Chelsea Select UEFA Youth League Squad

Scottish sensation Islam Feruz was impressive for Chelsea throughout the NextGen Series last year.

Chelsea have named a very strong squad for their inaugural UEFA Youth League campaign.

Lewis Baker, Nathan Ake, Islam Feruz and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are all increasingly becoming household names and have been named in the under 19 squad.

Feruz has been particularly impressive since joining the London club from Celtic over two years ago now.

The 17-year-old has played for Scotland at every youth level, most recently making his debut for the under 21 side where he has now racked up four appearances and netted twice.

He made his first-team debut for the Blues pre-season against a Malaysia XI side.

He was also the joint topscorer in last season’s NextGen Series competition, meaning any defence should fear the young Scotsman in this competition.

Chelsea will play Schalke, Basel and Steaua Bucharest in the group stage.

Full Squad: (from @ChelseaYouth)

Mitchell Beeney, Ben Killip, Ola Aina, Nathan Ake, George Brady, Andreas Christensen, Dion Conroy, Fankaty Dabo, Jordan Houghton, Jonathan Muleba, Kevin Wright, Charley Musonda, Lewis Baker, George Cole, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Isak Ssewankambo, John Swift, Kasey Palmer, Islam Feruz.
