Chelsea have submitted our Champions League squad for the new season and there are three surprise players included.

Chelsea have added Ross Barkley, Malang Sarr and Lewis Baker to our Champions League squad after the trio were omitted from our Premier League squad.

Barkley, who lost the no.8 shirt to Kovacic this season, will wear the no.18 shirt should he make a Champions League appearance.

Malang Sarr, meanwhile, has been assigned the no.31 shirt while Lewis Baker will wear the no.32 shirt.

Chelsea begin our Champions League defence against Zenit on September 14 at Stamford Bridge. A trip to Turin to face Juventus follows two weeks later before a home clash with Malmo on October 20.

Tuchel’s side then travel to Sweden for the return match against Malmo before hosting Juventus. The Blues round off their group with a trip to northern Russia to face Zenit on December 8.
