Roberto De Zerbi will assess his walking wounded as Brighton will hope to maintain their push for Europe against Manchester United on Thursday.
Albion, who thrashed Wolves 6-0 in the Premier League at the Amex Stadium last Saturday, will be keen to have another crack at Erik ten Hag’s United following their FA Cup semi-final penalty shoot-out loss to the Red Devils at Wembley Stadium two weeks ago.
The Seagulls will however be without a number of their first team regulars as injuries continue to limit De Zerbi’s options. The head coach was however impressed with his fringe players during the emphatic victory against Wolves – with striker Deniz Undav and midfielder Billy Gilmour particularly impressive.
De Zerbi said: “Gilmour, I think, was the best player on the pitch and I must admit possibly in the past I made some mistakes with him and with Undav because I didn’t give them many possibilities to play. But for me it’s difficult. To play without Mac Allister, Mitoma, Solly March, Moises Caicedo, it’s difficult.”
