The fourth is the standard home kit with one-colored red socks, while the fifth choice is the away with one-colored white socks.

Napoli, meanwhile, has registered four different kit variants (home, away, third + all-blue home).

Interestingly and quite logically, Liverpool is not the only team who had to register special versions of their kits. We expect that all New Balance teams competing in UEFA competitions in 2019-2020 had to register alternative versions with one-colored socks.

In fact, as reported by Museum of Jerseys, it is a similar situation to Arsenal in 2017-18. The Gunners’ first-choice socks were white with red, while their change set were solid red. The home socks weren’t allowed to be worn against the red of CSKA Moscow, so a plain white style was used.
