Antonio Conte Leaves Out Diego Costa From Chelsea's Champions League Squad
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has left Diego Costa out of their Chelsea’s squad for the Champions League group stage.
The Spain striker is yet to play for the Premier League champions this season, after failing to secure a move away during the transfer window.
Costa’s omission has been regarded by many, as Chelsea still hoping to business for the 28-year-old in January.
With a possible move to Atletico Madrid still on the cards, the Blues want to ensure he is not cup-tied for the rest of the reason.
The list cannot be updated again until after the group stage.
Manchester United have surprisingly named Zlatan Ibrahimovic and James Wilson in their own squad.
Liverpool have left out Nathaniel Clyne, Danny Ings and Lazar Markovic, but have included Philippe Coutinho, who failed to engineer a move to Barcelona.
