1. Premier League

In the 2020-21 Premier League, Brighton & Hove Albion were almost relegated to the EFL Championship. They finished 16th in the standing table (41 aggregated points), right below Southampton with two points in difference and above Burnley who obtained 39 points. The club won a total of nine matches in 38 games, including four home wins and five away wins, 14 tied matches, and were defeated in 15 games. 

This result was not a surprise as since Brighton participated in the Premier League in the 2017-18 season, their rankings have been all below 15th (15th in 2017-18, 17th in 2018-19, 15th in 2019-20, and 16th in 2020-21).

2. FA Cup

Brighton F.C. was eliminated before the quarter-finals of the 2020-21 FA Cup. This South Coast club participated in three matches, starting from the third round, in a match against Newport County. In the official competing minutes, two teams ended up equal, and Brighton was the eventual winner by a 4-3 penalty win. 

They joined the fourth round and were paired with Blackpool. Brighton & Hove Albion beat their opponent by 2-1. Thought the chance was open to Brighton in the FA Cup, but they were kicked out of the competition due to the 0-1 loss to Leicester City in the fifth round. 

3. EFL Cup

Similar to the FA Cup, Brighton also joined three rounds of the EFL Cup this season, from the second round to the fourth round, but their wins and loss were more significant. On 17 September 2020, Brighton started their journey in the EFL Cup in a match against Portsmouth. They successfully finished the game with a 4-0 win. A week later, Brighton & Hove Albion entered the third round and once again won over Preston North End by 2-0. However, in the fourth round, Brighton met Manchester United and lost 0-3 to this English top-notch club.

History 

Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club, or simply known as Brighton, is an English professional football club based in the city of Brighton and Hove, hence the name. The club was founded on 24 June 1901 and started playing in the Football League 19 years later. 

They are also known for their nicknames, as The Seagulls, or Albion, which are featured on the club’s logo. As a seaside club, their crest and home color represent the specific blue color of the sea and the white. Despite currently playing in the top-flight Premier League, Brighton is at the top of underdog clubs.

The club played at the Goldstone Ground in Hove as their first and longest home ground for 95 years until the board of directors decided to sell it. After that, they played at Withdean Stadium, and currently playing in the third stadium called Falmer Stadium with a 31,800 capacity.
