Chelsea either forgot to put him on the list, or there was a transcription error from submitted to published on the Premier League website. Either way, he’s disappeared into his Bats-cave, and is nowhere to be found.
We haven’t forgotten about you, Michy!
