Albion will kick off Premier League life with a home game against Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola’s side will visit the Amex on the weekend of August 12-13.

The fixture is a repeat of the Seagulls’ last home game in the top flight – in the closing weeks of the 1982-83 season which ended in relegation.

Chris Hughton’s men then go to Leicester and Watford before hosting West Brom.

They have four of the so-called ‘glamour’ away trips before the turn of the year – to Arsenal, Manchester United, Tottenham (at Wembley) and Chelsea, the last of which is currently listed for Boxing Day.

That period also includes a first ever visit to the London Stadium to face West Ham.

The calendar year ends with the long haul to Newcastle.

They complete their home programme with two games against potential title contenders – Tottenham and Manchester United.

If there is to be final day drama, it will come at Anfield.

Derbies against Crystal Palace are listed for November 28 at the Amex and April 14 at Selhurst Park.

There is an Easter fixture at home to Leicester.

Many of the precise dates and/or kick-off times will change due to TV broadcast and European fixtures.

But Albion fans now have a very good idea of how the season will pan out – and it’s Pep and Co up first.
