Catching up on the Premier League kit-tracker
Gameweek 3, August 25-27
Wolverhampton Wanderers 1 Manchester City 1
Seemingly, Manchester City don’t plan on wearing sky-blue away from home if they can avoid it. It was a surprise to many that they didn’t change socks here, especially as the navy home set would have worked fine with the pinstriped shirt.
Arsenal 3 West Ham United 1
A third outfield kit and third goalkeeper kit for West Ham, with the bluey-green change kit reminiscent of a 2016 Nike vapour outfit with the mismatching socks.
Bournemouth 2 Everton 2
Everton’s third shirt features an abstract pattern which takes its cues from Rupert’s Tower. Unusual, but not displeasing to the eye. It would be difficult to imagine that the purple goalkeeper kit will be worn with either of their other strips.
Huddersfield Town 0 Cardiff City 0
Cardiff have retained last season’s away shirt as a third option, though the navy shorts and socks suit it better than the white sets which were default in 2017-18.
Southampton 1 Leicester City 2
Liverpool 1 Brighton & Hove Albion 0
Watford 2 Crystal Palace 1
Palace didn’t really need to wear their sashed white away kit, but it’s always a popular design.
Fulham 4 Burnley 2
A socks-clash forced Burnley to switch to blue and they opted to change to blue shorts too.
Newcastle United 1 Chelsea 2
Manchester United 0 Tottenham Hotspur 3
Gameweek 4, September 1-2
Leicester City 1 Liverpool 2
Brighton & Hove Albion 2 Fulham 2
A third different Fulham shirt, even though they have yet to wear their designated navy away kit. Having used their red 2016-17 kit against Tottenham, here they donned the black tops from 2017-18.
Chelsea 2 Bournemouth 0
Crystal Palace 1 Southampton 2
This was one we had been curious about, given that Southampton have a red third kit.
I wonder will they wear the home against Palace given the amount of blue on the away or will it be yellow shorts

Instead of yellow alternative shorts though, it was the home set, with plain black socks the same as those used by Alex McCarthy.
Everton 1 Huddersfield Town 1
Huddersfield have a Bournemouth-esque change kit, but while both clubs have Umbro, the design differs.
West Ham United 0 Wolverhampton Wanderers 1
Manchester City 2 Newcastle United 1
Cardiff City 2 Arsenal 3
Burnley 0 Manchester United 2
A first outing for the pink Manchester United away kit. Pink socks are default, but here a black set were used, with stripes in such a light shade of pink that they almost looked white.
Watford 2 Tottenham Hotspur 1
