Ross Barkley, Malang Sarr, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and Lewis Baker have all been included in the squad despite not playing a single minute with the first team this season.
Some of the other notable additions include youngsters like Trevor Chalobah and Lucas Bergstrom who have made their way into the Chelsea Premier League squad from the academy. Callum Hudson-Odoi is another player who has made it to the squad despite struggling to get any quality game time.
