Brighton dealt potential triple blow ahead of Leicester clash/Marc Cucurella’s message following debut

Graham Potter

Brighton see off Brentford

Brighton faced off with Brentford in a Premier League clash on Saturday afternoon.

The Seagulls started the campaign well, picking up wins over Burnley, Watford, and then Cardiff in the League Cup.

However, before the international break, the south coast outfit would lose 2-0 to Everton.

But, thanks to a late strike from Leandro Trossard, Brighton were back to winning ways on Saturday, earning a 1-0 victory over the Bees.

Potter’s concering Brighton update

Following the tie, Graham Potter has provided some concerning personnel updates.

Adam Webster was taken off during the opening 45 minutes on Saturday, with Potter having confirmed that the defender has picked up a hamstring injury:

“Adam Webster had a hamstring injury so we will see how it settles down in the next 24-48 hours.”

The Brighton boss then confirmed that Pascal Gross and Enock Mwepu are both currently in self isolation:

“Pascal Gross is self-isolating, the same as Enock Mwepu.”

The Seagulls therefore look set for an anxious wait to see if any of this trio will be available for their next outing, versus Leicester City on Sunday, September 19th.

Elsewhere, Marc Cucurella was afforded his Brighton debut on Saturday, and posted the following post-match message on social media:

Very happy with my first three Premier League points at Brighton! With this team effort there will be much more to come! Looking forward on working hard day by day and introducing myself as quick as possible into the Team. Thanks for your support!
