Top 20 Premier League Club Football Kits, Ranked Worst to Best

  1. Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest and Adidas completely missed on this kit. With no sponsor to start the year, this kit looks dead and similar to a practice jersey. In their second consecutive season in the Premier League, Forest produced the worst kit of the teams. There is no life in this shirt at all. 

  1. Luton Town

In their first-ever season in the Premier League, Luton Town released an uninspiring jersey. The orange-to-white gradient doesn’t do much for me and gives me construction worker vibes. With Luton having a cool crest I expected more from this kit, instead, we received a highlighter orange brick.

  1. Burnley

Another newly promoted team, Burnley, came in at 18th. With 3 teams now having a maroon and blue colorway, it can be hard to tell them apart. While I like Aston Villa’s and West Ham’s kit, this Burnley shirt falls short. The sponsor throws the shirt off so much, making it not too fun to look at.

  1. Sheffield United

The biggest glare of this jersey is the sponsor. The sponsor takes this shirt from average to an eyesore. The red on the sponsor doesn’t match the orange on the shirt, making this a forgettable jersey.

  1. Brentford

Similar to Sheffield United’s kit, the striped pattern doesn’t work for me. The gradient pattern isn’t a pleasant design choice to me, as it felt like they were trying to do too much and just didn’t work in my opinion. 

  1. Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace typically releases quality kits every year, but the split jersey this year missed for me. Last year, Palace had one of my favorite kits but the straight split of red and blue doesn’t quite work in my opinion. Wouldn’t say this is a horrible kit, but definitely below average.

  1. Fulham

Fulham’s home kit is very simple and nothing very memorable, but it works. It’s an average kit but I like the different color Adidas stripes on the two sleeves. The sponsor also works well with the kit, it just doesn’t have anything that takes it higher. 

  1. Chelsea

Chelsea is a club with iconic kits, and their kit this year pays homage to that. The 90s-inspired kit is a great conceptual idea, but with no sponsor for the first couple of games, it just looked like another plain kit. The badge is quite cool and I like the kit, but there were so many quality shirts this year, that this one fell into 13th.

  1. Wolverhampton

I had a hard time deciding the order of this and the Chelsea kit, but I decided to place Wolves higher, as I like the yellow because it’s different, and this shade of yellow works for me. The sleeve seam has a nice design and Wolves produced a really nice kit. 

  1. Liverpool

Liverpool is another club with classic kits. Liverpool came out with another simple, yet recognizably Liverpool. This is a very solid kit, but with the amount of quality kits this year it couldn’t quite sneak into my top ten. Nonetheless, it’s still a nice shirt.

  1. Tottenham

The first top-ten spot goes to Tottenham. The slight patterns throughout the jersey and hemming on the sleeve create one of Tottenham’s better kits in the past couple of years. The pop of the red “AIA” sponsor also greatly improves this shirt. It’s a very solid shirt, but there are still better kits. 

  1. Aston Villa

In their second season with Castore as their kit manufacturer, Aston Villa has a very eye-catching kit. The Maroon with the designs mesh so well with that baby blue and the shirt sponsor works with it as well. Villa changed their badge on their kit this year, and this is a great debut for that new badge.

  1. Newcastle United

Newcastle’s kit this year is one of my favorite of the striped patterns. It does just enough to make a basic and more neutral-looking color kit look really nice. The sponsor just being black and white complements the rest of the kit perfectly. The red numbers on the back add a nice pop of color making Newcastle’s kit well put together. 

  1. Bournemouth

Bournemouth has my second favorite striped kit this year with the black and red pairing so well with the badge on the shirt. Even the Dafabet sponsor despite having a yellow logo works really well on the kit. Umbro did well with the kit and Bournemouth surprised me with the quality of this shirt.

  1. Brighton & Hove Albion

Brighton’s kit this year is absolutely beautiful to me. The blue and white stripes look great with the blue sleeves and the American Express sponsor in the middle. This was so close to making the top five but it just misses out on that spot. If I was a Brighton fan this would have 100% been a purchase for me. It flows so well together. 

  1. Everton

In a season where Everton is most likely going to get relegated, they’re going to look great doing it. This shade of blue works so well and the “Stake” sponsor being written in cursive helps this kit feel very classy. The patterns on the collar and hemming on the sleeve only add to the appealing visual of this kit. Very quality kit and deserving of a top-five placement. 

  1. West Ham

West Ham really delivered a beautiful version of the maroon and baby blue kit this year. The little bubble detailing to commemorate the kickoff tradition of fans blowing bubbles is such a good idea and it takes this kit from good to great in my opinion. This is another great Umbro kit and West Ham lands itself in the fourth spot.

  1. Manchester United

My favorite team, Man United, produced a beautiful kit that I bought just about instantly after its release. The slight detailing in the kit works its magic again, if you can’t tell I really enjoy the little details in these kits and United does a great job of having a kit with great details and making a very sleek-looking kit. The black Adidas stripes on the kit also add a lot to it in my opinion. 

  1. Manchester City

Man City’s baby blue kit just nearly missed out on the top spot as it was rather hard to choose the final three spots. City’s just came up short to me but this is still quite a lovely kit. It’s simple but the addition of the little line pattern just hits all the right beats. The Puma logo and Etihad Airways logos in white are so crisp. Along with the collar, this Manchester City kit is so sweet and I can’t help but like it. 

  1. Arsenal

My favorite kit of this year is Arsenal. Everything on this shirt works so well. Everything from the gold accents and elements to commemorate the 20th anniversary since the Invincibles won the premier league in 2003/04 to the little line detailing in the red. The gunners look astounding flying around on the pitch with these on. All elements work so well together, making this my personal favorite premier league kit this year.
