Crystal Palace have launched their new three new kits for the 2020-21 campaign on Friday with the likes of Jordan Ayew, Jeffrey Schlupp and Christian Benteke posing – but Arsenal fans have reacted to Wilf Zaha’s absence.
With the 2020-21 Premier League campaign now fast approaching, clubs are beginning to get more involved in the transfer market and preparations for the new season – including announcing new kits.
Palace announced theirs, which sees the red and blue stripes somewhat thicker. They also confirmed a new white away kit, and a third kit which is predominantly black – with a red stripe down the middle and blue under the arms.
As aforementioned, Benteke, Ayew and Schlupp were pictured – as were Nathan Ferguson and Joel Ward. But 27-year-old attacker Zaha was not involved in the kit launch, amid reports he wants to leave Selhurst Park.
South London & Proud.

The Sun claimed earlier this week that while Arsenal are keen on Zaha, the emergence of Bukayo Saka could make a deal less of a priority. The Times, meanwhile, claim Palace may cash in on Zaha for a fee of just £40million.
Back in 2019, The Sun have quoted Zaha as saying he is an Arsenal fan. Now, Gunners fans reckon his absence from the Palace kit launch on Twitter is a sign that the former Manchester United star could leave.
