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.
Manchester City needed just two goals to easily dispatch of Bolton Wanderers at Eastlands. City donning their usual kits put Bolton into their navy change kits. The Trotters also broke out their navy shorts to contrast with City’s whites.
Tuesday also saw Fulham blast Burnley 3-0 at Craven Cottage. Fulham donned their regular outfits. Burnley were all changed up with alternate sky blue shorts and socks joining their claret home kits, giving them a look very much like West Ham a few weeks back.
On Wednesday, Everton used two Louis Saha goals to come from behind to knock off Chelsea at Goodison Park. Everton‘s blue home kits forced Chelsea to wear their European whites but with dark navy alternate shorts and socks.
Blackburn Rovers won the strangest game of the mid-week fixtures with a 1-0 win over Hull City at Ewood Park, compliments of a Hull own-goal. Blackburn fielded their usual look with Hull wearing theirs without conflict.
