According to Sussex Live, Yves Bissouma, Adam Webster, Enock Mwepu, Steven Alzate, and Danny Welbeck are all either out or doubts for the match against Arsenal this weekend.

Bissouma has a knee injury suffered against Leicester City, which ruled him out against Crystal Palace, though Graham Potter is still hopeful he can make a return on Saturday.

“Bissouma is making decent progress, this game [Crystal Palace] came a little bit soon for him,” Potter said. “We are hopeful he can be available against Arsenal but we will have to see at the back end of the week.”

As for Welbeck, the issue is a hamstring problem, but Potter says they need to assess it over the next couple of days before making a decision.

“Danny [Welbeck] felt his hamstring a little bit and again we will see over the next 48 hours how that is,” Potter explained.

Webster will certainly miss the clash with a hamstring problem of his own, whilst Mwepu has a groin issue. Alzate is another one Brighton still need to assess, but the early prognosis is that it’s quite a bad injury, so he’s unlikely to recover in just a few days.

Summing things up, it sounds like Webster, Mwepu, and Alzate will all be out. Welbeck and Bissouma are both doubts, but Bissouma is the most likely of the five to be available this weekend.
