Brighton and Hove Albion finished their Premier League campaign on top form this season as Graham Potter’s team recorded a ninth placed finish – their highest ever recorded in the top flight.

The Seagulls treated their fans to some thrilling performances – especially on the road – but they signed off at the Amex Stadium in style with a 4-0 thrashing of Manchester United followed by an impressive 3-1 comeback victory against a decent West Ham team.

Albion had struggled at times on their own patch but fans kept turning out at the Amex in force and for the most part were in fine voice throughout the season.

Skipper Lewis Dunk, head coach Potter and chairman Tony Bloom have all praised the Brighton supporters this season as they head off for a well-earned summer break.

“It’s been amazing,” said Dunk. “It has been a long old season with a lot of ups and downs but to finish it in the way we did has been unbelievable,” said the skipper.
