As Manchester City look to beat their bitter rivals United to the Premier League title, thoughts have already turned to next season's kit.

The club turned to their stars to provide inspiration for the new strip but the like of England goalkeeper Joe Hart, captain Vincent Kompany, Spanish ace David Silva and controversial striker Mario Balotelli all fluffed their lines in a reel of video bloopers.

Instead, City's fans have been asked to come up with an idea for the launch of the new strips which they hope will be worn by the league champions next term with Monday's decisive Manchester derby a must-win.

Goalkeeper Joe Hart said: 'We’ve got an incredible set of fans and this is a great way of rewarding their loyal and passionate support for the club.

'Our focus is always on the pitch so I think it’s better for the fans to take on the new Umbro kit launch.

'I’m sure they will come up with some weird and wonderful ideas.'

The winning entrants will see their idea become a reality as Umbro will professionally film and release videos to launch the new Manchester City kits.
