Slaven Bilic's newly promoted team will be Albion's final test before their Premier League opener against Frank Lampard's Chelsea on September 14 at the Amex Stadium.

West Brom kick off their league campaign at home to Leicester City on Sunday, 13th September.

The Baggies are looking to improve their squad following last season's promotion. Bilic is close to sealing a permanent deal for Filip Krovinovic following his successful loan and they have also been linked with a £1m move for Brighton No 2 goalkeeper David Button and Watford striker Troy Deeney.

Last Saturday Graham Potter's Albion played out an encouraging 1-1 friendly draw against Chelsea in front of 2,500 fans at the Amex.

It was a chance for Brighton's new signings Adam Lallana and Joel Veltman to have a run-out, while returning loanee Ben White also featured in the Brighton rearguard.

A late penalty from Pascal Gross cancelled out an early strike from Chelsea's new signing Timo Werner.

Albion also played League One Portsmouth in a friendly on August 22 at the Elite Performance Centre before the match with Chelsea last weekend.

Potter will be without six of his first-team squad for West Brom with Leandro Trossard (Belgium), Joel Veltman (Holland), Aaron Connolly, Shane Duffy, Jayson Molumby (Republic of Ireland) and Viktor Gyokeres (Sweden) all on international duty.

Albion fans can see the West Brom friendly match for free on MyAlbion TV and the live stream is expected to start at 2.45pm. Visit the club website for further details.

Brighton still hope to tweak their squad ahead of the new season. They have been linked with Brentford left back Rico Henry and are also keen to bring in Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster on loan.

Defender Shane Duffy looks certain to complete his loan move to Celtic and left back Bernardo has been linked to Turkish club Istanbul Basaksehir, with West Ham and Newcastle also said to be keen on the Brazilian.
