Leandro Trossard back for Brighton but Aaron Connolly still struggling with injury
Leandro Trossard is anticipated to return for the suit against Leicester on Saturday of Brighton after picking up an injury on international duty with Belgium.
Brighton boss Graham Potter is convinced that the 24-year-old will likely be accessible, although the winger sat out the Qualifiers against Cyprus and Russia.
“Leandro Trossard rolled his arm while he was off – it was precautionary that he was left out,” Potter said. “He’s trained with us and he is nice for the weekend”
Meanwhile, the Potter is hoping Aaron Connolly will not face on the sidelines.
The 19-year-old forward was made to pull out of responsibility with the Republic of Ireland squad because of a groin injury.
Connolly had impressed for the Seagulls until he picked up the difficulty through the 3-1 defeat at Manchester United.
Potter, however, remains optimistic that the talent will shortly be back in action, possibly in time for the visit to Liverpool on November 30.
“Aaron Connolly will miss the match this weekend with exactly the same groin problem in the Manchester United match,” he further added. “Hopefully he’ll return for next weekend”
Potter reported no additional injury concerns following the worldwide break, but captain Lewis Dunk will miss the Leicester match through suspension after a caution gathered.
“Shane Duffy along with Davy Propper will also be back fine. (Steven) Alzate got back last night, however he’s okay also,” the Brighton boss went on.
“Bernardo was back in training this week, however, the weekend is too soon for him.”
Potter expects protector Adam Webster might be in contention for the first time since suffering an injury from Norwich in the beginning of November.
“it is a great deal earlier than expected,” Potter explained. “He’s trained now (Thursday) and we will observe just how he is tomorrow.
“We now have great options in that region of the area.”
Brighton saw their pursuit for a third consecutive Premier League win ending against United before the break.
Potter knows his side will face another stern test of their ability from a Leicester facet that is high-flying and free-scoring.
“Leicester are in good form recently and Jamie Vardy has been very clinical recently,” the Seagulls manager said.
“But he’d be the first to state that it is as much about the group supporting him that are creating chances for him”
