Brighton boss Potter eases Lallana, White injury concerns

Brighton boss Graham Potter has eased injury concerns over Adam Lallana and Ben White after defeat at home to Chelsea.

Both players made their Premier League debuts for Albion, but went off injured with Potter hopeful their knocks are not serious.

“It's too early to give a definitive answer on either of them," said Potter.

“Adam was enjoying the game and his performance. It's early days, it might just have been cramp."

On the 3-1 reverse, the manager stated: “Unfortunately if you concede three goals you make it difficult. The manner of the first goal is a mistake, and came after we probably had our best attack of the half.

“We had to recover and responded really well to get the equaliser. Their second goal was a bit of a wonder strike, but we could still do a little bit better ourselves and the third one is a little bit harsh but we've still got to do better.

“It was a good performance overall, but a disappointing result."
