Full extent of Brighton injury list revealed after Aston Villa and expected return dates

Brighton and Hove Albion suffered a heavy 6-1 loss at Aston Villa as injuries took their toll on Roberto De Zerbi’s team

Ollie Watkins fired a superb hat-trick for Unai Emery’s men with goals also for Jacob Ramsey, Douglas Luiz and an own goal from Brighton’s Pervis Estupinan.
