Albion travel to the Emirates Stadium for their final away game of the season on Sunday afternoon.

Brighton & Hove Albion travel to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal on Sunday afternoon, after the under-23s host Chelsea on Friday evening in their final league game of the campaign.

FRIDAY 3RD MAY: ALBION U23 V CHELSEA U23, KICK-OFF 7PM. 

Simon Rusk’s men welcome Chelsea to the American Express Elite Football Performance Centre on Friday evening in their final Premier League 2 Division 1 game of the season.

The young Seagulls fell to a narrow 1-0 defeat to Everton at Goodison Park last time out, with Josh Bowler’s goal proving the difference between the two sides on Merseyside.

It meant that the hosts claimed the league title, but Albion now have the chance to seal second place and round off a successful first top-flight campaign – victory over the Blues would lift them above second-placed Arsenal.

Season-ticket holders can gain free entry to Friday’s game, but must book their tickets in advance either online or in person at the ticket office. Otherwise, tickets are priced at £5 for adults and £2 for over-65s and under-16s.

SUNDAY 5TH MAY: ARSENAL V ALBION, KICK-OFF 4.30PM.

Chris Hughton side’s contest their final away game of the season when they head to north London to face Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.

Last time out Pascal Gross’s header earned Albion a point at home to Newcastle United – Ayoze Perez had fired the visiting side into an early lead, but Hughton’s men rallied well after the break to claim a share of the spoils, and it could prove to be a decisive point come the end of the campaign.

The Seagulls played out a 1-1 draw when Unai Emery's men visited the Amex Stadium on Boxing Day - Jurgen Locadia’s strike cancelled out Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang’s early opener.

Albion’s allocation for this game has now sold out.
