Chelsea wonderkid Tino Anjorin has been added to the Champions League ‘B List’ squad ahead of their opening match against Sevilla.
The 18-year-old has just recovered from an injury and returned to action for the Development Squad at the weekend in their 3-2 win over Derby County.
And now Anjorin has been the latest youngster to be added to the squad and could be called upon if required by Frank Lampard.
The ‘B List’ can be added to midnight before any Champions League match and it includes some of the best Blues youngsters, in case they are needed.

Goalkeeper Karlo Ziger and versatile midfielder Henry Lawrence were already added to the list, along with Ian Maatsen who has now been removed due to his loan move to Charlton Athletic.
As part of the ‘B List’, there are also the more established young Chelsea players in Reece James, Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Billy Gilmour.
Anjorin made his first team breakthrough last season under Lampard when he played in the Carabao Cup rout against Grimsby Town.
He then made his Premier League debut against Everton just before the league came to a stop because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This season, clubs are allowed 12 substitutes during all matches, with five changes being allowed over the course of the 90 minutes.
It means that if there are some injuries ahead of matches, some of the Chelsea youngsters will be able to feature in the games.
