What’s that old saying about London buses?
You wait for weeks into the Premier League season for a new third kit and then two come along at once just like that?
🏆Best bets: Champions League Tuesday🏆
- Man United v Basel, United to score after 75 minutes: 11/10
- United and Chelsea to win to nil: 3/2
- United, Chelsea, City, Liverpool and Spurs to win: 7/1
Well Tottenham and Chelsea have done just that, dropping their positively immaculate new alternative strips just when you thought the fresh apparel for the campaign was done and dusted.
The arch London rivals are both sponsored by Nike and, like their respective home shirts, there’s very little to differentiate between the two kits.
Chelsea’s is a moody dark blue colour, offset with a pseudo-chequered design and a sharp light blue Nike tick.
It won’t surprise you to know Marcos Alonso looks the part in it.
As for Spurs, they’ve gone a little more off-piste with a classy violet number, as demonstrated by Christian Eriksen and Eric Dier below.
The announcement comes as Nike’s other main Premier League client Manchester City also unveiled their respective third kit.
I guess the main question to ask now – how often will we actually get to see them this season?
