Last week, when Chelsea debuted their new home blue kit, emblazoned with the number 3 on the front, the product rollout didn’t go so well. Regardless of what you think of that shirt and its design, the club lost 3-2 to relegation fodder West Ham United while premiering the shirts.

It was just too easy for everyone to make the same “how many goals are you going to concede today?” joke. The 3 is for new shirt sponsor Three UK, a telco giant, but it’s strange seeing a number on both the front and back of a strip. That will take some getting used to, to say the least.

Other than that, we don’t see anything too unorthodox about the new Chelsea kit, but new shirts always polarize opinion anyway. Today sees the Blues debut their new away shirt, in the match at Crystal Palace that kicks off in a matter of minutes.

It’s a sky blue, or Carolina blue, or powder blue look, whatever you want to call it, but it’s very reminiscent of Manchester City, certainly.

Also, if you want some preview material for this kit debuting fixture, we’ve got you covered with all that below.
