Southampton unveil one-off kit for Bournemouth clash

Southampton have unveiled a one-off kit to wear for their Premier League match against Bournemouth.

On social media, the club released pictures of the new strip, which features a white shirt and red shorts, with red and white striped socks.

The Saints were asked by the Premier League to come up with a new design as the bosses felt that the club’s home and away kits clashed too much with Bournemouth’s strip.

The unfortunate aspect for Southampton fans is that they will not be able to purchase a replica shirt of their own as it will not be going on sale.

Instead, the club have opted to give away an Under Armour jersey as part of a competition for the supporters.

Sunday’s clash is the closest thing to a derby for these two sides in the Premier League, and it is made even tastier given that both are level on 21 points.

Claude Puel’s team sit in ninth with a slightly better goal difference than Bournemouth, but Eddie Howe’s side head into the match on the back of a 1-0 win over champions Leicester City.

Southampton were restricted to a goalless draw by Stoke City in midweek, despite having an extra man following Marko Arnautovic’s sending-off.
