Ahead of their visit to Stamford Bridge on Saturday, Brighton have been handed a major injury blow.

Brighton boss Graham Potter is set to be without Shane Duffy for the game against Chelsea on Saturday after the defender picked up an injury on Wednesday in their Carabao Cup loss to Aston Villa.

“Shane [Duffy] is going for a scan to look at last night’s injury – it’s a calf injury that looks like it will be a number of weeks,” Potter confirmed in his pre-match press conference.

Potter is also set to be without Solly March, Leandro Trossard and Bernardo for their visit to Stamford Bridge.

“Jahanbakhsh may be back for the weekend, March is more likely for Tottenham,” Potter added. “Murray is fine and trained today, as is Maupay.

“Bernardo had a knock a few weeks ago that needs to settle down.

“Trossard is also still making really good progress.”
