Alireza Jahanbakhsh celebrates with Neal Maupay after scoring against Chelsea.

For the opening game of the campaign, Frank Lampard’s Chelsea make the journey down to the south coast for what will be a Monday night kick-off.

The trip to Stamford Bridge takes place in mid-April where the Seagulls will go in search of their first win at the home of the Blues. 

Our matches against Chelsea last season saw Alireza Jahanbakhsh find the back of the net with Albion’s Goal of the Season in the 1-1 draw at home on New Year’s Day, having lost 2-0 at Stamford Bridge earlier on in the campaign.

Crystal Palace

Neal Maupay was on target in this season's reverse fixture against Crystal Palace.

These keenly anticipated fixtures will see Albion head to Selhurst Park in mid-October, before Roy Hodgson’s team come to the Amex in February.

Neal Maupay’s emphatic finish at Selhurst Park last season should have yielded all three points, but Wilfried Zaha grabbed a late equaliser. Palace secured a victory on the south coast when they visited just before lockdown, with Jordan Ayew scoring the only goal.


Tottenham Hotspur

Aaron Connolly celebrates scoring against Tottenham Hotspur.

Albion head to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Halloween, before welcoming Spurs to the Amex at the end of January 2021.

There was debut delight for Aaron Connolly when we last hosted Spurs as he netted twice in a thrilling 3-0 win, before Jose Mourinho’s side got their revenge with a 2-1 victory over the Seagulls in the reverse fixture on Boxing Day

Anthony Knockaert in action for the Albion.

The Cottagers make their way to the Amex for the first of two midweek games, before Scott Parker’s side host the Seagulls just over a month later at Craven Cottage.

Fulham’s visit could see Anthony Knockaert’s return to the Amex. The Seagulls have only played Fulham twice in the Premier League, drawing once and losing the other.

West Ham United

Home: Tuesday 11th May 2021

Away: Saturday 26th December 2020

Albion head to the London Stadium on Boxing Day, before the Hammers are welcomed to the Amex towards the end of the season.

One of Albion’s games of last season came against the Hammers back in February when Glenn Murray grabbed an equaliser to make it 3-3, Albion having been two goals down with ten minutes to play. That fightback also helped Albion maintain their unbeaten Premier League record against West Ham, having drawn the previous encounter at the Amex to make it six without defeat against the Hammers in the top flight.

Albion striker Neal Maupay celebrates his winning goal against Arsenal.

Another festive fixture when the Seagulls will be looking to complete back-to-back home victories against the Gunners, before wrapping up the campaign with a visit to the Emirates.

Albion completed a first Premier League double over the Gunners last season, both games ending 2-1 with Neal Maupay finding the winner in both fixtures.
