This Arsenal shirt is the best away kit you’ve forgotten all about

Arsenal’s away kits tend to be yellow.

There’s nothing wrong with that, they’ve had some absolute classics over the years in that colour.

But back in 2011, Arsenal departed from the traditional yellow away strips and tried something bold and fresh.

In Robin van Persie’s final season as an Arsenal player, the Gunners donned a two-tone blue away kit: and navy and sky blue kit, diagonally divided and finished with white detail.

That away kit was a thing of beauty, and so was some of Arsenal’s football that season.

Van Persie romped his way to 30 Premier League goals, and 37 in all competitions.

That squad fell short of winning the title, missing out to Manchester United and eventual winners Manchester City.

Arsene Wenger’s side also had its fair share of dead weight, with the likes of Johan Djorou and Nicklas Bendtner still hanging on to their Arsenal careers.

To be honest, we’d forgotten Arsenal had even worn this stunner of an away kit. It’s classy, sleek and is an advert for an away kit that isn’t yellow.
