Albion will make five trips to the capital next season.

Following the release of the Premier League fixtures yesterday morning, below is a look at Brighton & Hove Albion’s five trips to the capital this coming season.

The first trip to London comes as early as 28th September when Albion face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Next up is match against Arsenal at the Emirates on 3rd December, as Graham Potter’s side begin a busy period of festive fixtures. The corresponding fixture between the two sides back in May ended 1-1, as Glenn Murray’s penalty earned the Seagulls a share of the spoils.

Another trip to Selhurst Park beckons on 14th December, and Albion fans will be hoping for more of the same after a memorable 2-1 win in south London back in March, courtesy of two brilliant strikes from Murray and Anthony Knockaert.

The club then make their second trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on 26th December, following a narrow 1-0 defeat to Spurs at the same venue back in April.

Albion’s final trip to London comes as early as 1st February with a match against West Ham United at the London Stadium.

Few fans will forget the first trip to the ground after a memorable 3-0 win in east London, thanks to Murray’s brace and Jose Izquierdo’s stunning strike.

The Seagulls looked like recording another impressive victory at the same ground last season after going 2-0 in front through goals from Dale Stephens and Shane Duffy, but the Hammers hit back to claim a point through Marko Arnautovic’s brace.
