Arsenal will kick off their 2017/2018 Premier League against Leicester City at the Emirates on August 11 but not before they face off against fierce rivals Chelsea at Wembley in the Community Shield a week before hand.
After an incredibly disappointing campaign last time out, Arsenal will look for some major improvement and they hope the likes of Alexandre Lacazette will be able to score some much-needed goals as they hope to return to Champions League football for the 2018/2019 season.
Of course, like all Premier League clubs at this time of year, new kits are the order of the day and after releasing their new home and alternate kits, the Gunners have released their new away kit for the coming season.
And it’s blue.
And the reaction has been mostly negative…
Fucking awful. Possibly the worst kit we've ever had.

Some were a little more positive…

While others don’t care as long as Arsenal get Thomas Lemar over the line…
Sign Lemar and I will buy all our jerseys for this season.
