Every 2022/23 Premier League home kit has now been revealed.
While leaks and rumors might have been bobbing around the football space for some time now, Friday’s release of Fulham’s home kit for their return to the top-flight now means that all 20 home shirts are confirmed.
Yes, we still have a few more weeks of away and third releases to keep us occupied, but we can now take stock of the complete set of jerseys that Premier League sides will be wearing in front of their own fans.
And that can only mean one thing: we’ve got to rank them all.
Ranking every Premier League home kit
Yes, that’s right, the increasing interest in football fashion these days means that fans are more opinionated than ever on which shirts are the best in the business and which should be arrested for crimes against fashion.
So, we figured that it would be rude for us not to throw in our two cents by ranking every 2022/23 Premier League home kit from worst to best, based on the opinion of your humble writer.
There are no right and wrong answers when it comes to rating jerseys, so be sure to let us know your own thoughts across our social channels too, but here are how the 20 strips stacked up in our eyes:
Ugh. The messy sponsor, lack of red and unnecessary texturing on the white sections of the shirt give this Saints design a significantly cluttered look in what makes for a rare misfire from Hummel.
19. Leicester City
An oversized collar and overblown sponsors are just the tip of the iceberg for a rather cheap-looking Leicester design where the golden Adidas logo and club badge stick out like a sore thumb.
Does anyone actually like this collar design? In what feels like a poor attempt to recapture the magic of England’s Euro 2020 home shirt, Nike have once again dropped a widely-maligned Chelsea release.
17. Aston Villa
Boooooring. The subtle chevron texturing isn’t really bringing anything to the table that we haven’t seen from a Villa kit before, even if it doesn’t necessarily upset us in any way.
16. Wolverhampton Wanderers
Again, there’s just not much going on here, is there? Castore have pumped out another distinctly safe home shirt where the highlight is an okay-ish black collar that runs onto the shoulders.
15. Brighton & Hove Albion
By contrast, you can’t accuse Nike of being unoriginal with their design for the Seagulls, but – and this is where the subjectivity really comes in – we’re simply not a fan of the huge increase in yellow, particularly on the sleeves and collar.

It does look fairly clean with its classy white collar, but let’s face it, Hummel haven’t exactly produced an Everton design that’s going to be remembered for years and years to come.
It’s one of those shirts that some fans will chastise for being too simple and others will praise as looking incredibly smart. For us, we’re in the middle ground shrugging our shoulders.
Fair play to Brentford for saving their fans money by carrying over their 2021/22 home shirt for another season, but that doesn’t mean our opinion has changed on it: firmly middle of the road.
Dare we say that Adidas’ collared released for 2022/23 are actually a little bit overrated? Despite this jersey receiving a lot of love from fans, we just think that the end product pales in comparison to what the leaks built it up to be.
10. Newcastle United
It’s second time lucky for Castore as the Toon’s kit provider with the weird ‘4’ swapped out for more traditional stripes rounded off neatly at the neck and arms. Nothing ground-breaking, though.
9. Tottenham Hotspur
Call us over-generous, but the neon and navy trimmings turn Nike’s latest Spurs design into a masterclass in keeping things simple, even if it’s ultimately too safe to rank much higher
8. Manchester United
Like we said with Arsenal, the collars have left us a lot colder than expected, but at least there’s a bit more invention going on here with the texturing and bordered badge making this one of the better United home shirts of recent years.
7. West Ham United
We change our minds on a daily basis as to whether we rate the shoulder texturing or actually dislike it, but the positivity tends to prevail in what makes for another solid Hammers kit.
6. Nottingham Forest
Should this have wound up in mid-tier for not necessarily deviating too far from type? Maybe, maybe, but we just happen to think Forest’s shirt looks ace with its collar and sleeve texturing.
5. Leeds United
Truth be told, it’s hard to do much with a Leeds home shirt that’s particularly eye-popping, so kudos to Adidas for producing an absolute belter where every element of the design is singing off the same color scheme hymn sheet.
The Cottagers waited until a week before the big kick-off to show their new home shirt to the world, but boy was it worth the wait. The gorgeous red waves in the black trimmings make it look so, so smart.

3. Crystal Palace
The crayon-scribble theme that Palace are going for this year isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but we’re really coming round to Macron’s unique approach where the red and blue madness is deftly tamed by thick white bordering.
2. Manchester City
It’s just class, isn’t it? The maroon and white trimmings, as well as the centralized logos, make the classic sky blue color pop in yet another City masterpiece from Puma.
Sign me up. Atletico Madrid are a prime example of how messing with stripes can end in tears, but Umbro have flown in the face of convention with an absolute beauty for the Cherries where red and black lightning is superbly rounded off the smartest of collars.
Which kit is your favorite?
Ah, we can smell the controversy and debate already.
Look, if you think that Southampton have created a fashion masterpiece with their new home shirt and that Bournemouth’s zig-wag design deviates too far from tradition, then power to you because rating football kits is about as subjective as it gets.
And what matters most is that each of these shirts carries the proud history of their clubs with them in showcasing the traditional colors that generations young and old have sported in the terraces for decades.

It just so happens that we think some of the 2022/23 iterations look better than others. Come on, you’ve got to admit that the City design is an absolute banger!
