Thomas Partey will wear the No 5 shirt for the forthcoming season, changing from the No 18 he wore following his arrival from Atletico Madrid in October.
Talking about the switch, Thomas said: “I like the No 5 because it's one of the most important numbers in the team and it is also a lucky number for me. It's the number I've worn for the past few years, so for me it's one of the best numbers."
