Key dates for your 2017/18 diary

ALBION'S fixtures for the 2017/18 Premier League campaign - the club's eighth consecutive season in the top flight - have been published. Here are some key dates for your diary.

Saturday, August 12 - AFC Bournemouth (H)

An opening-day fixture at The Hawthorns awaits Baggies fans after three months away. And AFC Bournemouth will be the visitors. The same result as last season would suit Albion quite nicely - Craig Dawson and Gareth McAuley were on target in a 2-1 win.

Saturday, August 19 - Burnley (A)

The first away-day for the Albion faithful is a trip to Turf Moor. You won't need your bucket and spade in Lancashire, but a repeat of May's thrilling 2-2 draw will be entertainment enough. Fans desperate for the seaside sun can expect a trip to Brighton on Saturday, September 9.

Boxing Day - Everton (H)

A home clash on December 26 for the first time since 2014, the Toffees come to town on Boxing Day. The last time the Baggies beat Everton at The Hawthorns was in 2012 - the same year that Albion last won on Boxing Day. Same again please, lads!

Saturday, November 25 - Tottenham Hotspur (A)

Wembley! The Baggies will face Spurs at the national stadium in late November. It will be just the third time Albion have played under the arch - so get it in your diary.

New Year's Day - West Ham United (A)

After a dramatic first trip to the London Stadium in February, Albion make the trip to the capital on New Year's Day. The Baggies notched six goals against the Hammers last season - but we're not sure how many Jonny Evans is claiming.

Saturday, May 5 - Tottenham Hotspur (H)

Albion's Hawthorns curtain-call for the 2017/18 season comes against Spurs. Just as it was for Chelsea last time out, could the final home game of the year be a Premier League title decider? Albion have dented Tottenham's hopes of a PL crown before.

Sunday, May 13 - Crystal Palace (A)

The Baggies will finish 2017/18 where they started 2016/17 - at Selhurst Park. Salomon Rondon's header last August gave Tony Pulis' men the perfect start to what would be a great season. But this time Albion will be heading to Palace looking to finish in style.

Saturday, May 19 - Emirates FA Cup Final (N)

Maybe, just maybe...
