ARSENAL fans remained confused after Bernd Leno was sent off in the Gunners away shirt, instead of their guardian shirt, against Chelsea.
Adidas has designed a green kit for the Gunners’ goalkeepers to wear in the new season, but it is yet to appear in the Premier League after Sunday’s pick.
This isn’t the first time Leno has donned the away shirt as last season’s home occasion against Wolves ended in a 2-1 defeat.
Viewers were unable to explain the decision, with the referee’s black jersey, gray Chelsea goalkeeper kit, and outfielders’ red and blue stripes, meaning the normal green jersey would not have not had to face each other.
What may have been taken into consideration is the ability of color blind fans to distinguish the green from the blue of the away team.
And Arsenal’s away goalkeeper orange kit may have been deemed too similar to their outfielders’ home shirts to be worn instead.
Yet for lack of official explanations to clarify the matter, supporters have had to speculate online about the reasons for the decision.
Twitter user Andy commented: “Don’t Arsenal have a home goalkeeper shirt? Because I swear Leno just wears the away shirt.”

Jordan added: “Is Leno just wearing Arsenal’s away shirt? The poor club can’t even get a goalkeeper kit.”
One fan tweeted: “This club man, anything that can go wrong goes wrong.”
And Russell posted on Twitter: “I can’t figure out why Leno is wearing the away jersey… lol.”
