Chelsea’s squad numbers for the 2019/20 Premier League season have been confirmed, with several changes for fans to be aware of.
New signing Christian Pulisic will wear 22, which has been vacated by Willian, who will now wear 10 following the departure of Eden Hazard.
Andreas Christensen will now wear 4 and Kurt Zouma 15, with Tammy Abraham installed as Chelsea’s new number 9. Former loanees Tiemoue Bakayoko, Kenedy and Michy Batshuayi take the 14, 16 and 23 they have worn for the Blues previously, with Mason Mount taking 19, Reece James 24 and Fikayo Tomori 29.
Mateo Kovacic, whose loan from Real Madrid became a permanent move this summer, stays with the number 17 he wore during the 2018/19 campaign.
