Champions League: Frank Lampard names Chelsea’s squad
Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has named his squad for this season’s Champions League.
The Blues, like everyone else, have a List A group and a List B group.
Each club must name a maximum of 25 players, two of whom must be goalkeepers.
There are a minimum of eight places reserved exclusively for ‘locally trained players’.
If a club have fewer than eight locally trained players in their squad, then the maximum number of players on List A is reduced accordingly.
Chelsea will play Valencia, Lille and Ajax in Group H.
