Newcastle have revealed their orange third kit for the 2019/20 season, with many supporters picking up on a similarity with a certain Premier League rival.

Another joked that: ‘If we use it at Molineux we might scrape a point,’ but another claimed that ‘looking like Wolves won’t make you play like them.’
The pattern chosen for the top is inspired by the St. James’ Park roof, showing the steel and glass structure that reaches out over the Milburn Stand and Leazes End.
The Magpies have already revealed their home and away kits for the coming season, which they begin with the visit of Arsenal on Sunday August 11.
