?Chelsea look set to have red trim return to their home kit in 2018/19, with the club’s rumoured shirt for next season leaked online by Footy Headlines.
The shirt will be the second from Nike and looks as though it will feature a number of similarities to the strip currently worn by Eden Hazard, N’Golo Kante and the like.
Partial white and red horizontal stripes are expected to be added to the design, though.

Red trim (excluding the Yokohama logo) last featured on a Chelsea home shirt during the 2015/16 campaign. There was a red neck on the 2010/11 shirt, supplied by adidas. Prior to that, it was the 1994/95 campaign the last time that a Chelsea home shirt had any red in it.
Other rumoured leaks this month have suggested that yellow is set to return as the primary away colour as the club makes a break from the growing number of black shirts and white shirts seen in recent seasons.
