Everton have won the 2018-19 kit war with their new Umbro third strip

Everton’s season has got off to an exciting start in the Premier League. New signing Richarlison is absolutely nailing it, scoring three times in the first two games, and Marco Silva has the Merseyside club playing some tantalising football in his debut season at Goodison Park.

Despite the Angry Birds sponsor soiling their delightful Umbro home and away kits, they’ve launched a similarly classy third strip, which they’ll be wearing at the weekend when they face Bournemouth at Dean Court.

Take a look at this bad boy:

Brooding: Everton’s stars look sharp in their 2018-19 third strip

The navy-and-white colour scheme is enhanced by a royal-blue geometric design, stitched into the shirt’s fabric, and we’re huge fans.

Umbro’s resurgence in the kit game should be a shot in the arm for other manufacturers, including Nike and Adidas, who’ve got a little bit lazy with their one-size-fits-all approach to clubs’ kits.

When you’re expected to cough up £60 for a shirt, you want some originality and thought behind it. This kit ticks those boxes and we’re looking forward to seeing it on Match of the Day this weekend.
