Nike Chelsea 17-18 third kit

Chelsea’s new third kit has FINALLY been released – a month into the start of the season.

The Blues’ kit deal with Nike officially began on July 1st, and at that point both the home and away kits were announced. However, over two months down the line, our third kit has now finally been released by the club.

The photo posted on the Chelsea Twitter account showed Tiemoue Bakayoko, Antonio Rudiger and Marcos Alonso donning the new strip. First impressions, it’s as gorgeous as the other two kits we’ve had manufactured by Nike.

There is just one problem with it – it’s exactly the same as Manchester City and Tottenham‘s alternate strip. Both clubs, who also have kit deals with Nike, also announced their third kits today, and there are remarkable similarities to Chelsea’s.

Tottenham’s has a drastically different colour scheme to ours, but City’s is virtually exactly the same. You get the feeling that Nike were not feeling very imaginative when they drew up these designs…
