Fans convinced West Ham, Aston Villa and Burnley have all SWAPPED kits as 'big overlap' spotted | The Sun

FANS are convinced that three Premier League teams have all swapped shirts this summer.

West Ham, Aston Villa and Burnley have always had similar home kits due to their club colours of claret and blue.

However, this summer fans are more sure that they have been muddled up.

West Ham's shirt for the upcoming season has been dubbed the 'Anthem shirt' as it pays tribute to the club's iconic song I'm forever blowing bubbles as it has bubbles printed on it.

In a similar fashion Villa's latest edition also has a subtle print of soundwaves taken from fans signing Allez, Allez, Allez.

While Burnley's new shirt is inspired by the club's home shirt worn for the 1994 season.

There is one overlap as Burnley's new shirt is sponsored by W88, a recent sponsor of Villa to add to the confusion.

All three feature a main claret body and blue sleeves, but fans are sure there the kits are more typical of the other clubs.

One fan Tweeted: "I know there's a big overlap between Villa/West Ham/Burnley but this is quite simply a Burnley shirt and I won't hear any different."

Another wrote: "Villa's shirt this season is a Burnley shirt and Burnley's shirt is a Villa shirt."

A fourth said: "Burnley one is literally West Ham’s with a collar on it."

While a fifth added: "Further to this – amazingly, we find ourselves in a situation where West Ham have an Aston Villa kit, Aston Villa have a Burnley kit and Burnley have a West Ham kit."

A sixth pointed out: "Burnley’s is a West Ham kit with Villa’s sponsor from a few years back."

West Ham used to play in navy but adopted the claret and blue colours in 1899 as one story claims that right back Charlie Dove received the Villa kit from his father, William.

William Dove was a national sprinter and challengers four Villa players to a race for a bet while in Birmingham.

After he beat the footballers they were unable to pay and one of the players offered a complete team kit to Dove as payment.

Despite the similarities between the three current kits there is a bi difference in prices.

West Ham's home shirt is the most expensive at £75, Aston Villa's is priced at £70 while Burnley's is the cheapest at £55.
