- Both West Ham United and Leeds United wore their third shirts and shorts with home socks
- Manchester City wore blue alternative shorts with their home shirts
- Aston Villa’s default third kit appeared in the league for the first time – pleasingly paired with the matching goalkeeper strip
- Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio wore his salmon kit for the first time
As usual, Matt Smith has rated the kit choices of the away teams, with the running table on the right:
West Ham 3, Leeds 1, Arsenal 1, Man City 3, Aston Villa 3, Wolves 3, Fulham 3, Leicester 3, Sheff Utd 1, Liverpool 3
Leeds get a point for trying with the home socks but they’ve worn all white at St James’ Park before and should have again. They even tried to make out they were doing everyone a favour, when it was obvious they weren’t.
City’s alternative shorts are one of the season’s highlights, from their plainness and shade to their overall effectiveness. Wish they’d worn them at Old Trafford recently.
