Got this from a source that I am not sure wants to be named, but I thank him all the same.
Franco Di Santo
John Mikel Obi*
*Indicates core players in last season’s FA Cup-winning team.
+Indicates new signings.
The source says: “The key omissions are Joe Cole, who has been in rehab for a cruciate ligament injury and recently underwent a further small operation on a minor tear of the meniscus; and Yuriy Zhirkov, another new signing, from CSKA Moscow, who will join up with his new teammates shortly.
Promising striker Sturridge, a teenager, was recently acquired from Manchester City and is likely to make his Chelsea debut at some stage..
Pizarro and Shevchenko were on loan all of last season and will probably be sold or loaned out again shortly.Mancienne, Sinclair and Hutchinson are youngsters from the Chelsea Academy from whom a lot is hoped in the future.
