Exposed: Chelsea squads finally Confirms shirt numbers for 2023/24 EPL season; Here they are.
After the huge influx of purchases last summer and in January 2023, the opposite has happened in the summer of 2023. Loads of senior players have been sold by Chelsea as they look to trim the wage bill and general squad size, partly for Financial Fair Play but also for sporting reasons.
There were simply too many of them last season and they are still selling actively.
It has not all been sales, as some players have come through the door at Chelsea, so there could be loads of different squad numbers compared to last season.
As it stands, here are Chelsea’s squad numbers for the 2023/24 campaign.

More numbers than just these are available, but here are the ones you would expect Chelsea to fill before they take to the field.
