Arsenal will be in their third kit for the second league game running this season with the Gunners set to don their blue strip when they square off against Norwich City at Carrow Road on Boxing Day (December 26, 2021)
The Gunners wore the third shirt last weekend against Leeds in GW18, a fixture they won 4-1 against Marcelo Bielsa’s men. Prior to that, the third kit had only been seen in action on the opening day of the 2021/22 season against Brentford, where Mikel Arteta’s side lost 2-0 to the newly promoted Bees.
Interestingly, against Brentford, Arsenal wore red socks with the third jersey, but were in blue ones for the Leeds game.
The Gunners have a good record in games played on Boxing Day- they’ve lost only two of the 23 games on this date.
