West Brom vs Brighton

Brighton’s next clash will see them face off with West Brom on Saturday afternoon.

Both sides head into the meeting at the Hawthorns still firmly entrenched in this season’s relegation scrap.

As of writing, Brighton are sat 16th in the Premier League, just four points clear of the bottom three.

And though they did lose their last outing vs Crystal Palace despite dominating, the Seagulls have actually been in decent form of late.

West Brom, on the other hand, look to be staring a swift return to the Championship in the face.

The Baggies are 19th in the league and 11 points adrift of 17th-place, Newcastle.

Sam Allardyce’s side have also won just two league games all season and are in possession of the worst defence in the PL at present.

Graham Potter on Tariq Lamptey

Ahead of Saturday’s meeting, Graham Potter has provided an update on Tariq Lamptey.

The full-back was one of Brighton’s brightest sparks earlier in the season, notching three assists and one goal in 11 outings.

However, Lamptey has since missed Brighton’s last 12 league ties due to injury.

When speaking about the former Chelsea youth recently, though, Potter stated that he has a chance of being involved on Saturday:

“Yes, he did [train at the weekend]. He started the very first stages of joining the group so depends on how this week goes.

“He has got a chance to maybe be involved [versus West Brom] so we will see.”
