Everton will wear last season’s third kit against Crystal Palace on Saturday because of a colour clash.
The Toffees’ current kits are too similar to Palace’s home shirt.
And with Marco Silva’s side not unveiling their new away kit until August 23, they have been forced to wheel out last season’s third white strip.
Everton, who are looking to improve on their eighth-placed 2018/19 finish, have made exciting summer additions in Andre Gomes, Moise Kean and Alex Iwobi.
The latter is not in the squad to play Palace, while Kean is on the bench.
And it could have been an even better summer for the Toffees if they had landed their number one transfer target Wilfried Zaha, who is also among the substitutes at Selhurst Park.
Everton had a £52million bid rejected by Crystal Palace, who were reportedly holding out for £80million.
Silva said: “When you are planning a squad you plan with some names, and I did my job with the names to my football structure. We cannot just have one name.
“The market was difficult and when we lost [Ademola] Lookman we looked for a winger, not two wingers. We have tried to do the deals and we’ve achieved a good player.

“It was not just our club that had an interest in Zaha, not just us.
“He’s a very good player but he’s not our player, he’s Crystal Palace’s player. If he will play or not against us it is for (manager) Roy (Hodgson) to decide, it’s not for me.
“It will be a tough, tough, tough game for us with him or without him.”
