Since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel, The Blues have been on a fourteen match (10W 4D) unbeaten streak in all competitions. However, fans are disappointed with Nike as a result of the Chelsea new kit.
With the new Chelsea kit leaked, several fans are likely to have had a glance at what their team's next kit looks like ahead of the new season.

While there may be several Chelsea fans who are unhappy with the Chelsea new kit, they certainly cannot be disappointed with their team's form. Since Thomas Tuchel arrived in January, the Blues not only have a 14-match unbeaten run in all competitions but have just conceded two goals, keeping an outrageous 12 clean sheets in the process. As a result, The Blues now find themselves in fourth place in the Premier League standings, and now have a fantastic opportunity to finish in the Champions League places with nine games remaining this season. Thomas Tuchel's men will hope to continue their amazing run against a struggling West Brom side this weekend.
