Check Out The English Clubs Squad For This Season Champions League

Clubs have been submitting their squads for this season’s Champions League

Following the closure of the summer transfer window across Europe, England’s Champions League clubs have submitted their player lists for the group stages of the tournament.

Clubs have to submit a maximum of 25 players, two of whom must be goalkeepers with a minimum of eight places reserved exclusively for ‘locally trained players’.

If a club has fewer than eight of these players in their squad, then the maximum number of players on their list is reduced accordingly.

Players born on, or after, January 1, 1998 and have been eligible to play for the club for two years since their 15th birthday do not need to be registered in this list and are instead placed on ‘List B’.

Each club can name an unlimited number of players on ‘List B’ throughout the campaign though the list has to be submitted by 10pm the day before a game.

Group games start on Tuesday, September 17 with clubs able to change their squads should they reach the knockout stages next year and are then allowed to register a maximum of three new players.

Below are the main squad lists for Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham with the key inclusions and omissions as well as notable ‘List B’ players…
