Ashley Cole has been given Chelsea squad number 3, the same number he wears for England and carried previously for Arsenal.


The new arrival takes over the number from William Gallas who was allocated 3 at the beginning of the season but never wore it. Last season it was on Asier Del Horno's shirt.


The first game for Cole as part of the Chelsea squad is next Saturday, September 9th, when Charlton come visiting.


Kick-off is at 3pm and tickets are currently on general sale.
