Brighton vs Watford Team News
Brighton will again be without the services of Jose Izquierdo through injury, but Shane Duffy
and Dan Burn have both made strong progress in their recoveries, with the latter potentially available to start out this weekend.
Potter has no other concerns heading into the competition , and there aren’t expected to be too many changes from the side that started at the London Stadium.
Glenn Murray scored his first Premier League goal of the season against the Hammers and will keep his spot,
while Pascal Gross and Aaron Mooy should feature in attack.
As for Watford, Tom Cleverley – out of contention since October through injury – has rejoined the squad and will make the bench this weekend, but the match is predicted to return timely for Ismaila Sarr.
The attacker has missed his team’s last two Premier League matches with a hamstring problem,
and Pearson has admitted that the Senegal international remains a doubt for this fixture.
Defensive trio Daryl Janmaat, Craig Dawson and Kiko Femenia also are still out,
while midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah remains a doubt thanks to a back injury.
Should Chalobah fail to recover in time then Danny Welbeck could earn a start in attack,

Will Hughes, Andre Gray and Ignacio Pussetto also are options for change,
but it seems unlikely that Pearson will make wholesale changes to a side that has largely performed well since his arrival.
