Neal Maupay celebrates scoring against Arsenal.

Albion completed a first Premier League double over the Gunners last season, registering two 2-1 victories. Neal Maupay scored the winner both at the Emirates and the Amex – the latter coming in the first game after a lengthy break owing to the COVID-19 outbreak. Nicolas Pepe opened the scoring with a bending effort into the top corner before Lewis Dunk scrambled the ball over the line to equalise. Maupay then scored the winner after good work by Aaron Connolly and Alexis Mac Allister.

Lewis Dunk celebrates his goal to halve Liverpool's lead at Anfield last season.

Albion produced an impressive performance and were valiant in defeat when the teams met at Anfield in November. Virgil van Dijk’s two headers had the home side in control, but the Seagulls rallied after the break.

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker was sent off after 76 minutes, before Lewis Dunk’s quickly taken free-kick halved the deficit with 11 minutes to play and Albion came close to an equaliser in the final stages, but the home side hung on.

The Reds also won at the Amex in July. Goals from Mohammed Salah and Jordan Henderson put the champions ahead before Leandro Trossard pulled one back. Salah would have the final say, though, heading home Andy Robertson’s corner as it finished 3-1.

Albion's players celebrate Aaron Connolly's second goal.

The Seagulls produced arguably one of their performance of the season last year when they defeated Spurs 3-0 at the Amex in October. A goal from Neal Maupay and a brace from Aaron Connolly were enough to give Graham Potter’s men an impressive win on home soil.

The reverse fixture at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Boxing Day ended in a 2-1 victory for the home side. Adam Webster headed the Seagulls in front before goals from Harry Kane and Dele Alli turned the match around.
