Brighton boss Potter confirms Leandro Trossard is available for selection vs Aston Villa

Aston Villa vs Brighton

Brighton’s first game back after the international break sees them travel to Aston Villa on Saturday.

The Seagulls have been experiencing a bit of a slump in form recently, but their last outing saw them smash Tottenham 3-0.

After an emphatic victory against the north London powerhouse, Brighton should be full of confidence as they prepare to take on Villa.

Like Brighton, Aston Villa have not had a great start to the new season, but their last clash saw them beat a struggling Norwich side 5-1.

Graham Potter on Leandro Trossard & Shane Duffy

Prior to facing off with Villa, Graham Potter held his pre-match press conference on October 17th.

During the press conference, Potter gave a positive update on Brighton new boy Leandro Trossard.

Trossard has missed Brighton’s last four PL outings, after picking up a groin problem whilst with Belgium in September.

However, Potter would confirm that the winger is available for selection vs Villa, as is Shane Duffy:

“Trossard has been training this week. We’re delighted Duffy came through the games with Ireland too – both are back for selection.

“It’s just Jose Izquierdo and Bernardo who’ll be missing – everyone else is back and fit.”
