Chelsea have named their Champions League squad for the 2020/2021 season.

However, former Nigeria international, Victor Moses is not in the 25-man squad released on Wednesday.

The Champions League group stage will commence later this month, after the draw was concluded last week and the Blues squad for the first stage of this competition has been submitted to UEFA.

Each competing club has to submit a List A of their playing staff which comprises up to 25 players with a minimum of eight locally trained players of whom four must have come through the club’s own ranks between the ages of 15 and 21.

Any shortfall in those eight reduces the overall number available, and UEFA have announced five substitutions will be permitted this season, increasing the number of players selected for a matchday squad to 23.

In addition there is List B, made up of players aged 21 or younger with two years’ training at the club. This list can be updated at any time up to midnight before a Champions League match.
