Brighton boss Graham Potter admits he's short of attacking options ahead of facing Chelsea tonight.

Potter has given an update on strikers Aaron Connolly and Percy Tau ahead of their trip to Stamford Bridge.

Connolly has not featured in any of Albion's last five games due to a rib injury prior to the international break and a foot injury he picked up on international duty with Republic of Ireland.

Tau has not featured in the two games since after the international break due to being into quarantine after being away with South Africa.

Potter said: “Just the long term ones (injuries) that aren't available.

“Aaron Connolly has had a good week of training, so he is available.

“Percy Tau is out of quarantine but hasn't trained much so we will see how he is."
