Fulham 1 Watford 1

2018-2019-Fulham-Watford-Craven-Cottage-01

Having played four of their first five games at home, Watford were short of opportunities to ‘do a Watford’ – wear their away kit with no clash – but they put that right at Craven Cottage, premiering their green adidas Condivo design.

Burnley 4 Bournemouth 0

2018-2019-Burnley-Bournemouth-Turf-Moor-01

Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic had worn yellow up until now but switched to black/grey.

Cardiff City 0 Manchester City 5

2018-2019-Cardiff-City-Manchester-City-Cardiff-Stadium-01

With navy and purple change options, City will be wearing sky blue against royal blue teams this year, though white alternative socks were worn instead of navy.

Crystal Palace 0 Newcastle United 0

2018-2019-Crystal-Palace-Newcastle-Selhurst-Park-01

Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey had worn green in the five games before this, but a possible reason for his change was that Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka couldn’t wear his favoured purple as it would have clashed with Palace’s outfield kit and green is his back-up colour.

Dubravka’s team-mates wore their white change shorts, increasing contrast between the two teams.

Leicester City 3 Huddersfield Town 1

2018-2019-Leicester-City-Huddersfield-King-Power-01

Having come on as a sub for Ben Hamer in Huddersfield’s third game, goalkeeper Jonas Lössl has now worn four different kits in as many matches – pink, yellow, purple and now green.

Liverpool 3 Southampton 0

2018-2019-Liverpool-Southampton-Anfield-01

Southampton were in their default away kit, having worn black shorts and socks at Crystal Palace.

Manchester United 1 Wolverhampton Wanderers 1

West Ham United 0 Chelsea 0

Arsenal 2 Everton 0

2018-2019-Arsenal-Everton-Emirates-01

Everton have worn all-blue away to Arsenal ever since shorts-clash rules were introduced in the mid-70s and have continued to do so even though the Premier League allows teams to have the same colour shorts.

The club sell blue alternative shorts and socks in their online store, but instead they opted to give an outing to their away kit – a ringer for last year’s Arsenal third.
