Chelsea FC Squad Numbers for the 14/15 Season

1 of 8

When squad numbers are announced for the upcoming season, there is always information that can be garnered from what a player has on the back of his shirt. It could help deciding which name and number to get printed on the back of your new Chelsea shirt. It could also provide an insight into player preferences, as you may be looking for answers in the numbers as to whether a player is in Mourinho’s first team plans or set to leave the club. We have seen this work in both ways.

Last season, when Mohamed Salah was signed, there was speculation he would immediately go back out on loan. However, when handed the number 15 shirt it gave a firm indication he was going to be in and around the first team squad. However, when Oriol Romeu was handed the prominent number 6 shirt a few seasons back under Villas-Boas, he started a few games but his run in the first team did not last long and was soon farmed out on loan to Valencia.

Take a look at some of the more interesting squad numbers for the 14/15 season. What squad number would you pick?
