Clubs are releasing their new looks for next season, but here, talkSPORT.com asked greatestkits.co.uk what the division’s greatest ever looks are

Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool are among the Premier League clubs to have released their looks for next season.

Some are good, some are decent and others are just really rubbish – we’re looking at you, Southampton, with one fan even saying the club deserves relegation for the offering.

Let’s hope it’s not a summer of below par offerings, but in case it is, talkSPORT.com asked George Bartlett of greatestkits.co.uk to count down the eight best kits in Premier League history.

8. Manchester United 1995/96 (away)

It may not get a lot of love, but fans are never likely to forget this release from Man United

“A borderline entry for the Hall of Shame, the grey away shirt is an all-time classic with a great story to go with it.

“It was blamed for United’s miserable first 45 minutes against Southampton in April 1996, which saw the Saints take a three-goal lead. Fergie said the shirts made it difficult for his players to see each other and ordered them to never wear it again.”


7. Nottingham Forest 1995-97 (away)

‘Graffiti art meets football’

‘Graffiti art meets football’

“Not sure what Umbro and Forest were thinking when they came up with this, but it completely works. Graffiti art meets football.”

6. Arsenal 2001/02 (away)

Arsenal’s players were wearing this shirt when they won the Premier League at Old Trafford in 2002, which was sealed by a Sylvain Wiltord goal
