Starting 11

How well do you know your starting 11s?

Ready to kick off?

Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club, better known simply as Brighton, can trace their roots to their foundation in 1901. Also known as the "Seagulls" or "Albion", Brighton and Hove Albion glory days are firmly in the past, with their previous stint in English football's top division lasting from 1979 to 1983 in the old First Division saw it culminate in contending an FA Cup Final against Manchester United. Since then however, Brighton continually fell through the English footballing divisions, ending in the fourth tier of English football and with severe financial difficulties, before rising again from near oblivion in the year 2001, moving into their current permanent home ground, the Falmer Stadium. 34 years of hurt and exile from England's top footballing division ended in 2017, when they made a triumphant return to the Premier League and have aimed to stay there ever since.

The Seagulls maintain an intense rivalry with south London side Crystal Palace. The Eagles and Seagulls have clashed various times in their history, most notably during their stint during the Championship, and now with both clubs currently operating as mid-tier Premier League sides, now vie for dominance in England's top footballing division, taking their rivalry to its greatest height.
