ALBION’S tough finish in the Premier League could get even harder.

They face the prospect of visiting Manchester City towards the end of the season, together with games against Spurs, Manchester United and Liverpool.

The Seagulls are scheduled to go to the Etihad on March 18.

That will be postponed if either side reaches the FA Cup quarter-finals, a distinct possibility with Albion at home to League Two Coventry in the fifth round on Saturday and City away to League One promotion chasers Wigan on Monday.

The earliest date then for the Premier League rearrangement could be the week commencing April 16, due to an international break after FA Cup quarter-final weekend and the Champions League quarter-finals.

That would leave Albion facing Manchester City, Spurs, Manchester United and Liverpool in four of their last five fixtures, along with a trip to Burnley.

City are as good as through to the last eight of the Champions League following a 4-0 win in the first leg at FC Basel last night.
