​Brighton trio in contention for Chelsea clash

Brighton could be ready to welcome three players into the squad as they prepare to take on Chelsea on Tuesday night.

The two sides will battle for Premier League points, as Chelsea chase a Champions League spot and Brighton hope to secure safety from relegation.

Manager Graham Potter says there are no new injury concerns for his side, and some players may be back from absences.

Aaron Connolly, Adam Webster and Dan Burn could all feature in the game, while Percy Tau has an outside chance as well.

Potter told reporters, per the club website: "It's just the long term ones that are unavailable.

"Aaron Connolly has had a good week of training so he's available. Percy Tau is out of quarantine but hasn't had too much training, so we will see how he is.

"Adam Webster has had a good few weeks of training and we have managed to get him up to speed. There is a possibility but we will see how he is.

"Same as Dan Burn, they have both had a bit more time from last week and trained well and available for selection."
