Brighton & Hove Albion travel to Vicarage Road in the first game of the 2018/19 Premier League season.

Brighton & Hove Albion will face Watford at Vicarage Road on the opening day of the 2018/19 Premier League season.

The Seagulls will begin their second consecutive season in the top flight against Javi Gracia’s men on Saturday 11th August, before hosting Manchester United at the Amex Stadium a week later. 

Chris Hughton’s side will then travel to Anfield to face Liverpool in their final game of August, before beginning September by hosting Fulham on the south coast on Saturday 1st September.

Albion then visit St Mary’s to face Southampton two weeks later, before Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City provide the opposition for the remaining two games of the month.

Matches against West Ham United, Newcastle United and Wolverhampton Wanderers make up October, and the Seagulls will then face Everton at Goodison Park in their first match of November.

Newly-promoted Cardiff City host Albion a week later on Saturday 10th November, before a home game against Leicester City rounds off the month. 

The Christmas period throughout December sees the side travel to the John Smith’s Stadium to face Huddersfield Town on the first day of the month, before hosting Crystal Palace three days later and travelling to Turf Moor to face Burnley on Saturday 8th December. 

Chelsea, AFC Bournemouth, Arsenal and Everton provide the rest of the month’s opposition, with the game against Unai Emery’s men coming on Boxing Day at the Amex.

The new calendar year begins with a trip to face West Ham United at the London Stadium, before Liverpool visit the Amex on Saturday 12th January. Hughton and the team visit Old Trafford to face Manchester United a week later, before January ends with a trip to Craven Cottage to face Fulham. 

Back-to-back home games kick off February as the Seagulls will face both Watford and Burnley, before trips to Stamford Bridge and the King Power Stadium to face Chelsea and Leicester City end the second month of 2019. 

March also sees Albion begin the month at home, this time against Huddersfield Town, before Crystal Palace, Cardiff City and Southampton make up the remainder of the matches for the Seagulls. 

The penultimate month of the season begins with an away game against Tottenham Hotspur, and Eddie Howe’s AFC Bournemouth side will make the short trip along the south coast seven days later. A trip to Molineux to face Wolverhampton Wanderers is on Saturday 20th April, and the month ends with a home game against Newcastle United.

The final two matches of the season in May see Albion travel to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal on Saturday 4th May, before the 2018/19 season ends with a game against reigning champions Manchester City at the Amex.
