Photos: Liverpool reveal 2020/21 Nike home kit

Liverpool have today revealed their new home kit for the 2020/21 season.

The new strip is made by Nike as the Reds enter the second year of their record-breaking partnership with the American sportswear giants.

As ever, the kit is made up of a red shirt, red shorts and red socks.

However, for the first time in the club’s history, the red is complimented by crimson details. The orangey-pink colour features on the collar and on the sleeve cuffs.

There are also a series of lightning-style diagonal crimson pinstripes on the front of the shirt.

The crest, Nike swoosh and updated Standard Chartered logo are all white. The sleeve sponsor, Expedia, is also white.

The home goalkeeper shirt is bright green and features a pixelated design.

It will be Liverpool’s most sustainable kit yet, per LiverpoolFC.com. It is made with 100 per cent recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles.

The kit is available to pre-order now from Liverpool’s online store and will be on sale from June 3.

Jurgen Klopp’s men will wear the new kit for the first time in Sunday’s crucial clash with Crystal Palace.

The new kit is likely going to split the fanbase.

The traditionalists among us may be wondering why crimson features so heavily on a Liverpool kit. Yet the modernists will probably love the new design and embrace the fact that Nike have introduced something new and bold.

It is hard to spice up an all-red kit. There are only so many tweaks to the design that can be made every year.

So it is important to have an open mind with these things, or else we would end up with the exact same kit every season.

The 2021/22 edition is not one of the all-time great Liverpool kits. But it is by no means one of the worst either.

Let’s face it – anything with that Nike swoosh on it is all the better for having it. It brings an element of class that wasn’t really there with the likes of Reebok, Warrior or New Balance.

The most important thing is that we see the kit worn in the UEFA Champions League next season. Hopefully, it will bring the Reds luck when they wear it at Anfield on Sunday.
