Fitness updates on key Brighton stars Bissouma, Lamptey & more ahead of Crystal Palace


Fitness updates on key Brighton stars Bissouma, Lamptey & more ahead of Crystal Palace

 

Brighton & Hove Albion boss Graham Potter has, on Thursday afternoon, provided a fitness update on his squad.

Seagulls soaring

Potter and co. are set to return to action early next week.

After continuing their fine start to the campaign courtesy of a 2-0 downing of Swansea City in the EFL Cup last night, the Seagulls will make the trip to Selhurst Park, to take on rivals Crystal Palace.

Monday’s clash will mark a return to Premier League matters, with Brighton currently sitting in the dizzying heights of 4th-place, just a point adrift of heavyweights Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea at the division’s summit.

This comes with Graham Potter’s men having racked up 12 points, courtesy of four wins from five thus far.

Bissouma a doubt/Webster ruled out

Brighton’s hopes of keeping alive their fine early-season form in South London, though, could yet be derailed by a series of concerns on the personnel front.

Speaking in a pre-match press conference on Thursday, Graham Potter was inevitably asked for the latest on the wellbeing of his squad.

And the Seagulls boss went on to provide updates on a whole host of his stars.

Key midfielder Yves Bissouma, as things stand, remains a doubt to feature versus Palace, after picking up a knee problem versus Leicester City last weekend. The Malian, though, could yet recover in time:

Moving onto full-back Tariq Lamptey, who marked his first-team season bow versus Swansea on Wednesday, Potter hinted at a cautionary approach, with the former Chelsea man still some way off full fitness:

Elsewhere, it was also confirmed that both Adam Webster and Enock Mwepu have been ruled out of the Selhurst clash, but Pascal Groß will be involved, at least from the bench.
