Brighton & Hove Albion injury, suspension list ahead of their first game back

Sports Mole rounds up Brighton & Hove Albion's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their first match back after lockdown, set to be a meeting with Arsenal.

Brighton & Hove Albion will return to action this month still looking for their first Premier League victory in 2020.

Although the Seagulls remain outside of the relegation zone by two points, they have not recorded a win in the top flight since their triumph over Bournemouth on December 28.

Nevertheless, having witnessed his team earn four draws from their last five outings, Graham Potter will be relatively optimistic about the club retaining its top-flight status.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Brighton's injury and suspension news ahead of their next contest, likely to be against Arsenal on June 20.

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Groin
Possible return date: June 20 (vs. Arsenal)

Until he suffered coronavirus symptoms soon after the suspension of the Premier League, Brighton had wanted Steven Alzate to undergo a groin operation. However, despite that now being put off until the end of the season, the versatile Colombian should be available for the meeting with the Gunners.

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: June 20 (vs. Arsenal)

Despite having undergone surgery on an ankle injury in March, Aaron Connolly should be ready to feature for the Seagulls during the run-in. However, it would not be a surprise if the Republic of Ireland international was eased back into action.


Brighton have no players suspended for this match.
