Arsenal


For a more in depth review on the Arsenal home and away kit, please go here.

I am not a fan of the sleeves on the home shirt, but I do like the traditional red colour with white going across the top in typical Arsenal colours. There is also a nice pattern with the shirt that looks pretty cool.

Home Shirt score: 75/100


As for the away shirt, I do prefer it as I think the colours look nice mixing in the darker shades of purple with navy blue and the blurred pattern on the sleeves are pretty neat too. There is also a nice pattern in the chest area of the shirt similar to the home kit, but slightly different which adds to its class.

Away Shirt score: 76/100

 


The 3rd shirt is really interesting in terms of the colour. Never before in the Premier League has any team worn biscay green, until now. Without doubt the best of the 3 new strips that Arsenal has released this season.

The colour looks awesome and the black detail all over the shirt contrasts perfectly with the biscay green. The polo collar also looks great with this kit too.

Third Shirt Score: 91/100 


Bournemouth


Umbro who design a lot of the championship clubs as well as some premier league clubs such as Bournemouth have done a pretty neat job this season. They have the standard umbro logo on the sleeves which look pretty cool.

As for the home shirt itself, I am very impressed with the colour scheme and how the Mansion sponsor fits in perfectly with the design of the shirt, especially since there are vertical red and black stripes going all across the front of the shirt. All the details mesh together perfectly and I love the gold trimmings that are just above the umbro logo, the badge logo and on the collar area. The home shirt looks very classy.

Home Shirt score: 88/100

 


As for the away shirt, once again the Mansion sponsor meshes well with the overall 2 tone vertical white strips going all across the shirt. I think the Bournemouth badge on the away shirt could of been more colourful and the gold trimmings found on the home shirt may have worked better too, but unfortunately they are not found this time around.

Away Shirt Score: 86/100

 


Brighton and Hove Albion


The home shirt features vertical blue and white thick stripes with plain white sleeves. Very simplistic in design and for me, more could of been done especially around the sleeve area. I like the red colour Nike swoosh which fits perfectly, and the American Express writing across the centre of the shirt also works very well too.

Home Shirt Score: 76/100

 


As for the away shirt, I actually think it is OK. The green colour is very nice and with mostly white detail for the nike swoosh and American Express writing as well as the blue and white Brighton badge, this colour scheme works very well indeed.

Both solid kits, and fans will certainly wear the shirts with pride.

Away Shirt Score: 70/100

 

 


Burnley


Only a new home kit announced so far, and I always find myself getting confused between Burnley, West Ham and Aston Villa as the blue and maroon are synonymous with all those clubs.

The thing about this shirt that I am not impressed with from the get go is the shirt sponsor which for me dominates the shirt and not for the better. As you can see from the image above, there is a giant poker chip with writing of the sponsor which takes up far too much space on the shirt. It is poorly designed in my opinion.

Other than that, the colour scheme of maroon and sky blue works as well as it ever did.

Home Shirt Score: 65/100


Cardiff City


Both the home and away shirts are pretty traditional and basic kits in my humble opinion. The home shirt is essentially 2 shades of blue horizontal stripes all over, with white detail showing off Visit Malaysia sponsor, club badge and adidas logo. Actually, it’s growing on me as I publish this post….

Home Shirt Score: 73/100

 

 


The away shirt is almost the opposite colour scheme of the home edition. Featuring white and grey horizontal pattern (similar to stripes but not quite), and blue details this time – again it is growing on me. Better than last season’s Cardiff City kits, that’s for sure. 2 pretty solid kits.

Away Shirt Score 75/100


Chelsea 


For a more in depth review on the Chelsea home and away kit, please go here.

I really like the design pattern on the home shirt with the all navy blue colour and thin red and white stripes going across the shirt makes it look pretty snazzy indeed. All the shirt sponsor and club badge and Nike swoosh logo blends perfectly.

Home Shirt Score: 90/100

 

 


An all bright yellow kit with blue around the collar area as well as blue details for the club badge, Yokohoma Tyres Sponsor and blue Nike swoosh creates a harmonic blend that works great. I like both the kits!

Away Shirt Score: 83/100


Crystal Palace 


The red and blue vertical stripes with mix of patterns and yellow trimming around the neckline and bottom of sleeves looks absolutely stunning. This is easily one of the best looking home kits I have seen for a while. The shirt sponsor is a little off if I am being honest, but the overall colour scheme and design of the shirt saves the day for me.

Home Shirt Score: 93/100

 


As for the away shirt, I am not so impressed, but then it was always going to be difficult to top the home kit! The red and blue diagonal stripe is unique, and if the sponsor of the shirt didn’t look so awkward, this away shirt would be far better. Puma have made a great effort with these shirts. It scores slightly lower only because of the shirt sponsor design not quite working.

Overal score: 85/100

 


Everton 


Wow, wow, wow. I am blown away by both home and away shirts. They both look absolutely awesome. Easily the best Everton strip I have ever seen in my life and that is no understatement.

The home shirt is simply a few shades of dark blue all over with white badge, white umbro logos on sleeves and chest area, and SportsPesa shirt sponsor too. The umbro sleeve design is universal across all their kits this season from what I can tell, and just like the Bournemouth kit looks amazing, so no need to change the sleeve logos. Even the buttons on the collar look really smart giving it a polo collar feel!

Home Shirt Score: 92/100


The away shirt is quite staggering. All black this time, albeit a few shades that blend perfectly, with pink umbro logos, SportsPesa logo and club badge. Works absolutely perfectly.

I almost forgot to mention the Angry Birds sponsorship on 1 of the sleeve areas too, for both strips, which I find a bit strange. I know Angry Birds was all the rage about 5 years ago, but is it really still relevant today? Perhaps readers out there can shed more light on the Angry Birds current state of affairs.

Difficult to mark this season’s Everton kits down!

Away Shirt Score: 91/100


Fulham


Home shirt looks OK with white and black colour scheme and Fulham badge with FFC in red. This is growing on me and looks solid for a team that are returning to the Premier League after a few years.

Home Shirt Score: 70/100

 

 

 


The away shirt looks OK too, although it doesn’t pull up any trees for me. I feel adidas could of improved their efforts on both shirts, especially the away shirt. Both strips are smart enough, and no doubt Fulham faithful will wear with pride.

Away Shirt Score: 65/100

 

 


Huddersfield 


Once again, umbro have produced yet another solid set of home and away shirts, this time for Huddersfield. Simplistic in design. The home shirt features blue and white vertical stripes, with the away kit mirroring the pattern, only this time in black and red.

Where the details for sponsor, club badge and umbro logos are all in white on both kits, except for the shirt sponsor being in black on the home shirt, and it all blends perfectly.

Home Shirt Score: 75/100


one criticism I have is the club badge, which I feel they could of done more with. It is more like a logo than a club badge, so I am not sure why Huddersfield opted for this strategy. I do like both kits though and feel they both have a strong but modern day traditional look about them.

Away Shirt Score: 77/100

 


Leicester City 


Solid enough home shirt with the usual royal blue colour and white detail mixed in. I think Leicester City fans will be happy enough, though adidas have stayed safe with their design.

Home Shirt Score: 78/100

 

 

 

 


The away strip is pretty cool though. I feel adidas have excelled with this shirt with a very interesting medium to dark grey and black striped pattern almost mirroring the pattern on the King Power stadium pitch! The orange adidas, logo with stripes across the shoulder area and badge really adds a touch of class and white shirt sponsor works well too.

For me, the home kit is solid enough, though no great shakes, but the away kit really takes things to a new level.

Away Shirt Score: 81/100


Liverpool 


For a more in depth review on the Liverpool home, away and third kit, please go here.

The home shirt is typical Liverpool as you would always expect, and always a firm favourite within the football world. I especially like the polo neck look with buttons which gives it a smart appearance.

The white writing for the shirt sponsor works well as does the white NB logo (New Balance) and club badge. Interestingly enough, the badge is more of a logo similar to what Huddersfield have tried to do, only it looks stronger for Liverpool and maybe that’s partly down to the recent history of this club. That said, I just think New Balance have done a better job with the logo in this case.

Home Shirt Score: 91/100


The away shirt really stands out as one of the best shirts this season with the several tones of purple and orange details. It has grown on me, and certainly a brave choice by the club, which I think they have pulled off.

Away Shirt Score: 90/100

 

 


The third shirt is a reminder of the late 1980’s inspired by the old grey kits they use to wear from those days. Again, I think it looks really snazzy.

Like the Everton kits, it’s hard to pick too many holes in this season’s kits.

Third Shirt Score: 90/100

 

 


Manchester City 


For a more in depth review on the Manchester City home and away kit, please go here.

The home shirt is very similar to last seasons, but the sleeve pattern has really added something that bit extra this time around. I really like what Nike have done here and the sky blue colour really looks impressive against backdrop of the club badge, shirt sponsor and nike swoosh.

Home Shirt Score: 84/100

 


The away shirt is very nice indeed. Essentially black with vertical yellow and sky blue pinstripes make this kit stand out. The shirt sponsor fits well and nike swoosh and club badge likewise. I would say this away strip is one of the best in the Premier League this year.

Away Shirt Score: 92/100

 

 


Machester Utd 


For a more in depth review on the Manchester Utd home and away kit, please go here.

The red and black works well for me and reminds me of Man Utd kits of the late 1980’s. I am not sure about the horizontal black stripes towards the lower part of the home shirt and again, the shirt sponsor doesn’t quite work on the home kit. Having seen the highlights of the opening game of the season where Man Utd wore this red shirt with the black shorts, I like it a lot more than at first glance!

Home Shirt Score: 88/100

 

 


By contrast, the shirts sponsor, adidas logo and club bade blend perfectly on the away shirt with the gold colour working well with the dark blue. I think the away shirt is pretty strong and Man Utd fans should be happy enough.

Away Shirt Score: 85/100

 

 


Newcastle Utd 


Puma have done a solid job with the design of the home shirt with the exception of the shirt sponsor which again looks awkward. Something doesn’t quite work here.

Home Shirt Score: 84/100

 

 

 

 


I do like the away kit as well and this time red and black hoops which wok really well and I love the puma logo in gold here. Strangely enough, the shirt sponsor on the away shirt works in gold with this colour scheme and maybe they could of used the same colour on the home shirt or at least something similar.

Away Shirt Score: 86/100

 

 


Finally the third kit is a solid enough effort with a turquoise blue and this time black for the badge, puma logo and shirt sponsor, again working better than the home shirt in my opinion.

Third Shirt Score: 86/100

 

 

 


Southampton 


Very similar home shirt to what is typically associated with this club. I love the fact that the white vertical stripes don’t go all the way to the collar area and this leaves for all red around the neck and shoulders. The black trim at the top of the neck and bottom of sleeves looks smart and the club badge fits well. The Virgin Media logo also works quite well.

Home Shirt Score: 88/100

 


As for the away strip, I quite like it actually. It’s colourful and stands out without looking tacky. Under Armour, the shirt manufacturer have done a very good job with both these kits. One of the best away strips in the Premier League this season without a doubt.

Away Shirt Score: 91/100

 


Tottenham Hotspur 


The home shirt has a Man Utd feel to it with the stripes at the bottom of the shirt though I think the navy blue works well with the white elsewhere. The red AIA sponsor looks good and the Spurs logo and Nike swoosh look good too. It’s not ground breaking by any stretches, but a solid effort overall.

Home Shirt Score: 72/100

 

 


The away shirt is a little different. I like the navy blue with lighter shades of blue patterns adorning the sleeves. Gives it a snazzy feel not too dissimilar to design of Manchester City’s Home shirt. Bit plain on the front of the shirt, but solid enough.

Away Shirt Score: 73/100

 

 

 


Watford 


The home shirt looks really nice. yellow and black vertical stripes with red shirt sponsor and adidas logo and badge blending exceptionally. I love it. One of the best Watford home kits I have ever seen and adidas can be proud of this effort.

Home Shirt Score: 90/100

 

 

 


The away shirt is pretty good too. The shirt features different shades of green with the shirt sponsor, adidas logo and club badge once again blending well. Love the fluorescent green trim around the neckline, as well as the 3 adidas stripes across the shoulders and adidas logo too, all of which are in same colour! This design and colour scheme is up there with the best of away kits, but for me the home shirt looks even better!

Away Shirt Score: 81/100


West Ham Utd


The home shirt has the traditional maroon colour with subtle horizontal stripes going across which blend beautifully.Love the light blue trim around bottom of sleeves and neckline collar area.The badge, umbro logo and betway sponsor fits wonderfully too. Really nice effort once again from umbro, who might just be leading the way these days on kits.

Home Shirt Score: 84/100

 


The away shirt looks good too with navy blue all over and once again betway sponsor in white. This time the club badge and umbro logo on front of shirt is yellow and I think it works well.The trim on the collar as well as the umbro logos across the bottom of the sleeve are in traditional West Ham home colours, maroon and work well enough.

Away Shirt Score: 85/100

 


Wolverhampton Wanderers 


Really like the gold silky look to the home shirt with the black shirt sponsor, adidas logo and club badge. Looks fantastic and the black trim around the colour and bottom of the sleeves along with the 3 black adidas stripes across the shoulders gives an overall stylish appearance.

Home Shirt Score: 89/100

 

 


The away shirt doesn’t disappoint either, this time in all white, with subtle grey colour stripes going horizontally across the shirt in typical adidas fashion. I like that the Wolves badge is same gold and black colour as per the home shirt and in fact the adidas logo, shirt sponsor and 3 black stripes across the shoulder are all kept uni formally black just like the home shirt. Very good effort here from adidas.

Away Shirt Score: 90/100

 


Best Premier League Kits 2018/19 – And The Worst!


Hopefully, you have enjoyed reading my overall ratings for all the Premier League team kits for 2018/19 season. I have scored Liverpool and Everton extremely high with the likes of Southampton, Wolves, Man Utd, Newcastle Utd, Watford, West Ham, Bournemouth and Crystal Palace also impressive.

To purchase your favourite team’s kit, please click here. 

Whilst none of the clubs’ shirts are tragic, the worst kits for me this season are Burnley and Fulham. I didn’t think the Spurs or Arsenal kits were anything out of the ordinary, although Arsenal’s third strip really catches the eye.
