Chelsea appear to have confirmed their home kit for the 2020-21 season after workers were pictured putting up new posters outside Stamford Bridge.

The picture, posted on Twitter by fan Charlie Hurley, shows Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Billy Gilmour and Marcos Alonso wearing a new Three-sponsored home strip, which is the same design as a kit leaked online last week.

The new image seems to confirm that the leaked kit was not a fake, and that the all-blue strip will indeed be worn by Frank Lampard’s side for the next campaign.

The strip has been designed by Nike but features no huge surprises for the club’s supporters

When it first surfaced on Saturday, there was a mixed reaction among supporters to the new-look Nike kit, with some having taken aim at the perceived lack of innovation. 

The designers have introduced an understated look in two shades of blue, with the collar and lateral stripes navy, while a subtle chevron pattern covers the entire front, sleeves and back.

It features a subtle ‘CFC’ text on the sleeve cuffs, as well as blue shorts and white socks complete the Chelsea 2020-2021 home kit. 

One fan commented: ‘These Nike kits are dead and so generic’.

But some are on board with the new design, with one commenting: ‘If this is our new home kit, Nike have done Chelsea proud. Our best one yet!’ 

Despite the prominence of the sponsor logo, there were other, more positive comments too, with one saying: ‘Apart from the Three logo being a bit too prominent, I’m a fan.’

Another agreed, adding: ‘Not sure about the sponsor logo, but the kit is (fire emoji).

‘Two contrasting tones of blue, clean, round neck. Something real different from previous Chelsea kits.’
