Duffy Back For Brighton

Duffy Back For Brighton

Brighton defender Shane Duffy is available following suspension for the visit of Arsenal but Lewis Dunk misses out.

Duffy will replace his usual defensive partner after serving a three-game ban, with Dunk now suspended after his red card in the defeat at Bournemouth.

Leon Balogun deputised for Duffy during his suspension and should now keep his starting spot with Dunk absent.
Brighton will be without wingers Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Jose Izquierdo due to respective hamstring and knee problems.

The Seagulls have a tough run of games ahead of them with Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United to come within their next five fixtures but boss Chris Hughton feels they will be able to pick up some points.

“We’ve got a tough run of games but these fixtures haven’t just popped up,” he told The Argus. “We knew we had them at the start of the season and we know that we will have had them come the end of the season.

We have to play these at some stage, and for what on paper is a more comfortable period you are going to get your more difficult periods, but we always go into every game thinking that we are going to get something.”
