Premier League kit-tracker, gameweeks 26-28

Apologies for the delay in getting this done – the thought of doing all the kits with the Heads Up logo meant we kept postponing the task.

However, some better news is that, very soon, we will undertake a poll to determine the best kit worn in the Premier League this season, featuring all 94 combinations that have seen action to date!

Once again, Matt Smith’s rankings follow each round, with an up-to-date Away Kits Table at the bottom.

Gameweek 26

  • All teams wore patches with the Heads Up logo on their right sleeves, in place of the usual Premier League patch. Tottenham Hotspur, who don’t have a sleeve sponsor, were the only side with the PL patch. Referees had the Heads Up markings on their chests – right breast or centre, depending on whether or not they’re on the Fifa panel
  • Everton wore the Everton in The Community logo in place of sponsors Sportpesa

West Ham 3

Bournemouth drop a couple of points [note: the first time they haven’t been awarded three points] for continually churning out change kits with dark shorts. Burnley lose all three for forgetting they have an away strip and choosing a third outfit that created a shorts clash.

Gameweek 27

  • Brighton wore their black away shorts with the green third shirt and socks at Sheffield United, creating a shorts clash

The completely unnecessary changes by Newcastle and Everton – two clubs with a history of sticking to traditional colours as much as possible – were somewhat worrying.

Not sure where Brighton’s white shorts for their green strip have disappeared to is a mystery, but they’d have avoided a shorts clash at Bramall Lane.

While not being a massive fan of Man City’s fluorescent explosion, it was the best choice for contrast on a February evening in Leicester.

Gameweek 28

  • A throwback of sorts from Manchester United as David de Gea wore the same colour shorts and socks as his team-mates, albeit with different trim – in 2016-17, de Gea’s kit featured the home socks and alternative home shorts but was never worn when United wore red-black-black

Chelsea consistently wear their away kits at Bournemouth, it’s still not right. Southampton’s choice of change strip wasn’t totally wrong, but white would have been more right. Wolves not using their alternative old gold shorts won’t ever be right.
