In an unexpected development, Chelsea FC has named a 23-man squad ahead of their first Champions League fixture against Dinamo Zagreb scheduled for kickoff on Tuesday, September 6, 2022. Thomas Tuchel has named a squad with unexpected changes, with Thiago Silva and N’Golo Kante both set to miss out on the first game.

However, Chelsea has received a huge boost with Aubameyang and Zakaria making the 23-man squad. Chelsea would be looking to build on the win at Stamford bridge on Saturday, September 3, 2022. Aubameyang had been in doubt about making the team, but from all indications, his mask seems to have been fitted ahead of this tie.
