The current Premier League season is yet to reach its halfway mark, but fans are already gearing up on what to wear for the next.
After Chelsea’s rumoured kit for the 2023-2024 season was leaked online a couple of weeks back, a new victim has emerged in the form of their rivalling compatriot, Liverpool.
Designed by Nike, the shirt has the usual suspects printed on it – Standard Chartered & Expedia – the club’s primary sponsors.
Red is the dominant colour with a notable change in the collars.
The ever-reliable FootyHeadlines have also confirmed the same, using the words “gym red” to describe the slightly different shade of the colour.
A possible throwback to the home kit from Reebok during the 1998-2000 period, the new top comes with a crew-necked white collar with white trims on the edge of the sleeves.
Simple, sober, and very similar to their current home jersey, supporters won’t be expected to be too excited when the kit is officially launched, given how their season is progressing.
Nevertheless, players and people alike probably wouldn’t mind the uncomplicated prints.
The Reds are presently 9th in the Premier League table after 12 games. They have had the worst start to a season, gathering a mere 16 points after 4 wins, draws & losses. League leaders Arsenal command a massive 15-point lead over the 2019-2020 champions.
As grim as the domestic scene might seem, their European adventures have been much rosier. They have qualified for the round of 16 in the Champions League by securing the 2nd spot in their group.
Barring a 4-0 away drubbing to group winners Napoli, Liverpool have managed to win the rest of the games without much fuss.
Jurgen Klopp’s side looks tired, vulnerable, toothless and without their usual dominating aura.
They lost back-to-back matches against bottom-feeders Nottingham Forrest and Leeds United and now face an unpredictable Tottenham Hotspur during the weekend.
He would like his team to get their mojo back against a strong opposition before the World Cup break.
