Manchester United was trying to step back in time in their bid to land the elusive title by going back to a new jersey, that had roots in 1878. The Red Devils were preparing to launch a yellow and green original Newton Heath away strip later that month.

United was formed in 1878 as Newton Heath LYR, they turned pro seven years later before adopting their current name in 1902.
