Matheus Cunha was a doubt for the trip to Old Trafford, but played 77 minutes in the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United and should be ready once more for the visit of the Seagulls. He delivered a good performance against the Red Devils, despite not being fully fit, having missed a couple of Gary O'Neil's first training sessions. He will have now had a full week of training under the new boss and there is a hope he can make an impact.
No injury problems have been reported, which means O'Neil will have a clean bill of health to choose from, and will be able to choose a side he feels his capable of beating Brighton, following their positive display against Manchester United. Matheus Cunha and Pablo Sarabia could lead the line again whilst Mario Lemina performed well in the midfield on Monday.
As for Brighton, SussexWorld report that two injured ‘stars’ trained ahead of Wolves, but that there was one notable absentee. Tariq Lamptey and Adam Webster both missed the 4-1 win over Luton Town, with Webster out with a ‘minor’ issue. Midfielder Lamptey is recovering from a long-term knee injury that kept him out for most of the second-half of last year.
Brighton posted photos of their training session in the build-up to the match and Adam Lallana was not pictured. The 35-year-old wasn’t in the squad against Luton, and is believed to be dealing with a thigh injury. Webster and Lallana are both pushing to be involved, but Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi did not want to take a risk.
Midfielder Jakub Moder is ruled out, and it is insure when he will return. He last played a senior competitive game for the club in April 2022, but his representatives denied last month that a third operation was needed to rectify the issue. He was described as 'getting closer' to returning and had been working with his own personal training entourage to get him up to fitness.
