BRIGHTON HANDED HUGE INJURY BOOST
Brighton and Hove Albion have received a big news on the injury front following the news that striker Danny Welbeck is nearing a comeback from the knee injury that has made him miss the opening weeks of this year. The injury update on Danny Welbeck was given by the Brighton and Hove Albion manager Graham Potter ahead of the league encounter with North London giants Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.
Graham Potter gave the update on the state of his team during the pre-match presser on Friday ahead of the Spurs game scheduled for Sunday night. According to him, Danny Welbeck is closing in on a comeback from the knee injury picked up during the West Ham United game at the end of last month. Danny Welbeck has not played for Brighton and Hove Albion since that knee injury against the Hammers as the two teams shared a four-goal thriller. Hosts West Ham United failed to win at home to the Seagulls on December 27.
Graham Potter said that Danny Welbeck could return from injury in the next weekafter making good progress from the knee injury. Danny Welbeck became a Brighton and Hove Albion player in October after the Seagulls picked him up on a free transfer. He spent last season at Watford but the Englishman struggled to feature for the Hornets due to injuries. Brighton and Hove Albion boss Graham Potter also gave an update on the injury to star fullback Tariq Lamptey. The Ex-Chelsea player has been out of action with the hamstring problem that he sustained during the away game at Fulhamin mid-December. Graham Potter told reporters that Tariq Lamptey is still two or three weeks away from returning to full fitness. Danny Welbeck is ahead of him in the fitness department but the two players won't feature for the Seagulls against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday night.
