The Premier League confirmed the fixtures for the 2020/21 season and Amazon Prime will broadcast 22 of these including two Albion matches.

Similar to last season, Prime will feature every Premier League team in two different matches and they will broadcast every single game across two fixture rounds, featuring 20 matches in total.

These fixtures will take place across the early December midweek round between December 15 and 17, and the late December midweek round between Boxing Day and New Year, from December 28 to 30.

Brighton's first match on the streaming service will be their trip to newly promoted Fulham, which is currently scheduled for a 7.45pm kick-off on December 15.

It will see Albion come up against their former player Anthony Knockaert who enjoyed a successful season on loan in West London and made the move permanent in a £10m deal last month.

Brighton's home match against Arsenal on December 28 will also be screened live. Last season Graham Potter's men did the double over the FA Cup winners with Albion's Neal Maupay scoring late winners on both occassions.

Sky Sports, with just over 100 matches and BT Sport, with a little over 50 fixtures, continue to dominate the coverage but Amazon Prime Video will also show Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur as they travel to Anfield to take on the Champions, Liverpool.

This season’s Champions League clubs will also face difficult away tests on Prime Video, as Manchester United travel to Bramall Lane to take on Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United and Chelsea travel to Molineux to face Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Their late December round over the bank holiday will also feature Manchester United versus Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford and Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton facing Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City at Goodison Park.
