Following the end of the January transfer window, teams now have the squads in place and have added new signings to their rosters for the UEFA Champions League and Europa League knockout rounds.
Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool have all updated their UCL squads, while Arsenal have updated their Europa League squad.
Virgil Van Dijk, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez are all available to play for their new PL teams, but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang isn’t. Why? Here are the official UEFA rules about adding players to your squad for the knockout rounds.
- For all matches from the start of the round of 16, a club may register a maximum of three new eligible players for the remaining matches in the current competition. Such registration must be completed by 1 February 2018 (24.00CET) at the latest. This deadline cannot be extended.
- 44.02 One player from the above quota of three who has been fielded in a UEFA club competition group stage match for another club in the current season may exceptionally be registered, provided that the player has not been fielded:
a. in the same competition for another club; or
b. for another club that is currently in the same competition.
