  Chelsea released their new away kit on Thursday morning, with a new striking yellow colour the main colour of the shirt - complete with black trim.




It is the first time that the Blues are set to play in yellow since the 2018/19 campaign when the club lifted the Europa League under Maurizio Sarri.


However, it is a colour that is not uncommon on a Chelsea shirt having also featured in the 2014/15, 2008/09 and 2001/02 seasons, amongst many others.

Upon the unveiling, Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount said: “When you look over the years, you always remember the yellow kits on our heroes that made an impact.


“As players I feel we can do the same and create even more special moments in this new kit!”


Despite that, the new kit was met with a somewhat mixed response, with some hailing the selection but some supporters not being the biggest fans of the strip.


Most fans made the same point, however, that the kit itself was strikingly similar to that of Borussia Dortmund, with its stripes and black highlights.

ronically, one of Chelsea’s prime targets of the current window is Dortmund striker Erling Haaland, and supporters pointed to the fact that he would be set to feel right at home donning the shirt if he completes a move to Stamford  Bridge.


Here is the best of the selection from responses on social media:
