The first Nike Flight design, which boasted colours of white, black and orange, was released in the summer and lasted until November.

It was then replaced by the yellow winter ball, with supporters loving the comic book style design.

Though some Twitter users likened it to ‘a giant gobstopper’.

Revealing the new ball, a Premier League statement read: “The design has a ‘white/baltic blue/laser crimson/black’ colourway, with a white base joined by the same graphic, inspired by organic connectivity that featured on the first Flight ball this season and the hi-vis.

“Where this ball stands out from previous ones this season are the 12 signal pods.

“The circles across the ball’s surface, which drive enhanced visual performance, letting players read the pace and spin of the ball better.
