Premier League kits 2019-20: Find out the latest strips to be worn by Man United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and all other teams for next season

  • Liverpool and Chelsea released new home kits at back end of 2018-19 season
  • Bournemouth have also unveiled a new home kit ready for the new campaign
  • Sportsmail will assess EVERY new Premier League kit as they are released 

SUMMER ESSENTIALS

They can range from the bizarre to the beautiful and from the most basic to the innovative, but it’s never dull waiting to see the latest Premier League kit releases.

Granted, it feels like each year trying to buy them all for one team puts a strain on the bank balance, but which ones are worth the expense and which are ones to avoid?

Sportsmail will keep you up to date with all the kit releases from every Premier League side throughout the summer as well as give our verdict on each strip’s design…

BOURNEMOUTH

Home kit

Good effort from Umbro. Not only have they managed to keep the tradition of a Bournemouth kit true with black and red stripes but they have managed to make it fresh.

The Cherries’ recent offerings had become a little stale, but with red sleeves and a stitched in faded red stripe going across the kit this should keep the fans content ahead of a fifth consecutive Premier League campaign.

Bournemouth have moved towards a more red based home kit for the 2019-20 campaign

CHELSEA

Home kit

Swing and a miss. There is a fine line to be trodden on when trying to design a kit with a crazy pattern in the shading.

An example of how to do it right comes with Mexico’s 1998 World Cup kit, and even they had the advantage of the fashion crime amnesty being in force for much of the 1990s.

The Blues though have no such defence and even Eden Hazard looks like he is thinking he would rather be elsewhere while wearing it judging by the club’s promotional pictures.

HOME KIT VERDICT: 4/10

CRYSTAL PALACE

Home kit

No thrills stuff, right? To the neutral it’s a standard Crystal Palace kit with red and blue stripes – but Eagles supporters may have noticed a subtle difference elsewhere.

The yellow trim which has been on their shirts since they were promoted to the top flight for the 2013-14 season has now gone and has been replaced by white, which is included as a stylish stripe across blue sections of the shirt.

Otherwise yes it is just your standard Crystal Palace shirt. Still, Puma have tried to do something different and they have proven you don’t have to be radical to make notable changes.

HOME KIT VERDICT: 7/10

LIVERPOOL

Home kit 

Liverpool have released their new 2019-20 home kit and while there is little surprise that it is red, there is a return to the strip that has not been seen since 1984.

Pin stripes are back in vogue at Anfield having last featured on the home kit when they lifted their fourth European Cup. 

It would have been nicer if the stripes went the full way up the kit, but maybe the idea of falling short helped blend the old design with a modern concept.

All jokes aside, this is smart strip and a good offering from New Balance in the final year of their Reds deal. 

HOME KIT VERDICT: 8/10

Six days to go – Latest Arsenal Europa League final news and updates

Published

There are now just six days to go before Arsenal and Chelsea face off in the Europa League final and a stream of reports are coming in thick and fast covering everything from team selection, fan issues, UEFA incompetence and so forth and we will now be doing a daily update of what is being reported.

Arsenal has sold just 3500 tickets out of their measly 6000 allocation with the rest being returned to UEFA. The ridiculous cost of getting to Baku has resulted in many fans being excluded from a major European trophy thanks to the utter incompetence of European footballs governing body.

Azerbaijan are playing the victim following Henrikh Mkhitaryan correct decision to not risk his safety. Azerbaijan’s ambassador to the UK has accused Mkhitaryan of “trying to make a political statement” by declining to visit a country that is effectively at war with his own nation.

Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi has made it clear the whole team wants to win the Europa League for Mkhitaryan following his decision to miss the final due to security concerns.

“It’s a shame for him not to be there, especially as he has often played on the way to the final, but our team has that in mind: We also want to win for Micki,” Mustafi told Kicker.

Arsenal fans have launched an online petition to have the Europa League final moved from Baku to Wembley Stadium. The reasoning behind the petition is the exclusion of Mkhitaryan making Baku an unfit location to hold a major European final

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has also come out in support of Mkhitaryan saying “We know it is a big shame but we respect his decision. It is not easy for him to go there because of political problems. It is a big shame but now we have one more motivation to win”

Former Arsenal legend David Seaman has urged Unai Emery not to pick Petr Cech over Bernd Leno for the final because he feels that the German is simply the better player.

David Seaman tells Unai Emery to copy Arsene Wenger with big Arsenal decision

Published

Cech has been the regular goalkeeper in the Europa League for Arsenal since losing his spot as the Premier League No 1 to Bernd Leno midway through the group stage.

The 37-year-old is set to retire after Wednesday’s match in Baku and reports claim he is set to become a sporting director at former club and final opponents Chelsea this summer.

That has led to many Arsenal fans claiming Cech should not play, though the former Czech Republic international has tweeted saying he is completely focused on the match ahead.

Seaman is surprised Cech’s proposed new job has been leaked but says he would have picked Leno in the final before hearing the news.

And Seaman referred to how former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger picked him ahead of Richard Wright in the 2002 FA Cup final despite not playing in previous rounds.

“Well it was announced and I was thinking ‘woah, who’s let this out? Who’s actually leaked this?’,” Seaman told talkSPORT.

“If it’s Chelsea then is it mind games? To make Arsenal think ‘is he going to be thinking about Chelsea when he’s playing?’

“Or maybe Arsenal have leaked it because they might not even be playing him, and use that as an excuse?

“It’s a strange one because there was a poll last night and I think it was about 60-40 wanted Leno to play.

“I know Cech has played all the games but in a final like that, especially against Chelsea.

“Arsenal need to win this game to get into the Champions League.

“For me, you play your strongest team.

“If that means Leno plays then that’s what I would do.

“I know Arsene Wenger did it with me, he did it to Richard Wright.

“He played all the FA Cup games and then played me in the final.”

Arsenal on the verge of landing one of their top targets

Arsenal is set to make a move for long term target Bournemouth star Ryan Fraser after the Europa League final according to reports in the media today.

Now, we have been hearing these sort of rumours for a while but what I like about this latest report is that it comes from the Independent and not the likes of the Daily Star or the Sun.

While I do not trust the high brow papers too much I certainly do more than the tabloids and I have to say that I do find it credible that Arsenal will be tabling a bid for the 25-year-old.

Fraser has been brilliant for Bournemouth this season racking up 14 assists in the Premier League with only Chelsea’s Eden Hazard doing better.

Manchester United was apparently interested in the Scottish international but the Independent is claiming that the Red Devils will not be pursuing the playmaker despite what some have been claiming.

Bournemouth wants £30 Million for Fraser, however, Arsenal are said to be confident that they can get the figure lowered because the player wants a move and only has a year left on his contract.

One final thought, Fraser has spoken previously of a move to Arsenal and the speculation about him being linked with a move to the Emirates.

“I am not going to lie, it is very nice,” Fraser said

“It means you are doing something right. They are a huge club, a massive club.

“When you see your name thrown around you always think to yourself that you are a Bournemouth player and you try to do well.

“I am not going to lie, you do feel good, especially when it’s a massive club.”

Of all the rumours currently going around this is the one that I do believe is real and I am now in a position where I would actually be surprised if we fail to get Fraser to put pen to paper.
