The reason why Arsenal vs Man Utd is set to be a 'nightmare' for some TV viewers

The reason why Arsenal vs Man Utd is set to be a 'nightmare' for some TV viewers

Arsenal take on United in the Premier League on Sunday.

Manchester United's trip to face Arsenal is set to be a 'nightmare' for some TV viewers with a major problem identified ahead of kick-off.

United travel to take on the Gunners at the Emirates on Sunday in a mouth-watering early season clash.

Arsenal are currently sixth in the table, while United are down in 10th after a mixed start to the campaign.

Rasmus Hojlund could make his debut for United after being named on the bench by Erik ten Hag.

Sky Sports will broadcast the match to UK viewers but there is set to be a problem for some of the audience.

United are expected to wear their new away shirt for the very first time in a competitive match.

United's military green strip is likely to clash with Arsenal's traditional red and white home kit.

It is set to cause confusion for viewers with colour vision deficiency (CVD) and could be a 'nightmare' to watch, the Daily Mail have reported.

Red-green colour blindness is the most common type of CVD. Also known as deuteranopia, it causes people to have difficulty seeing different shades of red, green, and yellow.

According to the National Eye Institute, one in twelve men and one in two hundred women are affected by CVD, otherwise known as colour blindness.

The EFL handbook mentions CVD as a consideration but the Premier League one does not.

It is not the first time the Premier League has faced criticism over a clash of kits.

Another match involving United against Liverpool back in 2021 cause havoc for viewers due to the two teams' strips.

Rugby's world governing body World Rugby is to introduce new laws at the 2027 World Cup that will ban red-green kit clashes to help viewers.

The measure means Wales or Ireland may have to change jerseys if drawn to play against each other in the tournament.
