Just 72 short days ahead of the new 2018/19 Premier League campaign kicking off, Nike have revealed the ball that will be used to score all the goals and do all the passes next season.

The Merlin will replace the erstwhile Ordem as Nike’s official match-ball of choice and, as you might expect, it’s rounder, more aerodynamic, etc, than ever before…

Not sure if the ‘fewer panels = more goals’ claim would stand up to any kind of scientific scrutiny, but we’re willing to take Nike’s word for it.

After all, they’ve never lied to us before.
