Every year the Premier League is sporting a set of new kits and jerseys for supporters to buy and cherish.

Clubs don’t get it right every year, but when they do, it’s a wonderful thing. Aside from the obviously cool kits sported by the league’s traditionally bigger sides, the less fashionable sides also boats some awesome strips.

Ivan Toney would make most kits look good, and this one is a pearler. The England man has scored 16 goals this season, a tally bettered only by Harry Kane and Erling Haaland. As third kits go, this is one of the best around. Black always looks good, and it’s enhanced by the pop of colour provided by those irregularly shaped blocks.

Burnley 2020-21 away

The Clarets narrowly escaped relegation in this kit, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s a banger. Zoom in closer on the Burnley crest when you get a chance and enjoy how retro it looks, almost like it’s in an 8-bit video game. Relegation followed in the 2021-22 campaign, but we are highly likely to see these guys back in the big time next season. Lyle Foster should feel right at home.

Brighton 2020-21 away

This just so nice and clean, which also describes the football that the Seagulls have been playing in the Premier League lately. Undoubtedly one of the best sides to watch, and it helps when they’re wearing slick kits like this one. Their 2022-23 strips aren’t too shabby either. Yves Bissouma has since moved on to Spurs, but how good does he look here? Blue and yellow just works.

Liverpool 2021-22 away

This kit oozed class and sophistication. First off, there’s a traditional collar of dark teal with ecru and red piping. The sleeve cuffs match the dark teal base color. One of the most gorgeous away jerseys you’ll ever see, but it’s not one you’ll see too often.

Arsenal 2021-22 third

It’s only underrated because we didn’t see enough of it. The Gunners actually lost on the opening day of this campaign away to Brentford in this jersey, but steadily improved throughout the campaign and made better memories wearing this superbly retro jersey with lightning bolt design, a nod to the 1994-95 and 1995-96 navy designs. Arsenal have come a long way in a short space of time since this image was taken.
