Chelsea Vs Villarreal Super Cup Final - Several Big Names Left Out Of Provisional Squad

News Hub Creator

Chelsea has named a provisional team of 26 players for their UEFA Super Cup match against Villarreal on Wednesday, although a few notable names are missing. Over 40 players are now participating in the club's pre-season, as Thomas Tuchel previously stated. It is unavoidable that some people will be left out. Chelsea has officially registered 26 players for the Super Cup, but they may still be able to make a few changes before the trip to Belfast.

Twenty-one of those players is on List A, while the remaining five are on List B.

Chelsea can technically have an unlimited number of List B players if they were born on or after January 1, 2000, and have played for the club for at least two years.

Lucas Bergstrom (GK), Ethan Ampadu, Faustino Anjorin, Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Armando Broja are the current five List B players.

Ampadu and Broja, on the other hand, are the only two returning loanees on the list, owing to their eligibility as List B players.

The provisional squad did not include Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Ross Barkley, Davide Zappacosta, or Tiemoue Bakayoko. Trevoh Chalobah, who had a strong pre-season under Tuchel, is another surprise omission.
