Tyreece John-Jules made his debut for Doncaster Rovers, with the striker playing 78 minutes in the 1-1 draw against MK Dons.

Konstantinos Mavropanos missed out through injury as Stuttgart won 1-0 against Hansa Rostock.

  1. Jeorge, just a question, concerning the 25 man squad does the 25 players named only apply to the EPL or does it includes both the domestic cups as well?

    In other words could a club name 25 players for the Premier League but in the League Cup name a foreign player to play in a tie who is outside of the 25?

      1. Thanks for that Jeorge, I was just wondering as we could have, if we sign the Icelandic guy, at present 19 foreign players and if we did, somehow manage to bring in Partey and Aouar, to fit them in we’d have to move on 4 players from the 17 foreigners allowed.

      2. Yep sokratis, torreira, and ozil would be my favourites for the chop possibly mustafi too.

        Even if mustafi stays I doubt he will play much part before the next window. Guendozi would be in there but seeing as he is still classed under 21 he don’t count
