Teenage striking sensation Romelu Lukaku has been omitted from Chelsea's 22-man UEFA Champions League squad.
With only 17 non-homegrown players allowed by Uefa regulations, the 18-year-old, who cost an initial £13million from Anderlecht, will not be able to feature in the group stages.
Given only four of the eight homegrown players can be "association trained", England Under 21 international left-back Ryan Bertrand is another not included.
However, promising young midfielder Josh McEachran will be available as the 18-year-old is set to be part of Chelsea's 'B' list.
Chelsea's other summer signings Oriol Romeu, Juan Mata and Raul Meireles are all in the 22-man group.
Regulations for the domestic Premier League are different, and would see Lukaku counted as one of Chelsea's Under 21 players, so not part of the 25-man quota.
