Chelsea squad for Super Cup vs Villarreal announced with spot free for Romelu Lukaku – but has until 11pm to register

CHELSEA'S squad for their Uefa Super Cup final against Villarreal on Wednesday has been announced.

And the Blues have left room for imminent new signing Romelu Lukaku but the Belgian must be registered by 11pm on Tuesday to be eligible to play.


Chelsea have named 24 players in the party who have travelled to Northern Ireland.

The West Londoners will take on the Europa League champions at Windsor Park on Wednesday night.

And they could include the Belgian striker if the move can be done by Tuesday at 11pm.

Edouard Mendy, Kepa Arrizabalaga and Marcus Bettinelli are the three named goalkeepers.

In defence, Antonio Rudiger, Marcos Alonso, Andreas Christensen, Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell, Reece James, Cesar Azpilicueta and Emerson travelled.

Jorginho, N'Golo Kante, Trevoh Chalobah, Mateo Kovacic, Hakim Ziyech, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Mason Mount are the midfield contingent.

And in attack, Thomas Tuchel selected Callum Hudson-Odoi, Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Tammy Abraham.

SunSport has explored which starting XI Tuchel is likely to pick.

And it could still include Lukaku.

IF YOUR LUK'S IN

The West Londoners have until 11pm on Tuesday to make any amendments to their final squad – meaning Lukaku could make his second Blues debut in Belfast.

Chelsea are closing in on a club-record £97.5million transfer to bring the Belgian forward back to Stamford Bridge.

And despite a lack of training with his new team-mates, he could be thrown straight into the starting XI against the Europa League winners.

The former Manchester United forward flew to Monaco on Monday to continue finalising the deal at the headquarters of his agent, Federico Pastorello.

Blues have agreed the club-record fee with Inter after Lukaku hit 30 goals and won the Serie A title last season.
