Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will not feature in Chelsea’s remaining Champions League fixtures this season, after he was removed from the updated squad.
Aubameyang has been replaced with record-breaking signing Enzo Fernandez, Mykhailo Mudryk and Joao Felix.
Benoit Badiashile is also not listed on Chelsea’s UEFA squad page after joining in a £35m deal last month.
Chelsea were only allowed to register a maximum of three new players for the knockout stages of the Champions League, before taking on Borussia Dortmund in the last 16, starting on February 15.
All clubs are limited to a 25-man squad and Chelsea used 24 players in the group stage, with only one of them – Jorginho – leaving the club in the January transfer window. Clubs had to inform UEFA of their desired squad changes by 11pm on Thursday, February 2.
The three new registered players are allowed to have played for another club in European competitions this season, so being cup-tied for the knockout stages was not an option for any of the players.
