Just like any other Premier League side, Chelsea must comply with homegrown players regulations. Every team are bound to have at least 8 players of this type.
The ‘homegrown’ tag means a player must spend 36 months or more in England before his 21st birthday.
Despite featuring in several first-team Chelsea games this season, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ethan Ampadu have been registered on the Under-21 players list. They are still free to play for the Blues if selected by Maurizio Sarri, though.
