The celebrations accompanying Albion's promotion to the Premier League are also a reminder that a lot can change in a year.

Tottenham's visit marks the first anniversary of the Seagulls' return to the top flight.

It was not confirmed officially until 7.55pm in the evening, when Huddersfield were held to a draw by Derby County.

The party started long before that, because of Albion's vastly superior goal difference.

The players invaded the press box after goals by Glenn Murray and Solly March secured a 2-1 win against Wigan. They knew at that moment they were up.

The Argus: For some, like Lewis Dunk (far left), and Dale Stephens and Gaetan Bong in the centre at the back, either side of Beram Kayal, the Premier League has been everything they would have wished for.

The trio have remained regulars in Chris Hughton's team. Shane Duffy too (second from right at the back). For several others, opportunities have been limited or in some cases non-existent.

Kayal will be a key figure against Spurs in the absence of Davy Propper, serving the second of a three-match suspension for his red card in the draw with Huddersfield.

The Israeli midfielder has, for the most part, been on the fringes due to the effective combination between Stephens and Propper.

Kayal had to wait until December for his Premier League debut, in the 2-0 defeat by Spurs at Wembley. The assignments have been particularly tough for him - his other starts were at Chelsea, Everton, Crystal Palace and at home to Leicester.

Oliver Norwood, blonde hair just about visible next to the bare-chested Tomer Hemed (front row, far left), has spent the season bidding for a second successive promotion from the Championship on loan to Fulham.

The Argus: In front of Norwood, Connor Goldson, (back to camera) has missed out on loan moves and all except two of Albion's 33 Premier League outings, due to the form at the heart of the defence of Duffy and Dunk.

Hemed too has become a frustrated onlooker in the fight for forward places, squeezed out of contention altogether since the January captures of Jurgen Locadia and Leo Ulloa.

The three players immediately behind the Israeli striker are no longer at the club. To the right, winger Jamie Murphy, short of game time, joined boyhood idols Glasgow Rangers in January.

To the left of Murphy, on-loan Fikayo Tomori and, behind him, Chuba Akpom, returned to parent clubs Chelsea and Arsenal respectively. Tomori is now on loan at Hull and Akpom to Belgian side Sint-Truiden.

Pan across to the righthand side and Duffy is an exception as a regular in Hughton's starting eleven.

The Argus: After starring in the Championship, Anthony Knockaert (with mic) has struggled to make the same type of impact in the Premier League.

The emotion-charged Frenchman could make his first home start against Spurs since last month's win at the Amex against their North London neighbours Arsenal after serving a ban for his red card at Everton.

Either side of Knockaert, striker Sam Baldock (left) and winger Jiri Skalak (right) have not made a Premier League start between them. Skalak has not featured at all, Baldock only twice as a substitute.

Behind Baldock, Bruno is still an integral part of the squad after recently signing another one-year contract, although the veteran Spanish skipper's influence has been more in the dressing room of late than on the pitch.

Bruno has lost the right-back spot to Ezequiel Schelotto since the defeat at West Brom in January.

To the right of Bruno, goalkeeper Niki Maenpaa has been third-choice behind Mathew Ryan and Tim Krul, while the unfortunate Steve Sidwell has been sidelined by serious injuries all season, first to his back and then an ankle.

Uwe Huenemeier (head bowed) has in company with Goldson been a victim of the consistency of Dunk and Duffy. Richie Towell (to Duffy's left) has spent the season on loan to Rotherham, trying to help them back into the Championship.

Several of those celebrating a year ago are probably in the closing stages of their Albion careers - but it's a moment they and the fans will never forget.
