- The set of fixtures played in midweek March 2-4 saw Manchester United wear their third kit in its default format in the league for the first time (it has twice been used in Europe). This brings their total number of PL combinations to 11 this season
As usual, Matt Smith has rated the kit selections of the away teams, with the up-to-date table at the bottom of the article:
Wolves 0, Leicester 1, Aston Villa 3, Everton 3, Chelsea 3, Tottenham 1.
And we thought Wolves having no alternative old gold shorts was bad…Leicester and Spurs refusing to mix and match or, in Tottenham’s case, just wear yellow, resulted in dropped points.
Matt’s ratings: Arsenal 3, Southampton 3, Wolves 3, Leicester 3, Newcastle 3, Fulham 3, Man United 3, Crystal Palace 3, Everton 3, Leeds 3, Southampton 3.
Feeling almost generous this week with a clean sweep of maximums as there appeared to be a genuine effort to adhere to what’s right. Good to see United remembering to swap shorts for the Manchester Derby, where it should always be an unwritten rule.
