Premier League Home Kits Ranked! From 20 to 11.

Updated: Sep 10

While fans gear up for the new season, club shops (albeit online) are looking to sell out the latest strip. Here we have some fun and take a look at the classics and clangers from this year's Premier League home kits. We start with positions 20 to 11, see the top half here.


20. Wolverhampton Wanderers - Wolves have been looking increasingly attractive on the pitch but this one is a miss for us. The tyre tracks coupled with a far too intrusive sponsor is enough to condemn this one to the bottom of the kit league. It's a shame because we love the gold and black colours.

Wolves home kit is just too busy for us.

19. Burnley - Claret and blue should be a classic colour scheme but the sponsor's logo is about 40% of the fabric. Not that we'd have the guts to tell gaffer Sean Dyche that we didn't like it, by the way.

The sponsor's logo ruins this vintage effort from Burnley.

18. Southampton - Saints kit launches have become legendary. With their parody of Fyre festival last year, and a cracking 8-bit gaming video this year. Sadly the shirt itself doesn't live up to the billing. The sash could be the template for a gem but once again the sponsor's logo bosses the shirt like Danny Ings bosses centre-backs. Their 2010/2011 anniversary shirt (see below gallery) featuring a sash was a masterpiece.


17. Newcastle United - The Magpies have had bigger fish to fry than their shirt over the last season. A failed takeover big from Saudi investment being the big news story of the summer. The classic black and white striped template could have been enough to raise a few smiles in the North East but is ruined by...you guessed it, a hideous sponsor's logo.

Not so house of fun.

16. Arsenal - There are signs from the Charity Shield (old money) that Mikel Arteta is building something beautiful in North London. The new gaffer will be hoping Aubameyang will sign a new deal and hypnotise defenders. Failing that, the pattern on the shirt might have the same effect. We much preferred last year's classy effort.

15. West Ham United - There's not too much wrong with the Hammers' new shirt. Except that it's not that new. The Londoners have sported very similar threads in both 2015-16 and 2012-13. It'd be nice to see a splash more excitement, although the fans might take 15th in any league they can.

14. Aston Villa - Last week it was reported that Villa had seen a 50% increase in shirt sales since ditching their bookie sponsors for Cazoo. It's difficult to decide if that is driven by the design of the short or the fatigue to bookmakers. Although the style of this one leaves us a bit cold, Villains will be hoping to see Jack Grealish dazzling defenders (and then falling to the ground) in it.


13. West Bromwich Albion - The Baggies are back in the big time and we're fairly keen on the bold stripes that Puma has given them. Unfortunately they clash with the stripes on the badge, and it's hard to read the sponsor, fortunately, they have a giant boiler as a mascot to help. Ideal.

A bold striped look is enough to achieve mid-table for WBA.

12. Tottenham Hotspur - We've all seen behind the scenes at Spurs thanks to Amazon's All or Nothing series. The latest addition to the dressing room is this snazzy Nike shirt. Quite whether it will turn the players into a 'bunch of c****' like Jose wants remains to be seen.

Spurs new shirt is neither 'All' nor 'Nothing' for us.

11. Leicester City - Much like the on-pitch Foxes, there's some nice touches here. The gold trim is a nice throwback to the Steve Walsh era and the Adidas stripes look great but there's something about the collar that feels uncomfortable. As you can tell from the strange pose that defender Çağlar Söyüncü is striking at the launch.

Leicester's defender Söyüncü looks like he might need a size or two bigger.
