Arsenal Have Been Forced to Wear Different Kit For Carabao Cup Final And Fans Are Fuming

Arsenal are set to play this weekend's Carabao Cup final in an all red kit - but the club's loyal supporters are absolutely furious at the idea.

Arsene Wenger's side will travel to Wembley for this weekend's showpiece against Pep Guardiola's hotly-tipped Manchester City side, and whilst they've been given the nod to wear their home kit, they'll be looking slightly different than they usually do.

It turns out Arsenal's white shorts and socks clash with City's, and the FA's strict rules on kits means the Gunners will need to turn out wearing red shorts and socks.


Arsenal have worn their current red and white home kit since the 1970s but were forced to turn out in all red earlier this season in the Premier League clash against West Brom.


Regardless of the reason, there's a lot of Gooners who are very unhappy about the decision:



For only the second time in 39 years, Arsenal will wear red shorts and in a cup final of all fixtures. They sported the red short look for their visit to West Brom on New Year's Eve.


What do you think of the change? Should it really matter this much to supporters?
