This afternoon at 5pm all the Premier League clubs had to submit their 25-man squads for the season (or at least up till January's transfer window) and Chelsea have only submitted a 19-man squad.

The new rules state that each club has to include a minimum of eight "home grown" players who have trained for three years with any English or Welsh club before the age of 21 if the full 25 player quota is used. Added to that there is an unlimited number of players under the age of 21. This is where Ancelotti will look to blood more of the youngsters into first team action this season.

Our four "home-grown" players include, Frank Lampard, John Terry, Ashley Cole and Ross Turnbull.

The squad list submitted is as follows:

Ashley Cole, John Terry, Frank Lampard, Ross Turnbull, Petr Cech, Branislav Ivanovic, Michael Essien, Ramires, Yossi Benayoun, Didier Drogba, John Mikel Obi, Florent Malouda, Jose Bosingwa, Yury Zhirkov, Paulo Ferreira, Salomon Kalou, Alex, Henrique Hilario, Nicolas Anelka.

In addition our under 21st listed on the official website that are also included are:

Daniel Sturridge, Patrick van Aanholt, Jeffrey Bruma, Gael Kakuta, Fabio Borini, Josh McEachran

So what do you all make of our squad? Have we left ourselves short when it comes to the busier period of the season?, Will we see the likes of Bruma, Sturridge, Kakuta involved in the cup competitions allowing the first teamers to rest for key games in the season?.

One thing is for certain, Chelsea have a method to their madness and I back our squad to fight on all front's this season!
