Several Arsenal fans are fuming over a strange decision from the English Football League ahead of Sunday’s meeting with Manchester City in the League Cup final.

With all hopes of winning the Premier League now gone and no place in the FA Cup, Arsenal will see Sunday’s cup final as a major opportunity to win some silverware this season.

But for fans who are usually superstitious, the EFL’s decision over the match kits will be hard to accept.

The competition’s governing body has ordered Arsenal to not wear their traditional white shorts and white socks for Sunday’s clash due to concerns over a clash of colours with Manchester City.

That means Arsenal will wear the same unusual colours from the 1-1 draw against West Brom back in December.

On that occasion at the Hawthorns, the Gunners wore red shorts and red socks in a game for first time in nearly 40 years and to the dissatisfaction of many fans on social media, that colour combination will be brought back on Sunday.

The decision is certainly a strange one since Arsenal played against Man City in last season’s FA Cup semi-final without any kit changes of that sort being made.
