Premier League kits: Man Utd, Arsenal & all the new jerseys for 2017-18

0

With the 2016-17 campaign completed, English clubs are already releasing their shirts for next term and we have everything you need to know

Premier League clubs release their new kits earlier than ever nowadays, with many sides sporting their new shirts for the final match of the season before the one they have been designed for.

Others, however, hold their fresh jerseys back longer and fans can expect them to trickle out across the summer months as they count down the days to the new campaign.

How Costa rose from Barca to Chelsea

From Arsenal to West Ham, Goal will be tracking all the latest releases on this page throughout the off-season. Consider this your one-stop shop for videos, images and information as we find out what each Premier League club will look like in 2017-18.


ARSENAL


Home:

Arsenal are yet to release any of their new kits but word is that we will see at least the home design before the end of May.

Rumours and leaks on social media have suggested the primary jersey will follow the Gunners’ usual red-with-white-sleeves format but will feature a darker red than usual.

Away:

Arsenal often release their kits all together in one presentation, so we’ll likely see the away shirt at the same time as the home one is made public. Current speculation suggests it will primarily be a vibrant light blue.

Third:

The third kit could be released at the same time as the home and away or later on in the summer, with images floating around showing an eyecatching dark-grey design with pink trim.


BOURNEMOUTH


Bournemouth are yet to release any of their new kits for the 2017-18 season. The Cherries have a new manufacturer this year, with Umbro taking over from JD Sports for the next five seasons.


BRIGHTON


Home:


Brighton released their new home kit in time to show it off at their promotion party after they secured second place in the Championship and a spot in the top flight for 2017-18.

It follows their usual design of blue-and-white stripes but adds some gold details to mark what is sure to be a memorable debut campaign in the Premier League for the Seagulls.

Away:

Brighton are yet to release their new away kit. Last year’s version was an all-black design with ‘volt’ yellow trim.

Third:

The newly promoted side had a red third kit with a two-year lifespan released back in 2015, but whether they will replace it or not for the coming season remains to be seen.


BURNLEY


Burnley will be releasing a new home and away kit for the coming season, but dates have yet to be confirmed. The Clarets did not wear a third jersey in 2016-17.


CHELSEA


Home:

None of the new Chelsea kits have been released yet, but we can expect plenty of fanfare when they are as the Blues swap from Adidas to their arch-rivals Nike.

The latest rumours suggest that there will be a slight colour change to the home jersey for 2017-18, with Antonio Conte’s men sporting a paler blue than the more striking shade they wore during their final campaign with Adidas.

Away:

Nike look set to flip the away and third kits of the 2016-17 campaign, with early leaks indicating that the Blues’ lightest jersey next season (a pale silver has been mooted) will be their main alternative. For this year’s title win, Chelsea wore a black away kit and a white third.

Third:

In turn, the darker jersey will switch from away to third. The most recent leaks showed this to be a dark grey – almost black – design with bright blue trim.


CRYSTAL PALACE


Home:


Crystal Palace will return to the traditional design of their blue-and-red stripes for the 2017-18 campaign after wearing thicker stripes last season.

They have released the jersey before confirming their new shirt sponsor but that company’s logo will appear front and centre, as usual, once the deal is tied up.

Away:

Palace are yet to release their new away kit – last season’s was yellow with a black-and-red double stripe going diagonally down the front of the shirt. They did not release a third kit for 2016-17.


EVERTON


Home:


Everton released their new home kit to a mixed response from fans, with the design featuring a navy section on the sides and the return of the Umbro diamond graphic down the sleeves.

The Toffees also have a new sponsor on the shirt, with SportPesa replacing Chang.

Away:

Everton’s away kit is yet to be released. Last year, it was dark grey with salmon trim but barely worn, with the Toffees perhaps finding that their third kit offered a bit more contrast to opposition jerseys that required them to swap out of their normal blue.

Third:

That third kit was bright yellow with some blue details and is also yet to be replaced for the new campaign.


LEICESTER CITY


Home:


Leicester City released their new home kit in time to wear it in the final game of the Premier League season against Bournemouth, which ended in a 1-1 draw.

The new design features a subtle pinstripe print, a gold panel down the sleeves and trim of the same colour. The match against the Cherries, though, was the only time the Foxes will sport complementary gold Premier League logos on the jersey as defending champions.

Away:

Leicester have not yet released their away kit. Last season, they wore an all-red design on their travels.

Third:

Their new third kit is also yet to be made public. The Foxes’ alternative strip was white with blue pinstripes in 2016-17.


LIVERPOOL


Home:

Liverpool Kit 2017-18

Like Leicester, Liverpool released their new home shirt early enough to don it for their final game of the campaign. It made a successful debut, too, as the Reds defeated Middlesbrough to qualify for the Champions League.

Incorporating components of their kits from the 1970s and 1980s, the slightly different shade of red and V-neck collar with a thin red stripe have been warmly received by Liverpool fans.

Away:

Steve McManaman Liverpool

Liverpool have not released their new away kit but rumour has it that it will take inspiration from the striking green-and-white quartered jerseys they wore back in the 1990s.

Third:

Robbie Fowler Liverpool

Like the other two kits, Liverpool’s third kit also looks set to be a throwback to a design from years gone by. Early leaks have suggested that the alternative jersey will be orange, which could mean it is based on the shirt they wore to win three cup competitions in 2000-01.


MANCHESTER CITY


Home:

Manchester City kit


After a delay out of respect for the victims of the Manchester Arena bombing, City released their new home kit on May 31.

Having worn a different shade of blue on the sleeves of last season’s shirt, the new jersey returns to one block colour with white trim. It is said to be inspired by the 1967-68 kit they won the league title in as they search for a first trophy under Pep Guardiola.

Away:

Nicolas Anelka Manchester City

City’s away kit is not expected to be released until July but rumours have suggested they will be going back to claret for the first time since the 2002-03 season.

Third:

Leaks of City’s third kit that have appeared so far have revealed an interesting dark green design that looks almost like camouflage due to the pattern of the print on the shirt. That kit is not expected to be released until the start of the new season or even later, though.


MANCHESTER UNITED


Home:

Manchester United look set to release their home kit later in the summer, with leaks suggesting it will be a return to one single shade of red after the Red Devils wore a two-tone effort this past season.

Away:

Man Utd away kit 2017-18

United’s new away kit is already out and is based on the the blue-and-white design they wore away from home between 1990 and 1992, but this time re-created in black and white.

The club crest is also monochrome and the three Adidas stripes run down the sides.

Third:

Like the home kit, United’s third jersey is set to be revealed later in the summer.

Quite surprisingly, given the black-and-white theme to the away kit, it is said to be silver in colour and will feature a shadow graphic of the famous statue of George Best, Denis Law and Sir Bobby Charlton that stands outside Old Trafford.


NEWCASTLE UNITED


Home:


Newcastle United’s home shirt for their return to the Premier League will feature a rather large new sponsor in Fun88, an Asian online gaming and gambling company.

Otherwise it is the usual black-and-white stripes, though one notable feature is that the Magpies will return to red letters and numbers on the backs of their shirt this coming season.

Away:

Newcastle have not yet released their away kit and little information has crept out into public. Last season’s road shirt was navy with a large orange hoop across the middle.

Third:

Like the away kit, we have no indications of what the third strip will look like or when it will be released. It will replace the current white strip with purple trim.


SOUTHAMPTON


Southampton are yet to release any of their 2017-18 kits. They wore their usual red-and-white stripes at home in 2016-17 and a black away kit, also releasing a one-off, all-white third strip specifically to avoid a clash when they played Bournemouth.


STOKE CITY


Home:


Stoke City released both of their new kits early in May, well in advance of the end of the 2016-17 campaign. They wore their new home jerseys, which feature a red, white and blue collar, in their 4-1 defeat against Arsenal.

Away:


The Potters’ away strip is an eyecatching blue with a red and white pattern across the breast and a white collar. They will save this one until next season, wearing their existing away kit in their final match of the season at Southampton.

Third:

Stoke did not have a third kit in 2016-17 and do not seem to intend to release one next season, though they have brought out one-off kits in the past to deal with clashes.


SWANSEA CITY


Swansea are yet to release any of their kits for 2017-18. Made by Joma, their home kit last season was all white and their away strip an attractive turquoise-to-navy gradient. They did not wear a third kit.


TOTTENHAM


Home:

Tottenham’s home kit for the 2017-18 season has not been released, but we do know that Nike are taking over from Under Armour. It has also been suggested that the crest will change slightly, with the current cockerel logo being put inside a shield.

Away:

Spurs have not released their away kit, either, but it is expected to be navy blue.

Third:

Their third kit will not be made public until later in the summer, but it has been speculated that it will feature the same pattern as Man City’s rumoured third kit but in purple rather than green.


WATFORD


Watford have swapped from little-known US manufacturer Dryworld to Adidas, but their kits for 2017-18 have not been released yet. They wore their usual yellow at home and white away last season, with no third kit.


WEST BROM


Home:


West Brom released their new home kit on May 25, going for a simple V-neck collar and no stripes on the back of the shirt to make the lettering and numbering better stand out.

The Baggies will be sponsored by Chinese construction firm Palm this season.

Away:

West Brom are yet to release an away kit to replace last season’s effort, which was black with electric blue pinstripes.

Third:

The Baggies did not wear a third kit last season and are unlikely to again in the coming campaign.


WEST HAM


Home:

West Ham are yet to release their new home kit for the 2017-18 season.

Away:


The Hammers have put out their away strip, however, wearing black for the first time in their history. The kit is black from head to toe with touches of light blue trim.

Third:

West Ham wore a special, one-off Thames Ironworks kit for their first match at the London Stadium against Juventus last season, but it was never worn in the Premier League and they may not release a third kit for the coming campaign.
