Chelsea unveil new home kit for the 2018-19 season

Comments
The Blues have released their new home jersey for the upcoming Premier League season, featuring red and white stripes along the blue jersey

Chelsea have unveiled their new home kit for the 2018-19 season, which they plan to wear for the first time this Sunday.

The new design is slightly riskier than this season's effort, which was ultimately a simple, yet elegant, blue design.

In 2018-19 Chelsea will remain in royal blue, but flourishes of red and white half-stripes have been added. Blue shorts and white socks, with a blue and red trim, complete the kit. The shirt is inspired by kits from the 1980s and 1990s.

Nike claim that the Vapor kit "combines breathability with mobility", while the raglan sleeves "allow a natural range of motion".

Chelsea will wear the kit for the first time this weekend, as they face Newcastle United in their final Premier League fixture of the 2017-18 season.

Antonio Conte's men are currently fifth and know that they must win, and hope Liverpool lose to Brighton, if they are to finish in the top four.
