The Champions League group stage is just days away, managers have already submitted their 25 man squad that will feature in the group stage alone. After passing through the group stage to the round of sixteen, another squad will be submitted by the managers. Thomas Tuchel submitted a 25 man squad for the Champions League group stage and Callum Hudson Odoi wasn't among that 25 man squad.
Callum Hudson Odoi wasn't the only one excluded from the squad Chelsea's youth goalkeeper Lucas Bergstrom and Harvey Vale who got promoted to the senior team were not among the squad. These players were found in the B list.
What's the B List?
A player may be registered on List B if he is born on, or after, 1 January 2000 and has been eligible to play for the club concerned for any uninterrupted period of two years since his 15th birthday (players aged 16 may be submitted if they have been registered with the club for the previous two years).
Callum Hudson odoi, Lucas Bergstrom and Harvey Vale were all born after January 1st 2000. They don't qualify to be named in the A list, though they'll still partake in every activity like others. Callum Hudson odoi played a major role in Chelsea's group stage success last season, he'll definitely be an essential feature for Thomas Tuchel this season.
Chelsea's 25 Man Squad
Goalkeeper: Edouard Mendy, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Marcus Bettinelli
Defenders: Andreas Christensen, Ben Chilwel, Marcos Alonso, Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger, Trevoh Chalobah, Cesar Azpilicueta, Reece James, Malang Sarr
Midfielders: Kai Havertz, Mason Mount, Jorginho, Saul Niguez, Mateo Kovacic, Ruben Loftus Cheek, Ross Barkley, N'golo Kante, Christian Pulisic, Lewis Baker, Hakim Ziyech
Forward: Timo Werner, Romelu Lukaku
Chelsea have one of the best squads for the group stage of the Champions League, hopefully Thomas Tuchel gets to a latter stage in the competition with this squad.
