Ranking every Manchester United home shirt of the Premier League era

Quick Reads

Manchester United have been the most successful team in England in the modern era – and they’ve had some pretty impressive kits in that time as well.

We’ve ranked each and every home shirt Manchester United have worn in the Premier League to date.

Note: We based our ranking on a vote we took in 2017, so if you’re unhappy with the order, you’ve only got yourself – or at least your 2017 self – to blame. If you do want to slag us off, tweet @planetfutebol.

20. 2018-19

The black stripes that cover the bottom half of the shirt are meant to be a nod to the club’s history, but it looks more like a barcode.

19. 1996-97

We’re still not sure why Umbro decided to move the United badge to the centre of the shirt. The strange sleeves and different colours don’t really help either.

18. 2016-17

Adidas tried something different with this kit. They shouldn’t have bothered.

17. 2014-15

Much like Louis van Gaal’s football, this kit was pretty forgettable.

16. 2009-10

Nike ruined three-years’ worth of good work in 2009-10. The black chevron leaves this like something a rugby league club would wear.

Still, Owen v Man City…

15. 2004-06

This would’ve been a nice shirt if the badge was in the right place.

14. 2010-11

After the chevron disaster, Nike went back to simplicity. Dimitar Berbatov still manages to make it look cool, though.

13. 2017-18

Essentially the same as the 2015-16 shirt but with a buttoned collar.

12. 2011-12

A decent effort and a good collar, but it was tainted by an awful season.

11. 2002-04

Diego Forlan struggling to get his shirt back on against Southampton springs to mind when we see this kit. In a good way.

10. 2019-20

A throwback to 1999 and we actually quite like the crest. Even the Chevrolet logo can’t ruin this kit.

9. 2012-13

Robin van Persie, Sir Alex Ferguson and a Premier League title.

8. 2000-02

Quite a smart and stylish kit that became associated with David Beckham. That can never be a bad thing.

7. 2013-14

The black button-down collar looked sleek and this shirt deserved better than the football that David Moyes served up.

6. 2006-07

A white v-neck, cuffs and a gold trim. What’s not to like? It’s no coincidence that United won the league while wearing this in 2007.

5. 1994-96

It’s not every day that you see a football stadium on a club kit, but somehow United managed to pull it off.

4. 2015-16

Adidas reclaimed the rights to produce United’s jerseys in 2015 and came back with a bang.

3. 1998-00

This iconic kit might just be more impressive than United’s Treble in 1999.

2. 1992-94

Eric Cantona. White collar. Enough said.

1. 2007-09

A clear winner. Nike kept things simple with this clean kit and the white stripe down the back makes it even better.
