The 2017-18 Premier League season is almost upon us, and every of the 20 groups can be rocking new house kits at kick-off. As with all change, the brand new shirts have to be scrutinized intensely and ranked accordingly. We requested 5 soccer editors from theScore to fee every out of 10 (equalling a complete rating out of fifty) to comprise our listing.
This is how we rank the 20 house kits for the upcoming marketing campaign:
20/50 – “Alright lads, get out of your coaching tops and into your kits,” stated the assistant coach after heat-ups. “No,” stated the gamers, preserving their shirts on.
22/50 – We’re not fairly positive what is going on on with Burnley‘s house package this yr, however we reckon followers with bushy shoulders will recognize the nod their approach.
18. Crystal Palace

23/50 – Somebody inform Crystal Palace it is okay to purchase materials from actual package makers as an alternative of the man who operates the knock-off sales space outdoors Selhurst Park.
17. Stoke Metropolis
24/50 – It is so completely predictable from Stoke Metropolis, however the stripes are half and parcel of the Potters’ look and deviation can be robust. Nonetheless … not fairly.
sixteen. Swansea Metropolis
26/50 – If minimalism is the decision, then Swansea should eliminate the random sleeve webbing and make the sponsor much less in your Leface.
15. Leicester Metropolis
26/50 – At this fee, Leicester Metropolis gamers might be pressured to get “KING POWER” tattooed on their foreheads if they need their pay cheques deposited.
14. Brighton & Hove Albion
27/50 – This package divided our voters, however all of us agreed it is a daring search for Premier League newcomer Brighton. Nonetheless, combining totally different shades of blue is a bizarre selection.
thirteen. Manchester United
27/50 – Manchester United has an iconic look that does not want a lot tampering with. It is persistently strong, if considerably unspectacular.
12. West Ham United
28/50 – The basic claret and blue color scheme all the time works properly – the sleeves, as is the case most years, actually pop. The darker, triangular part beneath the collar is an enormous miss, although.
29/50 – We just like the deep hues and daring stripes, however Bournemouth‘s package lacks creativeness; it is nearly the identical shirt as final yr’s, in too some ways.
10. Newcastle United
30/50 – This season guarantees to be 88 occasions extra enjoyable than final, although it’s going to harm 88 occasions as a lot if Newcastle is relegated once more at season’s finish.
30/50 – It is plain, it is blue, it is … superb, we suppose, however nothing too particular from Nike in its first providing to the Chelsea trustworthy. It is principally a blue T-shirt.
32/50 – The yellow is probably just a little too fluorescent, however the purple accents are a pleasant contact, notably as they jive with the membership’s crest. A very good look general.
34/50 – If the Swans want inspiration, look solely so far as Tottenham, which rocks the perfect white package of the bunch. The brand new badge is a pointy look, too.
6. West Bromwich Albion
34/forty – West Brom‘s robust blue stripes give it a singular look within the English prime flight, ruined as ever by an audacious sponsor emblem within the midsection. Disgrace.
5. Manchester Metropolis
36/50 – One other strong, if easy providing from Manchester Metropolis, which may thank its sky-blue color scheme for separating itself from the remainder of the Nike pack.
37/50 – Lastly, the monotonous pink-striped mid-desk Premier League core has been damaged up, with Southampton going for a stunning white-block entrance.
38/50 – Elegant and classically Arsenal, this yr’s shirt fares in addition to many from the previous, although we have got to marvel if it is a bit of too type-becoming …
forty one/50 – Completely and utterly good, Liverpool‘s deeper purple tones make for a superb residence package that Gegen-pressed its approach to second in our rankings (however first in our hearts). It will be the clear winner, if not for …
forty two/50 – Welcome to the Prem, Huddersfield. In a league riddled with boring blue kits, the Terriers flipped the script and put out a pointy, distinctive striped look.
