Portsmouth and Sunderland ended their match in dramatic fashion as Pompey secured a point in a last second goal at Fratton Park. Portsmouth being the home side meant their sharp home kits were on display. Sunderland chose their rare white change kits. Perhaps this will be a lesson.

  1. I really like this combo for Chelsea but think white socks look a little better. I guess Everton forced their hand on that one.

  2. Yep, the change kits for Chelsea are too blue to be used against another club wearing blue. But I agree with you, the whites look better alone, though they had to contrast the white shorts and socks worn by the Toffees.
