Albion begin their second Premier League season away to Watford tomorrow.

The Seagulls finished 15th in their first campaign back in the top flight of English football for 34 years last season.


Watford came 14th, with a point more than Brighton, after Javi Gracia replaced Marco Silva as manager in Janaury.

What time does Watford v Brighton kick off?


It's a 3pm kick-off on a Saturday to start the season - but Albion fans will have to wait until September 1 for their next 3pm Saturday slot, when Fulham visit the Amex.

Is the game on TV?


No. But Albion's following two games against Manchester United and Liverpool will both be televised.

What's the team news?


Brighton made ten new signings this summer but left-back Bernardo is likely to be the only one who starts at Vicarage Road on Saturday.


Club record signing Alireza Jahanbakhsh, Yves Bissouma, Leon Balogun and David Button will all likely be on the bench.

Who is the referee?


Jonathan Moss is the man in the middle. His assistants will be Eddie Smart and Andy Halliday, with David Coote the fourth official.

What are the betting odds?


Watford are the favourites for the three points at 13/10 on SkyBet, while an Albion win is 9/4 and a draw is priced at 21/10.


Hornets duo Troy Deeney and Andre Gray are 6/1 to score the first goal, with Adalberto Penaranda 15/2.


Seagulls forward Glenn Murray is 7/2 to score first, with Florin Andone 5/1, Tomer Hemed is 11/2 and Pascal Gross 13/2.


To score at any time in the game, Murray is 11/8 and Gray and Deeney are both 9/4. Albion defenders Lewis Dunk and Shane Duffy are both priced at 14/1 to score anytime.
