Paul Pogba (Manchester United) adidas Predator Pulse

While he may have teased an upcoming collaboration with Stella McCartney this week, last week Paul Pogba laced up in the Predator Pulse from the adidas 'UCL' Pack. However, he was back in the current Predator Freak+ for United's loss to Leicester on the weekend.

Back at the end of September, Luis Alberto was spotted in an upcoming adidas colourway for the Predator, and it's on display again, this time on the feet of Juventus midfielder Sofie Junge Pedersen in her side's 2-1 loss to Chelsea in the Champions League. The white look has been spotted across the full Three Stripe lineup as we obviously near a launch.

Last week we got our first look at a prototype of the next generation adidas Predator on the feet of Jude Bellingham, and now that's been followed up by Arsenal players Aarson Ramsdale and Pablo Mari giving us an even better look at the new design, which looks to draw on the Predator LZ.

Brice Samba (Nottingham Forest) PUMA Future Z 1.2

Nottingham Forest v Blackpool is not quite the Champions League fixture that PUMA designed the 'Under The Lights' pack for, but that didn't stop Forest keeper Brice Samba from lacing up in the Future Z 1.2 for the match.

Newcastle got their new regime underway with a 3-2 loss to Spurs, and Alan Saint-Maximin opted to wear the PUMA Ultra 1.3 from the Manchester City pack, complete with sky blue trim. That pack is worn by City's academy players... ASM trying to say something??

Trent Alexander Arnold (Liverpool) Under Armour Clone Magnetico

Liverpool romped to a 5-0 win against Watford on the weekend, and while attention may have been on Sadio Mane and his 100th Premier League goal, or the world class finish from Mo Salah, we spotted Trent Alexander Arnold in a new pink colourway of his Under Armour Clone Magnetico.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles (Arsenal) adidas X Speedflow +

Ainsley Maitland-Niles continues to be frustrated by a lack of playing time at Arsenal, and that's not the only uncertainty surrounding his game. The England man also seems to be between boot contracts, flitting between Nike, Adidas and PUMA boots. This week he wore the adidas X Speedflow+ from the 'Escape Light' pack.

Didier Drogba (Marseille) Nike Mercurial Vapor XI

Didier Drogba proved you never lose it, bagging a hat trick in a charity "Heroes" football match between former Olympique de Marseille's players and Team Unicef. He wore special custom Gold Nike Mercurial Vapor XI boots and he gave them to a fan in the stands after the game. Legendary status secured.
