Arsenal keeper Bernd Leno forced to wear white away shirt because his green and black kits clash with Wolves

ARSENAL were forced into a bizarre kit change against Wolves – with Bernd Leno donning the Gunners' away shirt.

Nuno Espirito Santo's side travelled to Emirates Stadium on Sunday bidding to condemn their hosts to a third straight league game without a win.


But the visitors also took a kit combination that led to an unusual decision in the Gunners' dressing room.

Arsenal goalkeeper Leno typically dons a black kit for home games, with a green option when playing away.

On Sunday, Wolves lined up in their gold-and-black kit with goalkeeper Rui Patricio in his green top.

With the away side's reserves left in the Midlands, the onus fell on the Gunners to avoid the clash.

Leno does possess a peach alternative that he has donned earlier in the season – which was presumably deemed too similar to his own team's red shirts.

Fans were left baffled after the switch was confirmed.


Twitter user Rash joked: "The real reason is Leno will play at RW if Willian doesn't perform."

Another fan asked: "Why are we (the home team) changing shirt for Wolves?"

George fumed: "If our and Wolves' GK kits clash, make them change it not us. As always we are paying the price for it. I know it's something miniscule but it's always us who have to bow down."

While Em added: "Third kit would’ve made much more sense but COYG."
