Brighton vs Chelsea - Brighton forward Izquierdo set for late fitness test

Brighton will hand a late fitness test to Jose Izquierdo before selecting their team to host Chelsea on Sunday.

The forward has been struggling with a knee injury and remains a doubt but could yet be passed fit.

Glenn Murray is expected to be available following a shoulder injury, but Shane Duffy will miss out through suspension.

Striker Alvaro Morata is a doubt with a knee injury for Chelsea.

Kepa Arrizabalaga, Antonio Rudiger, Eden Hazard, Cesar Azpilicueta and N’Golo Kante are poised to return to the starting line-up after being rested for Thursday’s Europa League tie with Hungary’s Vidi.

Mateo Kovacic, Gary Cahill and Victor Moses missed the trip to Budapest through injury and are expected to be absent again.
