Things of note this weekend:

  • Bournemouth gave their change kit a first outing at Southampton – the sleeve pattern is vaguely reminiscent of their 1992-93 Matchwinner design
  • Sheffield United wore their white shirt in a third different combination – having worn white shorts and the red home socks at Chelsea, this time they used the black home shorts and the 2016-18 home socks at Everton – though they proved to be a lucky charm
  • Ederson and Bernd Leno both wore their dark green goalkeeper kits for the first time in the league, while Rui Patricio was in all-black
  • Brighton had to don their green third kit – last season’s away – at Newcastle. Goalkeeper Mathew Ryan had worn green in the previous five games and so he was forced to switch to yellow, another carry-over from 2018-19
  • Manchester United wore their ‘sand’-coloured change kit, featuring a pattern based on the mosaics of Manchester’s Northern Quarter, for the first time
  • Liverpool changed to their solid red alternative socks at Chelsea

A consistently pleasing set of choices pretty much across the board this weekend, with only Sheffield United (again) letting down the collective. Digging out some old black socks was almost as nonsensical as not wearing their stripes, it illustrates that somebody is having a laugh at the world’s expense.

Wouldn’t it be nice if Norwich retained their approach to using yellow and green? However, you sense they won’t if their U21s are anything to go by – playing at Portsmouth last week in the EFL Trophy, they decided to wear the all-red away kit. Of course, that created a socks clash and they ended up wearing Pompey’s purple change versions. We really wouldn’t want to extend this table to other leagues and competitions…
