We all know Arsenal love a kit and now they’re set to wear a mash-up for their Europa League clash away at PSV Eindhoven.

In the game at the Philips Stadion the Gunners will have their away shirt and socks paired with bespoke grey shorts from adidas.

It was originally suggested that Arsenal could wear their white home shorts with the away strip but that is not set to be the case.

PSV wear red and white stripes for their home kit, paired with black shorts and white socks with red hoops.

The north Londoners can’t even wear their third kit as the pink number is too light and will clash with the Dutch giants‘ home effort.

 

This means the Gunners, as the away team, will have to adapt leaving them to create a bizarre mash-up of the strips.

It’s not the first time a team has had to do it and Arsenal have had to do it plenty of times in Europe too.

Arsenal have already booked their place in the knockout stages of the Europa League as they snatched a 1-0 win over PSV last Thursday.

“In terms of the games that you have to play and against who, and that’s still something we have to do.
