The Blues won’t want to remember this campaign in a hurry and will be hoping a change of strip can bring about a change in fortunes over the summer.
An official announcement from the club revealing Chelsea’s 2016-17 kits is not expected for several months but social media is awash with gossip and leaked images.
Sportswear giant Adidas will once again supply the west Londoners with their range of shirts, shorts and socks after signing a long-term deal in 2013.
Website Voetbal Shirtjes has claimed to have obtained images of next season’s shirts and has showcased pictures of a rumoured home, away and third strip.
Adidas’ trademark three stripes feature down the side of all three shirts and Yokohama continue as the club’s main shirt sponsor.
Chelsea’s home shirt is of course finished in traditional blue whereas the away strip features a fluorescent yellow, black and grey palette in a hark back to the 2009 version.
The third kit is finished in white with blue highlights, all three kits also incorporating a lion watermark effect as part of a shake-up of this season’s designs.
