Chelsea confirm UEFA Super Cup squad as changes made and Romelu Lukaku decision taken

have confirmed their squad for tomorrow’s UEFA Super Cup clash against Villarreal in Belfast – and has not been included.

However, Lukaku’s return to Stamford Bridge has yet to be officially confirmed and, as a result, he will not be included in Thomas Tuchel’s squad for tomorrow’s game.

A group of 24 players has travelled out to Belfast for the game, and have made changes to the initial squad submitted to UEFA on Saturday.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Trevoh Chalobah – who is expected to leave on loan before the transfer window closes – have both been added to the squad.

The inclusions of Loftus-Cheek and Chalobah, meanwhile, have resulted in Tino Anjorin and Ethan Ampadu being taken out from the squad.

Several other players who have spent pre-season with the first-team squad, such as Malang Sarr, Davide Zappacosta, Ross Barkley and Michy Batshuayi, have been left at home.
