Chelsea’s leaked Nike kit for 2017/18 season is fake news!

As usual a new set of Chelsea kit leaks have been making the rounds on social media again.

Except it’s fake news.

And as per the norm the mainstream media is running with the images, claiming the ‘new kits’ area a throwback crosshatch diamond pattern that honours the days of Pat Nevin and Kerry Dixon and the sponsorship of Commodore.

Typically the lying ‘The Sun’ and ‘Metro’ fail or choose not to tell you that these were made by a graphic artist and are not official.

The real truth is the image seen below, are just concept mock-ups from way back in January, done by graphic designer @rupertalbe for a website called Football Nerds. but now they are now missing the designer’s credit in the pictures, sneaky move by the mainstream media.
