Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi says Solly March and Adam Webster are unavailable to face Arsenal due to injury.
The Albion star has scored seven goals and bagged seven assists this season but he won’t be available to face the Gunners on Sunday after coming off with a hamstring problem during the 5-1 loss to Everton on Monday.
The Italian did not say if the winger would be out for the season but he did say centre-back Webster, who came off at half time against the Toffees, is also unavailable.
However, striker Evan Ferguson, who made his return to action against Sean Dyche’s men after missing several games due to an ankle problem, is fit.
The 43-year-old said on Friday: “We are not in such good condition but we will decide on the squad tomorrow. Solly March, Adam Webster won’t be available for Sunday, but Evan Ferguson is.”
When asked if March was out for the season, he replied: “I don’t know, difficult question, more difficult to answer. I hope he [March] can play the last two games. I want to understand if Joel Veltman can play. If he can’t, I have to play another right-back.”
Aside from March and Webster, Brighton are currently without Veltman (hamstring), Jakub Moder (ACL), Adam Lallana (hamstring), Tariq Lamptey (knee), and Jeremy Sarmiento (metatarsal).
After facing the Gunners this weekend, the Albion travel to Newcastle United on Thursday, before hosting lowly Southampton at the Amex on Sunday.
