As confirmed by the club, they are as follows:

7 – N’Golo Kante


8 – Mateo Kovacic

10 – Christian Pulisic

11 – Timo Werner

12 – Ruben Loftus-Cheek

16 – Edouard Mendy

17 – Raheem Sterling


18 – Armando Broja

19 – Mason Mount

20 – Callum Hudson-Odoi

21 – Ben Chilwell


22 – Hakim Ziyech

23 – Conor Gallagher

24 – Reece James

26 – Kalidou Koulibaly

28 – Cesar Azpilicueta

29 – Kai Havertz

30 – Carney Chukwuemeka

31 – Malang Sarr

32 – Marc Cucurella

33 – Emerson Palmieri


Ethan Ampadu, Kenedy, Billy Gilmour, Ross Barkley, Harvey Vale and Michy Batshuayi have all not been given numbers for the new season - this indicates they could all been leaving the club this summer.

Vale is yet to sign a new deal with his current contract set to expire next summer. Barkley's future in west London remains unclear, as does Kenedy's.

New signings Raheem Sterling and Carney Chukwuemeka have been given the no.17 and no.30 respectively.

Kalidou Koulibaly has been confirmed as the no.26, previously revealed in a video which he shared on social media asking former club captain John Terry for permission to take the number.

He said: "At the beginning he didn't believe that it was me. He believed that it was a joke so he put down that phone and called the team manager to ask if it was really me."

"I know for him it's an important number. It's also an important number for me because I took it directly when I arrived at Napoli and I wanted to keep it here at Chelsea."

Following returns from their loan spells at Crystal Palace and Southampton, Conor Gallagher and Armando Broja will wear the no.23 and no.17 as they eye regular roles under Tuchel next season.

New arrival Marc Cucurella will wear the no.32 shirt.
