Chelsea have submitted our Champions League squad and Chelsea striker Diego Costa failed to make the list as earlier speculated.
Despite making Chelsea’s Premier League squad, Costa won’t be playing Champions League football with Chelsea this season. This could mean Chelsea still hope to sell Costa when the transfer window opens in January and Chelsea do not want Costa to be cup-tied.
Chelsea record signing Alvaro Morata was included in the list alongside summer signings Danny Drinkwater, Davide Zappacosta, Antonio Rudiger, Willy Caballero and Tiemoue Bakayoko.
Here is Chelsea’s Champions League squad list:
Goalkeepers: Thibaut Courtois, Willy Caballero, Eduardo
Defenders: Davide Zappacosta, Victor Moses, Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Jake Clarke-Salter, Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, Gary Cahill, Marcos Alonso, Kenedy.
Midfielders: N’Golo Kante, Kyle Scott, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Cesc Fabregas, Danny Drinkwater. Charly Musonda, Pedro, Willian, Eden Hazard.
Forwards: Michy Batshuayi, Alvaro Morata
