This season we will be digging deep to tell the stories of the rich history, tradition and culture from around the Premier League and give you the answers to things you want to know more about.
The reason Arsenal wear red shirts will shock you and it is down to another Premier League club who were promoted back to the top-flight in 2022.
Let’s go back to the start. Picture this: a Scottish man David Danskin worked with several other Scots at the Arsenal Armament Factory in Woolwich, South London. He decided to set up a football club in October 1886 for recreational purposes.
15 men paid six shillings (just over a dollar) each to join and the club was named Dial Square after the clock above the entrance to the factory.
What next? They literally had nothing. Nowhere to play, no ball and no kit. However, Danskin did pay three shillings out of his own pocket to buy a ball. So they were on their way…
But what about the kit? It was all thanks to factory workers who had arrived from Nottingham and had played for Nottingham Forest.
Fred Beardsley was one of the former Forest players who had brought their old kit along with them and he asked his contacts at Forest if they could help Dial Square with a few more shirts.
Forest said, ‘no problem!’ and sent a full set of shirts (and even another ball). That shade of red sort of looked like blackcurrant and to keep costs down Dial Square kept the shirts the same color and they were away.
Here is more info from Arsenal on the shirts: “This original kit was a dark red, with long sleeves, a collar and three buttons down the front. The shirt was worn with white knee length shorts and heavy woollen socks with blue and white hoops. The goalkeeper wore the same attire apart from the shirt – which was a hand knitted cream woollen polo neck jumper. It was this dark red kit that the team wore during their first season at Highbury in 1913/14.”
Arsenal played in that dark red color until their legendary boss Herbert Chapman decided to change the colors to a brighter red shirt with white sleeves in the 1920s.
Nobody knows exactly why Chapman did that but some tales say it was because he saw someone at the stadium wearing a red sweater over a white shirt, while another says he played golf with famous cartoonist Tom Webster who wore those colors.
Fun fact: the reason Sparta Prague wear this shade of red to this day is because their president, Dr Petric, visited London in 1906 and loved the shirts of a team which was then called Woolwich Arsenal (Arsenal today) so much that he told Sparta to change their colors. And they did.
Even though the shade has changed slightly over the years, the reason Arsenal wear red is because some of their first-ever players called in a favor from Nottingham Forest over 1890s. Remarkable.

Brentford host Bournemouth in west London on Saturday as Thomas Frank’s side look to continue their unlikely push for European qualification.
STREAM LIVE BRENTFORD v BOURNEMOUTH
The Bees are just two points off sixth place heading into this weekend and following their 3-1 win against Liverpool they’re full of confidence. Thomas Frank has done a superb job and they continue to be a very difficult team to play against, even with Ivan Toney missing for their marquee win against Liverpool.
Bournemouth are heading in the opposite direction as they’ve lost five-straight games in all competitions. Gary O’Neil has really struggled since being handed the managers job on a permanent basis and all of a sudden the Cherries are just one point above the relegation zone.
Here’s everything you need for Brentford vs Bournemouth.


Kick off: 12:30pm ET, Saturday
TV Channel: NBC
Online: Stream via NBCSports.com
The Bees keep on buzzing and even with key players missing through injury they keep surprising everyone. Frank has created such a tight unit and everyone understands their job. They are a horrible team to play against and their hunger was incredible against Liverpool. Their ability from set pieces is also a huge factor to their success and this all seems very similar to when Burnley stunned everyone and qualified for the Europa League.
Bournemouth need reinforcements, fast, and their new American owners have promised to spend in January. Nobody expected them to stay up this season and they’re already ahead of where they were supposed to be in terms of points gained. But they need some sort of boost because they have zero momentum right now.
Bryan Mbuemo, Rico Henry and Yoane Wissa were superb against Liverpool, while Christian Norgaard, Ben Mee and David Raya are all so important to the defensive solidity of the Bees.
Bournemouth’s main man is Dominic Solanke but the Cherries need to get him the ball more in dangerous areas, while Lewis Cook does his best to dictate the tempo from central midfield.
Ivan Toney should return, which is a huge boost, while Aaron Hickey and Frank Onyeka are working their way back to full fitness. Shandon Baptiste and Pontus Jansson remain out. Does Frank bring Toney straight back in for Wissa? The latter scored (and had two others disallowed) against Liverpool and took his chance. But still, Ivan Toney is Ivan Toney.

Marcus Tavernier, David Brooks, Neto, Junior Stanislas and Ryan Fredericks are out through injury, while Adam Smith is suspended. Jefferson Lerma should be fit to play. Gary O’Neil has plenty of options and it will be intriguing to see if he starts both Kieffer Moore and Solanke up top to go more direct and play Brentford at their own game.

March staked Roberto De Zerbi’s Seagulls to a two-goal lead after halftime and Brighton has now scored two or more goals in five-straight Premier League contests and won four of them. Danny Welbeck completed the scoring in the 81st minute after Liverpool showed brief signs of life.
Liverpool was largely controlled for the first hour of the match, conceding two goals in the first eight minutes of the second half in a manner that was entirely befitting their performance.
Brighton moves ahead of Liverpool into seventh place with 30 points. Both teams have played 18 matches and the Seagulls are two points clear of the Reds and five points off fourth-place Newcastle United.
[ MORE: How to watch Premier League in USA ]
We’ll get to Brighton in a moment, but let’s begin with Liverpool and start by saying that there are excuses for the Reds with injuries and fixture congestion but they weren’t excuses they were taking in previous years. Given their spending, losing to Brentford by two, drawing Wolves, and losing to Brighton by three consecutively just shouldn’t happen to this club.
This, frankly, wasn’t close and it looked absolutely uninspired. Given Jurgen Klopp’s reputation and acumen, the only excuse worth proffering is that the Reds are just finally empty after years of endless competition. Manchester City, at the moment, may want a piece of that conversation as well.
But Liverpool has now allowed eight goals in its last three matches across all competitions and all three could arguably be losses given the legislation of Mohamed Salah’s offside non-offside goal in the 2-2 cup draw with Wolves.
Pick a Liverpool player outside of, perhaps, Ibrahima Konate, Mohamed Salah, and Thiago Alcantara and you’re either talking about a player who was poor, lethargic, or both. Trent Alexander-Arnold was a passenger outside of possession aside from an early goal-line clearance. Joel Matip, Andy Robertson, and Jordan Henderson looked steps off the pace. Cody Gakpo… well, we learned he was out there when he nearly got Liverpool back in business with 20 minutes to play.
And let’s credit Brighton for the above, too. The Seagulls exposed Liverpool with pace, electricity, and effort. The tactics were there, too, as De Zerbi flexed his depth without wantaway Leandro Trossard and with 18-year-old Evan Ferguson continuing to make a bright case in attack.
Ultimately, though, Alexis Mac Allister continues to show the brilliance of Brighton’s talent identification. An $8 million (approximation) buy in 2019 is now probably 10 times that in value, and Mac Allister really doesn’t have to be anxious to leave town. Moises Caicedo, too.
Kaoru Mitoma looks the truth, too, and when Brighton sells Trossard — assuming they do — the Seagulls can point to a possible discount given his complaints while adding him to a list of “Can Brighton survive their sale?” that already includes Marc Cucurella, Yves Bissouma, and Ben White
And these shows of strength are happening despite Enock Mwepu’s heart ailment ending his career so early. Even in the feverish fight of the Premier League, Brighton looks a mainstay.
Solly March
Alexis Mac Allister
Ibrahima Konate
Kaoru Mitoma
Danny Welbeck
Brighton has a week to prepare for a trip to Leicester City on Jan. 21, while Liverpool has a Tuesday date at Wolves for an FA Cup replay before a visit from Chelsea on Jan. 21.
“Congratulations to Brighton who played a super game against a bad opponent,” Jurgen Klopp said after the game.
“I can’t remember a good phase, period, whatever. Tried to change formation, it didn’t work, my fault. Second half, abd start, being 1-0 down and the rest… it was really too easy for Brighton. The organization was completely gone. It was just too easy. It was deserved defeat.”
How do you fix this? “Organizing it. Doing better than today should be easy because I can’t remember a worse game. … There was no sign of this performance before the game. It was nothing I thought yesterday or this morning could happen.
Brighton scored four against Everton one week after conceding four to Arsenal. It seems likely to find itself in another high-scoring affair as Liverpool will not have Virgil van Dijk for this one.
Liverpool lost 3-1 at Brentford and gets a similar test on Saturday. The visitors followed up their loss to the Bees with a fortunate 2-2 draw against Wolves in the FA Cup. Can Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez, and Co. deliver the goods?
QUESTIONABLE: Leandro Trossard (calf). OUT: Jakub Moder (knee).

Southampton secured a huge comeback win and piled the pressure on Frank Lampard as Nathan Jones picked up his first win as a Premier League manager.
FULL MATCH REPLAY
Amadou Onana put Everton ahead just before half time but James Ward-Prowse was the hero for Saints as their skipper scored a fine equalizer and he then whipped home a trademark free kick for the winner. It was a deserved victory for Southampton.
Frank Lampard’s Everton are now without a win in their last nine games in all competitions (and four PL games in a row at home) and there is growing fan unrest, once again, as Evertonians hit out at owner Farhad Moshiri, long-time chairman Bill Kenwright and the rest of the Everton board. A sit-in protest took place after the game and Everton released a statement ahead of the game saying their directors will not be present at Goodison due to safety concerns.
As for Southampton, they’ve had a huge week after three wins on the spin in all competitions with victory at Crystal Palace in the FA Cup followed up by a huge shock in midweek to beat Manchester City to reach the League Cup semifinals and this victory was the first for Nathan Jones as a Premier League manager. It moves Southampton to 15 points for the season (level with Everton) and gives them huge belief they can move out of the relegation zone.


These are two teams, and clubs, heading in different directions right now. Southampton have reached the League Cup semifinals, new boss Nathan Jones finally has his first win as a Premier League boss and Saints’ new owners have invested in their squad already in January and one year into their reign they have a plan and are trying to drag themselves out of the bottom three with a brave strategy of signing talented youngsters. Everything is opposite for Everton.
The Toffees are in freefall with nine defeats in a row in all competitions and amid fan protests, the board being told to stay home amid safety fears and Everton now only off the bottom of the table due to goal difference, everything is going wrong. They don’t have funds to invest and it seems that unless a new owner arrives, they will be destined for relegation battles. Will Lampard be in charge to try and steer them clear this season? Right now he’s not being blamed too much for this mess but after a four-straight defeat at home, this time to the only team below them in the table, Lampard can have no complaints if Everton’s board pull the plug on him and go into full safety mode.
🙌 This is what winning your first Premier League game as a manager means.
Nathan Jones has had a very tough start to life at #SaintsFC but the last week has been extraordinary.
Players totally behind him and just look at that passion. Love it. pic.twitter.com/STvak9XiXE

James Ward-Prowse: Who else!? Hit the post in the first half, scored a beauty as he timed his run into the box perfectly and then whipped home a trademark free kick for the winner. The Saints skipper is thriving in his new advanced role.
Duje Caleta-Car: Has made a huge difference since coming back into the team at center back.
Amadou Onana: Got Everton’s goal and had several driving runs from midfield. Has so much quality and needs more help from those around him.
Everton vs Southampton
Kick off: 10am ET, Saturday
TV Channel: USA Network
Online: Stream via NBCSports.com
FULL TIME – Everton 1-2 Southampton: Wild scenes in the away end as Nathan Jones and his players celebrate a massive victory for Saints. What a win that is for them. But what a bad defeat that is for Everton as the fan unrest continues and the home supporters are protesting afterwards.
5 minutes plus stoppage time to go. It is tense at Goodison Park.
GOALLL! He’s done it again. James Ward-Prowse whips home a beautiful free kick to put Southampton 2-1 up with 12 minutes to go. Wow. What a turnaround in this second half.
🔥 As good as penalty kick for James Ward-Prowse. My word. #SaintsFC‘s skipper scores his 2nd of the game to put them 2-1 up at Everton and turn the game around. Love the golf putt celebration this time. pic.twitter.com/UMI4Hd80Gb

Chance! Saints are having a real go again now but Everton look dangerous  from set pieces. A cross finds Godfrey at the back post but he somehow steers the ball wide from one yard out. It came very quickly at him and with players flying everywhere around him.
CROSSBAR! How did that not go in!? A deflected shot from Dominic Calvert-Lewin loops up, hit the underside of the bar and bounces out. So close for Everton.
GOALLLL! James Ward-Prowse equalize at the start of the second half. That is deserved.
HALF TIME: Everton 1-0 Southampton – The Toffees pounce just before the break to go ahead through Onana’s header but Saints have created the better chances. Typical relegation scrap at Goodison. Can Southampton put away one of their chances early in the second half?
Save! Jordan Pickford makes a superb stop right on half time to deny James Ward-Prowse. He gets down low and pushes the shot against the post.
GOALLL! Everton take the lead against Southampton. A corner from the right is headed home by Amadou Onana, who towers above Elyounoussi.
Huge goal for the Toffees and it comes against the run of play. #EFC 1-0 #SaintsFC

Ibrahima Diallo horribly shanks a shot wide after Saints win it back high up the pitch. The visitors are having the better of it as we approach half time.
Close! So close for Southampton, twice. Elyounoussi’s deflected shoot loops just over Che Adams and wide. From the resulting corner Pickford saves Salisu’s header.
Chance! First big opportunity of the game as Mykolenko plays in a good low ball but Demarai Gray lifts his shot over the bar from a tight angle.
KICK OFF! It is a fiery atmosphere at Goodison. Southampton have started okay but neither team has created a clear opening. Yet.
The Everton fans also gave their team quite the welcome outside Goodison. Very similar to scenes at the end of last season.

Everton have also released a statement calling for calm and saying that their directors and key officials will not be attending the game due to safety concerns as fan unrest grows and protests are planned.

Before we kick off, there is a lot going on around this game. First up, Everton fans found out where Southampton were staying and set off fireworks early in the morning at around 2am.

Everton are in freefall once again. They have been better defensively for most of this season but last time out against Brighton they conceded four and it could have been more. There is growing unrest from the home fans at Goodison and this game feels like a pivotal moment in their season. Moshiri backed Lampard publicly ahead of this game and perhaps that will settle things down?
Southampton will be full of confidence after playing extremely well and beating Manchester City in the League Cup quarterfinals to back up an FA Cup third round win at Crystal Palace last weekend. The jury is still out on Nathan Jones from most Saints fans and that will be the case until they move off the bottom of the table and start to pick up points in the Premier League. Still, with a few new signings already in January there is renewed optimism in the air at St Mary’s.
Amadou Onana is Everton’s main man in midfield and he is back after his suspension, which is a huge boost. Jordan Pickford continues to do his best in goal, while Demarai Gray is a real threat on the counter.
Southampton’s captain James Ward-Prowse is getting back to his best form, while Sekou Mara and Adam Armstrong have chipped in with goals in the last week. Having 19-year-old midfielder Romeo Lavia back fit and firing is huge for Saints.
Nathan Patterson, James Garner, Michael Keane and Andros Townsend all remain out injured, so that means Seamus Coleman comes in at right wing-back and Amadou Onana slots straight back into central midfield. Alex Iwobi has recovered from an ankle injury which is a big boost.

Tino Livramento has had a set back after his lengthy layoff, while Juan Laris, Theo Walcott and Alex McCarthy are getting closer but remain out. Armel Bella-Kotchap is out for this game but could return next week, while new signings Mislav Orsic and Carlos Alcaraz are both on the bench. Nathan Jones brings in Che Adams, Mohamed Elyounoussi and Samuel Edozie to the starting lineup.
Taking on the Toffees 🍬
