Four out of five ain’t bad for Fulham
Fulham’s draw at Sheffield United on Sunday, in which both clubs picked up a first point of the season, saw a fourth different kit combination in five games for the Cottagers.
In both of their home games, against Arsenal and Aston Villa, they have been in their usual white-black-white; at Leeds, they donned their red third strip, which was last season’s away; away to Wolves, they wore white change shorts and the clash at Bramall Lane was a first outing for the new away, yellow unusually trimmed with white.
Other possibilities this season are black shorts and socks away to Everton and white shorts/black socks at Chelsea, but it’s difficult to foresee either change kit being mashed up.
Almost certainly, they’ll fail to match the nine combinations of their last Premier League season, 2018-19, when the 2016-17 red and 2017-18 black away kits were used along with the newly launched navy strip. In fact, they could have have had ten distinct looks during that campaign, but opted against wearing white change shorts with the navy shirts at Southampton, despite avoiding shorts-clashes in every other game.
