Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has announced a list of 25 players for the knockout stages of the Champions League.


West London Blues face LaLiga giants Atlético de Madrid in the round of 16 of the competition after finishing top of their group.


The first leg will be played on February 23 in Madrid, while the return match will be played at Stamford Bridge on March 17.


UEFA has decided this season to allow five substitutions per game, which means that Chelsea can name 23 players per matchday squad, with 12 substitutes.


Two names have been removed from the first: Fikayo Tomori, who joined AC Milan on loan, and Ian Maatsen after his transfer to Charlton Athletic.
