Chelsea confirm Premier League squad list after January deals with five big surprises

Arsenal's Granit Xhaka scores his side's second goal of the game

Maurizio Sarri’s squad list for the remainder of the Premier League season has been confirmed with five surprising features for Chelsea.

The Premier League requires clubs to resubmit their rosters after the January transfer window, with the Blues having signed Gonzalo Higuain from Juventus on loan until the summer.

Eagle-eyed readers may notice that the Blues are one player short of the 25-man quota that the league set out as the limit for players to be registered – the first of five curve balls.

Defender Gary Cahill was expected to leave during the window. He ended up staying at Stamford Bridge and has been registered to play in the Premier League.

Former Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater was told he had no place in Sarri’s plans and was also tipped to leave Chelsea in January. He has also been included on the club’s Premier League list.

Then there’s Lucas Piazon. Despite joining Chievo on loan until the summer he has been registered for the Premier League, so has midfielder Marco van Ginkel.

On the list of under-21 players, Chelsea have named Ethan Ampadu alongside other players who have departed on loan including Tammy Abraham – he left to join Aston Villa in the summer – and Izzy Brown.
