Liverpool fans react following leaked images of Nike 2020/21 kit

Liverpool’s 2019/20 season has been quite the rollercoaster to say the least, following on from the best campaign any team has seen in the top flight – no one could have predicted the chaos that has occurred over the past few weeks.

However, following leaked images, the response from supporters has been mixed and some have taken to Twitter to showcase their opinions on the matter.
