Albion fans enjoyed their last midweek outing of the season despite a loss against Europe-chasing Chelsea.

Fans were all smiles ahead of the game as Brighton prepared for Chelsea but watched in disamy as goals either side of half time saw them fall to defeat in a tight 2-1 contest.

Despite losing Albion will look ahead to the final game of the season at the Amex this Sunday.

The floodlit match attracted fans from other clubs across the world - supporters wearing Paris Saint Germain shirts and Besiktas kits were in the stands to enjoy the action.

Despite the buoyant home support, on-form Chelsea striker Cole Palmer broke the deadlock towards the end of the first half and Christopher Nkunku extended the lead after the break.

Danny Welbeck clawed back at goal in the 97th minute and Roberto De Zerbi said Albion should have had a penalty when Simon Adingra was fouled in the box midway through the second half.

Fans will also wait with bated breath to hear how skipper Lewis Dunk fares after coming off with a knee injury as he eyes a place in England's Euros squad.
