*= B List Player

I don't think are any real surprises on that list, though it's good to see that Sahin was included in the roster--and hopefully will be able to actually play some meaningful matches as well. It's is interesting to see that even though he's not a favorite at all of Mourinho, Lass made the Champions League main roster and not the B list.
