Chelsea did not make any additions to their squad on transfer deadline day, though they did sent a number of their players out on loan.
The most notable of those to secure a temporary move away from Stamford Bridge was striker Romelu Lukaku, who has moved to Everton for the remainder of the season.
The Belgium international’s last action in a Chelsea shirt was to miss the decisive penalty in last Friday’s Super Cup final defeat to Bayern Munich, while he also appeared in two of the Blues three Premier League games so far this season.
Mexico U23 midfielder Ulises Davila has moved to Cordoba, while Sam Hutchinson joins fellow Blues Gael Kakuta, Patrick van Aanholt, Cristian Cuevas and recent signing Christian Atsu at Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem.
The club managed to keep hold of Fernando Torres, Juan Mata and Demba Ba, all of whom had been linked with other clubs throughout the summer.
Meanwhile, Victor Moses has told the Liverpool Echo that a chat with Daniel Sturridge helped persuade him to make the switch to Anfield.
The pair spent six months together at Stamford Bridge before England international Sturridge moved in the January transfer window.
