First photos of Chelsea’s eye-catching 2021/22 away kit surface online

The first photos of the kit set to be donned by European champions Chelsea away from Stamford Bridge next season have come to the fore online this afternoon.

Striking design​

This past season of course saw Nike change things up when it came to Chelsea’s colours on the road.

Rather than the white, yellow or black of years gone by, the Pensioners were fitted with a light blue design, featuring a zig-zagged pattern.

The jersey was met with something of a mixed response on the part of the club’s fanbase, many of whom had seemingly hoped for a more simple design.

And, if the aforementioned first photos of Chelsea’s predicted away kit for the 2021/22 campaign are anything to go by, then such supporters are unlikely to be overly thrilled with Nike’s latest efforts, either.

As showcased below, the capital giants look set to pull on a striking yellow shirt on the road next season.

A series of black horizontal lines will feature across the jersey’s front, accompanied by black sleeve cuffs and a collar of the same colour.

The initial leak to have surfaced this afternoon took on an almost green tint:

The reliable Footy Headlines, though, have since added a slight modification, revealing a more natural ‘Opti’ yellow, as showcased in the image below:

Jorgi dazzles​

The opening fixture of the Euro 2020 tournament was of course played out in Rome last night, when Italy welcomed Turkey to the Stadio Olimpico.

Roberto Mancini’s men eventually ran out dominant 3-0 victors, courtesy of a stellar team display.

None was more impressive from an individual standpoint throughout the clash, though, than Chelsea star Jorginho.

The midfielder dictated the flow of the game with effortless class and vision, picking apart Turkey’s ranks in the middle of the park from his deep-lying berth.

Expect similarly impressive exploits on Jorginho’s part over the weeks ahead, as Italy eye a deep Euros run.
