Chelsea’s record January transfer outlay led to them bringing in EIGHT new players in.

However, Champions League rules mean that they are only able to include three of their signings in the squad for the knockouts.

Chelsea forked out a whooping £107m upfront with a potential further £4m to follow in add-ons to Benfica for Enzo Fernandez.

And the most-expensive player in Britain has been included along with Mykhailo Mudryk and Joao Felix.

Therefore that means that fellow new boys David Datro Fofana, Noni Madueke, Andrey Santos, Gabriel Slonina and Benoit Badiashile have all missed out.

Jorginho’s deadline day exit to Arsenal did free up one place in the squad – which was only initially a 24-man one for the group stages.

But another player also had to be omitted to make room for the trio which has led to Aubameyang being left out.
