Brighton transfer rumours: Seagulls among favourites to land West Brom star, West Ham could land £40m striker
Brighton & Hove Albion have an excellent opportunity to take another leap towards safety this weekend, when they'll look to pick up three points in a clash against already-relegated Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
As things stand, the Seagulls lie in 16th place, a comfortable seven points clear of the relegation zone, but will be eager to secure their safety as soon as possible to avoid a nervy end to the 2020/21 Premier League campaign.
Speaking ahead of Saturday night's big game, Brighton boss Graham Potter revealed his squad are looking in good shape following their midweek goalless draw with Chelsea, and said: “No (injuries to the squad) everybody came through the game okay. There are a couple of lads we need to be careful in Adam Webster and Dan Burn, who have only just returned to action.
“We will also see how Danny recovers from the game. To have both [and Adam Webster] back – we’ve been a little bit light, while those two have been unavailable. We’ve managed with the three we’ve had with Joel [Veltman], Dunky and Ben [White].
“But if you get any injuries or suspensions, you’re down to just the two. It’s good to have them back, we have to be careful with them in terms of making sure they have recovered, but on and off the pitch they’re important for us because of their personalities and their characters.
