Brighton boss Graham Potter is hopeful Tariq Lamptey will be fit to face former club Chelsea after suffering an injury setback ahead of the 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace.

Seagulls defender Lamptey was a surprise omission from Albion's starting XI for Friday evening's clash with the Eagles due to a slight groin issue.

"Tariq was not ready to start," said Potter. “He had a tight abductor so he was not ready for 90 minutes.

“He is fine he just missed a bit of training. Obviously with Tariq and what he has been through we went on the side of caution.

“He had a couple of days of training and with some time (against Palace) it would have done him some good.

“If there is no further problem, he will be OK for Chelsea."
