And they did the same last year after remastering the Gunners’ 1992 home shirt.

This Christmas is no different as the popular ‘bumblebee’ strip is back available to buy as part of the Adidas x Arsenal collection.

As well as the yellow and dark blue kit – notable for its diagonal stripes, old-school Arsenal crest and Adidas EQT logo – the collection also includes a sweatshirt, zip-up jacket and t-shirt.

Arsenal have released a promotional video for the new lineup, featuring the likes of Bukayo Saka, Kieran Tierney, Aaron Ramsdale, Emile Smith Rowe and club legend Ian Wright.

Commenting on the collection, Wright said: “I have amazing memories of playing in the Adidas EQT shirt during the 93-94 season.

“And it’s great to celebrate this era with such a comprehensive and appropriate collection.

“The lineup has all the classics and we had a great time on set playing our different roles.

“I even had to remind some of the lads and ladies in the first team that we won the Cup Winners’ Cup that season, so now that it’s back we have to win something!”

Those wishing to purchase any of the items will have to wait until December 13 when they will be available on the official Adidas and Arsenal websites.

Commenting on the kit, one user tweeted, “My god these retro kits are sexy.”

Another posted: “Damn Arsenal you kill with all those retro kits. My bank account doesn’t look healthy.”
