Here’s a picture of Mason Mount modelling the new home kit.

According to reports, the kit will be used in Chelsea’s FA Cup finale vs Leicester this weekend.

A number of Chelsea fans took to the comments to express their feelings on the new kit. Some were of the opinion that the kit is decent, at least while others spared nothing in expressing their distaste.

What do you think of the new home kit?

The shirt is very different to previous Blues’ home kits.

The main colour is ‘Lyon Blue’ but this time it features ‘Opti Yellow’ logos rather than the traditional white colours.

Design-wise, Nike have gone for an abstract zig-zag and checker all-over print – said to be inspired by 60s style prints.

A v-collar is used round the neck, while there are yellow stripes along the sides.
