Everton released their 2017/18 home kit on May 16, the new design from Umbro featuring a classic diamond pattern on the sleeves and side of the white shorts.
Through an Everton Fans’ Forum vote, supporters chose to to honour club legend Dixie Dean; a motif of the man who scored 383 goals in his 12 years at Goodison Park features on the back of the shirt collars.
Liverpool unveiled their new home kit at the end of April and it pays homage to the Reds’ 125th anniversary with a newly designed commemorative crest.
The liver bird emblem will be flanked with ‘1892’ and ‘2017’ and will retain a nod to the Hillsborough tragedy as the 96 emblem, encased by the eternal flames, will sit at the nape of the neck.
The overall shirt design – produced by New Balance – also takes inspiration from previous kits, such as the famous ‘Rome’ 1984 home shirt and will return to the darker ‘Shankly red’.
Man Utd released their away kit of the 2017/18 season on May 10, opting to pay homage to their blue away strip from the early 1990s in a mix of dark grey, black and white with a crew-neck collar.
The three adidas stripes, club badge and logo are all in white and will be worn by Jose Mourinho’s side for the first time during their pre-season tour.
Recently promoted Newcastle released their new home kit on May 15 and it features a commemorative crest for the club’s 125th anniversary with manufacturer Puma sticking to the traditional black and white stripes.
It will be paired with black shorts and black socks with Far Eastern gaming company FUN88 the new kit sponsor on adult shirts for the 2017/18 season.
Stoke have released both their home and away kits for the 2017/18 Premier League season, revealing their new strips on May 8.
Produced by Macron, the Potters stick to their traditional red and white stripes on their home kit with a red, white and blue stripe around the neck. It will be paired with white shorts and socks with a red and blue stripe down the inside of the sock leg.
Stoke are sticking with blue for their away strip, but in a departure from the sky blue of the 2016/17 season, the new shirt is a darker shade with a strip across the chest of white and red lines which will encompass the manufacturer and team logo.
The collar will be white and be paired with blue shorts and white socks which will also have white and red lines around the leg in a similar fashion to the shirt.
