Gerhard Tremmel, the Swansea goalkeeper, had some major trouble early on in Swansea's game with Manchester City.

It was nothing to do with the Premier League's hottest strikeforce—it was putting on a fresh goalkeeping jersey.

The keeper's shirt was too close in colour to City's dark away kit, so a change was ordered early on in the match. Quite how nobody spotted it straight away is anyone's guess.

In any case, it's just as well it happened, because it gave us a few sweet moments of slapstick comedy. About half a minute's worth, in fact. 

2014: So far, the year of amusing on-field jersey-changing.
