Premier League 2018/19 season will kick off on 11th of August this year. Manchester City will start their title defence against Arsenal at Emirates Stadium. Arsene Wenger did not do very well against Pep Guardiola but Unai Emery record against the Spaniard is even worse. Jose Mourinho will hope for a better campaign next season when he welcomes Leicester City at Old Trafford. Maurizio Sarri will open his League account for Chelsea away against Huddersfield Town. Liverpool attacking football will be re-ignited once again at Anfield against West Ham United while Spurs entertain Newcastle United at St. James Park. Today, as the countdown to the new season continues, we want to look at the five most expensive 2018/19 kits on sale at the moment.
5. Arsenal- £157
Arsenal said goodbye to Arsene Wenger last season. The Frenchman will always be remembered for the great work he did at the club for over 21 years at the helm. Unai Emery will try to get a piece of that great history when he starts his tenure next season. The fans will want to see what he is made of and that means purchasing the Gunners ‘Elite’ kit which costs £157. For those who can’t afford that, the ordinary full kit is available for only £92. This season, even Tottenham Hotspurs will have a more expensive kit than their Emirates neighbours.
4. Manchester City- £159.85

Manchester City takes the fourth spot when it comes to the kit prizes. Etihad fans will need to pay £159.85 to get the ‘Elite’ kit in 2018/19 season. For those can’t afford that, the ordinary full kit is available for only £109.85. Pep Guardiola entertained them in 2017/18 season and this might encourage more fans to buy more kits this season.
3. Tottenham Hotspurs- £160

Tottenham Hotspurs wants to open the new stadium with only the most loyal fans. This is because their ‘Elite’ kit will not be a walk in the park for many fans. They will need to dig deeper in their pockets to get £160 to buy it. For those who can’t afford that, the ordinary full kit is a bit cheaper. It is going for £110 which will make sense to many of their fans. For the first time, their kits are more expensive than those of their bitter neighbour’s Arsenal.
