Brighton injury woes

Before facing off with AEK Athens, Brighton have a number of injury concerns to deal with.

The South Coast outfit came from behind to beat Nottingham Forest with 10 men at the weekend, but they lost two key players in the process:

“We play on Thursday in the Europa League but I think we lost both for sure for this game,” Roberto De Zerbi said on Ansu Fati and Tariq Lamptey.

Brighton are also set to be without Pervis Estupinan, Danny Welbeck, Solly March, Julio Enciso, Adam Webster and James Milner for the meeting, while Kaoru Mitoma is also touch and go for Thursday.
