Roberto De Zerbi will assess his players ahead of Burnley’s visit – after making three line-up changes at the Amex last night.

The Seagulls boss brought back Joao Pedro, Pascal Gross and Kaoru Mitoma to face Brentford.

Adam Lallana was not involved in the 20 while Joel Veltman and Evan Ferguson started on the bench.

De Zerbi said he is making careful use of his resources.

He added: “Different players, different quality. Joao Pedro is improving, is becoming very important for this team and everyone knows the quality of Mitoma.

“Pascal Gross is another big, big player for us but they don’t play every week three games in a row and so I have to manage my best.”

Lewis Dunk and Mahmoud Dahoud have now completed suspensions.
