Mooy’s pressing for a Brighton return

Brighton have midfielder Aaron Mooy fit and in contention to return in Saturday’s Premier League clash at home to Aston Villa.

The Australia international missed the defeat at Everton last time out with a knee issue but is in line to feature at the AMEX Stadium, although Dan Burn (broken collarbone) and Jose Izquierdo (knee) are long-term absentees.

Seagulls boss Graham Potter is confident Alireza Jahanbakhsh, Shane Duffy and Adam Webster will all recover from slight knocks while Solly March could be involved after playing 45 minutes for the Under-23s as he continues to step up his return following groin surgery.

Pepe Reina is likely to be handed his Aston Villa debut for their game at the Amex.

The former Liverpool goalkeeper has joined on loan from AC Milan until the end of the season after Tom Heaton’s long-term knee injury.

Wesley is out with his own season-ending knee problem while John McGinn (fractured ankle), Keinan Davis (hamstring) and Jonathan Kodjia (illness) are sidelined.

Brighton provisional squad: Ryan, Dunk, Webster, Montoya, Bernardo, Bissouma, Trossard, Propper, Gross, Maupay, Alzate, Button, Duffy, Bong, Stephens, Jahanbakhsh, Connolly, March, Mooy.

Aston Villa provisional squad: Reina, Nyland, Kalinic, Guilbert, Engels, Chester, Konsa, Mings, Taylor, Elmohamady, Luiz, Nakamba, Drinkwater, Targett, Grealish, Trezeguet, El Ghazi, Hourihane, Jota, Lansbury, Vassilev.
