Chevrolet has shared a picture of Manchester United trio Matteo Darmian, Memphis Depay and Wayne Rooney in the new home kit for the first time.

Memphis certainly looks a bit different as he’s had a haircut and got rid of his mutton chop sideburns since returning from the pre-season tour.

All players look sharp in what is, overall, a pretty good new kit from Adidas.

The retro shoulder stripes are a kick-back to the older pre-Premier League era kits and although the Chevrolet logo dominates the shirt, understandably so given how much they pay for the sponsorship, it’s certainly an improvement on Nike’s kits.

All three of Darmian, Rooney and Memphis are likely to start for Man United against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday and it’s going to be very interesting to see how the new signings settle into the Premier League.

Serie A and Eredivisie football won’t prepare them for the intensity of English football but both Memphis and Darmian showed some great potential on tour, so there’s an excitement building about getting to see them in action.
