Arsenal Ladies made club history on Sunday by wearing a Puma shirt for the first time.

The side wore the strip on Sunday for their Continental Cup match against Chelsea at Boreham Wood, which Arsenal won 3-0 thanks to a double from Kelly Smith and one from Shinobu Ohno.

The club say that it was a "special, bespoke kit" for the match, but it does appear to look exactly the same as some of the leaked images of the men's ones which have been doing the rounds.

Linford Christie mistakenly leaked this picture in January - the two kits match

The men's kit will be officially unveiled on Thursday, and will be the first from Puma after replacing Nike as the club's kit manufacturers. The German sports brand signed a 10-year deal with the club, ending Nike's 20-year association.
