Hoops on a Chelsea kit?! The horror! Blues fans can relax though as they won't be walking out next season looking like some sort of copycats to west London neighbours, QPR
Instead Jose Mourinho's team will have two shades of blue dashed across their home strip. It was a feature seen on the Chelsea kit which won the Champions League in 2012, so it's a good omen at the very least.
And as a standalone shirt, it's still not a bad design. Place it with the plain blue shorts though and it looks rather mismatched.

AWAY KIT
For many Chelsea fans who only started supporting the club in the 21st century, the sight of an all-yellow away kit will certainly be an eye opener.
The west London side have only worn yellow twice since Roman Abramovich took over the club in 2003, the first being a bold luminous approach in 2007/08, the second a more traditional design which won the FA Cup in 2009.
But long time Blues fans will welcome back a familiar kit colour from yesteryear which has constantly featured throughout the club's history. There isn't too much in the way of detail but the royal blue trim matches perfectly on a very smart looking kit which is sure to go down well with fans - old and new.
Away kit verdict: 9/10
