Leicester City white back to their best

Given that it was launched during the week, we would expect Leicester City to wear their new 2019-20 kit at home to Chelsea in their final Premier League game today.

They may not, of course, but if and when the new strip sees action it will mark a departure from recent times for the Foxes, as white shorts return.

Throughout the club’s history, the all-blue look has been far less common than blue-white-blue, however the last time they changed was the summer of 2015 and they went on to win the Premier League that season.

As far as we’re aware, the only game in which they’ve worn blue shirts and white shorts since then was the away leg against Atlético Madrid in the Champions League in 2016-17.

It makes sense for Leicester to revert, given that Cardiff City also have adidas and wear all-blue. Gold remains as an accent colour for Brendan Rodgers’ side, while the shirts have a chequered pattern like Egypt had at the World Cup last year. It will be interesting to see if they have blue shorts available for games such as Arsenal away.

Kasper Schmeichel – unless he goes to Old Trafford as David de Gea’s replacement – will have a choice of black, yellow or grey from the adidas Adipro template.
