Liverpool drop new home kit for 2020/21 season: first ever Nike shirt for the Premier League champions

Liverpool will proudly display the 'Champions 2019/20' patch on their kit for the 2020/21 season, which was unveiled on Saturday morning. The Reds will kick off their partnership with Nike with a new design that features a white and teal collar and sleeve cuffs. We here at GiveMeSport have decided to rank every single kit worn by the Premier League champions in the season after they claimed the title. So for example, the list features Liverpool's 2020/21 shirt, not the one they wore in their title-winning campaign. It's a shame Leicester City didn't return from their title triumph with a nicer design.

Liverpool's new design, their first with Nike, sits 15th in our list. There were plenty of Man United kits to rank - 11 in total - but few were smarter than their 2011/12 home edition. Man United occupy the top three spots on our list, with their iconic 2007/08 and 2008/09 shirt coming in at No.1. It's the same kit that they wore in their title-winning season and it's not hard to understand why they decided not to change.

Jordan Henderson, Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott were on modelling duty for the new strip, which features a teal trim and a V-neck collar. Virgil van Dijk was also promoting the new kit, and although this is Liverpool's first link-up with Nike, the Dutchman has been working with them for some time. 'I've been part of the Nike family for a while now and have an incredible relationship with them,' said Van Dijk. 'I'm very familiar with the quality of the design and innovation that goes into making a kit like this. Scott Munson, VP, Nike Football Apparel, added: 'At the start of any new partnership it is important to show maximum respect and we have done that by concentrating on the club's core identity.
