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)
“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)
“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)
“This was worn when Arsenal won the league at Old Trafford and the gold shirt features one of the greatest sponsors the Premier League has seen in Sega.”
5. West Ham 2002/03 (away)
“A beautiful piece of kit. Fila x Dr Martens x pinstripes = one of a kind.”
4. Tottenham 1991/94 (third)
“It’s one of Tottenham’s all-time greats. The ‘SPURS’ detail across the front and reverse is a genius template from Umbro.”
3. Liverpool 1995/96 (away)
“This is a super stylish green and white adidas design worn by Liverpool’s ‘Spice Boys’. It was way ahead of its time!”
2. Aston Villa 1992/93 (home)
“This is a classic early ‘90s laced collar design from Umbro. The Mita Copiers sponsor across the front is very powerful.”
1. Chelsea 1994/96 (away)
“A grey and orange combo, with the stylish Coors sponsor thrown into the mix make this the standout shirt 90s shirt for Chelsea.”
