Premier League clubs have had to submit their 25-man squads for the first half of the season and there are a number of notable exclusions.
The rule has seen sides look to try and cut a number of deadweight from their teams over the course of the transfer window, however with the way the world currently is, there have been a few men who have been put in an unfortunate position. Bettors can avoid being put in an uncomfortable position themselves if they head to a site like online-betting.org/at/ for all their betting needs.
Indeed, there are some individuals that would have been unable to feature as they have serious injury concerns, but there are players who will now have to ‘rot’ away from the first-team picture in the clearest sign that they are deemed surplus to requirements at the club.
As confirmed by Sky Sports, the likes of Danny Rose, Jean Michael Seri and Connor Wickham have all been left unregistered. However, there are plenty of other names on the list that may have risen some eyebrows to an extent that Carlo Ancelotti might be proud of.
Mesut Ozil was left out by Mikel Arteta as the Spaniard reckons he has failed to get the most out of the playmaker, although the German has since questioned the loyalty from the club.
Newcastle have left four men out of their large squad, with Christian Atsu perhaps the biggest name, as he joins the likes of Henri Saivet, Achraf Lazaar and Rolando Aarons on the surplus to requirements at St. James’ Park pile.
As mentioned, Seri has been left out of Scott Parker’s side for the campaign despite playing a role last season in their promotion, whilst Josh Onomah, Kevin McDonald and Stefan Johansen also join him on the exile list at Craven Cottage.
Aston Villa have cut Henri Lansbury, whilst Yannick Bolasie and Mo Besic are clearly out of favour at Goodison Park in a new-look Everton side. Admittedly, they do not appear to have had much of a chance of making an impact for the Toffees, though.
As expected, Liverpool have left Virgil van Dijk out of their list but that was down to the ACL injury he picked up in the Merseyside derby and is likely to miss the rest of the season because of it.
