A new Premier League season kicks off this weekend and, along with a batch of new signings and newly promoted teams, comes a collection of fresh kits. Below we rank the Premier League kits 20/21 from worst to best.
Worst Premier League kits 20/21
20 – Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace have released the worst kit of the season by a comfortable margin. A bizarre mish-mash of ideas results in an odd-looking shirt that feels bland. To add to the boredom, the away and third shirts are the same design, simply in white and black. At least Eagles fans can take some comfort in the fact that Eberechi Eze will be wearing it but that doesn’t prevent it being the worst of the Premier League kist 20/21.
South London & Proud.

19 – West Brom
Never underestimate a sponsors’ ability to ruin a good shirt. The combination of Ideal Boilers and bizarrely spaced stripes makes this kit a bit of an eyesore. Based on a vintage Albion kit, this one may appeal to their fans more than the average neutral, and they’ll be hoping they can secure Premier League safety in their new threads.
Thoughts on our #NewStripes for the @premierleague with inspiration from the 1992/93 design?

18 – Aston Villa
There’s a fine line between minimalistic and boring and Villa find themselves on the wrong side of it with this shirt. Nothing offensive in this design, also nothing inspiring. Immediately forgettable. Villa fans won’t care as long as a captain Jack Grealish gets to try it on for size.

17 – Sheffield United
Adidas have supplied Sheffield United with another off the shelf template kit. That being said, it’s not half bad. Let down by a messy sponsor logo, this one falls into the inoffensive and forgettable category, just in front of Villa in the Premier League kits 20/21 rankings.
Ready for more. ⚡️

16 – Man United
The new Manchester United kit looks like it was made with fabric from a bus seat. Odd, and ultimately pretty dull, however, it gets some points for at least trying something a little different. United will be hoping the only bus they are on come May has an open-top. In this new strip, they will blend in quite nicely.
🔍 The devil is in the detail.

15 – Newcastle United
Black, white, and stripey. Lovely stuff, at least until a big blue sponsor was slapped on the front. With a more subtle logo, this would be a decent shirt, as it is it’s just a missed opportunity. Newcastle fans will, however, be buoyed by the signings of Ryan Fraser and Callum Wilson.

The kit will be worn for the first time in our season finale against Liverpool on Sunday and will be available for supporters to purchase on the same day.

14 – Fulham
The play-off winners will be hoping they can establish themselves in the Premier League after bouncing back at the first time of asking. If The Cottagers are hoping for a middle of the road season of lower mid-table mediocrity, then this is the kit to achieve it in. Nothing to dislike, nothing to shout about either.
Tailored for the Premier League. 🧵

13 – Everton
Everton have had an excellent transfer window, bringing in James Rodriguez, Allan, and Abdoulaye Doucoure and will be eyeing a top 6 finish this season under Carlo Ancelotti. However, they will be doing so in this extremely plain number. Vibrant blue with chevrons on the shoulders, Everton fans will hope that the new signings prove more inspired than the shirt design.

12 – Leeds United
Leeds are back in the top flight after an absence of 16 years and look set to stay with the signing of Spanish international Rodrigo. Marco Bielsa’s men finished top of the Championship last term, and will surely be an exciting addition to the Premier League. The club have also reunited with kit supplier Adidas, producing this minimalistic new design. It’s bold, it’s simple, it’s innocuous.
Ready for Leeds.

11 – Tottenham
Spurs’ neat new home shirt has a simple elegance. The yellow trim on the neck is a throwback to older kits, whilst the abstract pattern adds a modern twist. It’s not dissimilar to recent kits, so doesn’t make the top ten. With the return of Harry Kane, Mourinho and co will be aiming for a top-four finish in their new threads this season.
New season. Fresh look.

10 – Burnley
Burnley’s new home strip is based on a shirt from 100 years ago. Simple stylings with classy touches, this is a nice kit. It would rank higher than tenth in our list of Premier League kits 20/21 if not for the obnoxiously large sponsor logo slap bang in the middle of the shirt.

9 – Chelsea
Chelsea have been wearing their new kit for so long it barely feels new. Simple, elegant, and classy, with dark blue trim, its a marked improvement on their 19/20 kit. Having completed the signings of Ben Chilwell, Timo Werner, and Kai Havertz, blues fans will expect to be competing towards the top of the table in this stylish new shirt.

8 – Man City
In 2019 Manchester City signed a massive 10 year deal with kit supplier Puma, thought to be worth up to £65m a season. The second year of the partnership has produced a striking new shirt, simple in its touches, with a mosaic pattern. This one strikes the right tone between flair and class. The same can’t be said for their third kit…
From the City, by the City, for the City.

7 – Leicester City
The Foxes will be competing in the Europa League this season, having slipped out of the Champions League places towards the back end of the last campaign. Brendan Rodgers’ side will be doing so in this elegant new home shirt, with a subtle pattern, gold bands, and a tasteful sponsor. Lovely.

6 – Southampton
Southampton have had a string of utterly forgettable kits in recent years. This one, however, breaks that tradition. The sash is back to commemorate 135 years since the clubs’ formation. Saints fans will hope for a top-half finish in this classy new strip.

5 – Arsenal
Following in United’s footsteps, The Gunners have released a new shirt with a pattern you might expect to see on the Central Line. It’s a little odd but in a good way. With nods towards Arsenal’s classic bruised banana shirt, this could be a real sleeper hit, particularly if Arteta’s men can build on their recent FA Cup win and secure Champions League football.
Fresh look, making moves ✊

4 – West Ham
The Hammers redesigned badge perfectly encapsulates the history of the legendary east London club. Whilst reportedly in turmoil off the pitch, West Ham will be looking sharp on it with this classic shirt for the 20/21 campaign. Celebrating 125 years, the Irons will want to steer well clear of another relegation battle this term.

3 – Wolves
Wolves’ bold new shirt contrasts the clubs’ traditional gold with smart black trim and a unique pattern that takes inspiration from the crest. Adidas have been guilty of providing clubs with off the shelf designs in the past, however, this design is unique. Fans of the midlands club will be excited to see new record signing Fabio Silva pull on the new shirt at Molineux.

2 – Liverpool
Liverpool decided to ditch New Balance for Nike last year and, after a short legal dispute, the deal was signed to bring the famous swoosh to Anfield. Nike’s first go at a Liverpool kit is so close to perfect. This kit oozes class. The white and teal collar reflects the colors of the original Liverpool badge, whilst the minimalist stylings of the crest and sponsor logo ensure a beautifully refined shirt. This would be number one if not for the completely unnecessary white strip down the side.

1 – Brighton
The Seagull’s new home strip is a thing of beauty and ranks first on our list of Premier League kits 20/21. The white collar, the pinstripes, the gold swoosh; it’s the classiest kit in the Premier League. The various design elements hang together seamlessly to create a shirt for the ages. Graham Potter’s men will be hoping to build on a season which saw them finish 15th, seven points above the relegation zone. Regardless of where they finish next May, Brighton have topped the kit table.
