The primary kit was unchanged from the previous season. Arsenal would win the league for the first time since 1953.
Long-sleeved version.
Away to Ipswich Town in the league cup and at home to Southampton on Boxing Day, red shorts were worn - the latter due the pitch being covered in snow.
Once again, yellow was favoured for the change kit.
Arsenal reached the FA Cup final, beating Liverpool 2-1 after extra time to complete the double. Having lost the toss for colours, Arsenal changed but the short-sleeved shirts had blue collars and cuffs, unlike the long-sleeved versions.
In November, Arsenal travelled to face Blackpool, whose tangerine home shirts clashed with both red and yellow. The Gunners were given special permission to wear the previous navy change kit.

The new home kit was an evolution from the previous one, with a mottled effect on the body and a smart wrapover crew neck. Football league sleeve patches were now in use too.
Long-sleeved version.
The change kit remained for a third season but with two alterations - the addition of FL sleeve patches and a change to a more modern adidas number style.
The home shorts were worn away to Sheffield United, Southampton and Sunderland - long sleeves were chosen for all three matches.
The new goalkeeper shirt took its design cues from the home strip, while navy was employed well as a secondary colour.
Away shorts and socks.

A blue edition of the shirt - trimmed in black with no adidas stripes - was worn against Norwich City.
