Chelsea fans lash out at Nike over 2020/21 away kit due to Man City resemblance

Chelsea supporters have questioned Nike after seeing their away strip for the 2020/21 season.

The light blue kit is rather similar to the usual home design of their Premier League rivals Manchester City, prompting a backlash on Twitter.

The images were revealed on Tuesday morning and both Mason Mount and Sam Kerr can be seen modelling the new look which will be available to buy at the end of this month.

The Blues are set to wear the outfit for the first time against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park this evening as the away side look to gain a five-point advantage over Manchester United in the race for the top four.

Both Mount and Kerr have given their thoughts on the design to the official website, and they were both unsurprisingly favourable.

England midfielder Mount said: “The colours and pattern of the away work really well.

“It looks great and it’s also a nice contrast to the home kit.

“Hopefully the fans will like it as well and we can push on and make them proud.”
