Albion's head coach, Roberto De Zerbi, is facing concerns over injuries ahead of their upcoming Europa League Group B match against Ajax in Amsterdam.
The Seagulls have encountered absences of key players throughout the season, although they remain in a favorable position to progress from the group stages in the continental tournament.
De Zerbi's team has accumulated four points from their initial three group matches. They suffered a 3-2 defeat at home to AEK Athens, drew 2-2 in Marseille, and achieved their first victory with a 2-0 win against Ajax at the Amex Stadium last month.
Another triumph against the Dutch team in Amsterdam on Thursday would significantly bolster their chances of advancing from the group.
Nevertheless, injuries continue to be a concern for Brighton. Here's the comprehensive list of injured players at Albion before their journey to Amsterdam:
Tariq Lamptey – With a muscular issue, he withdrew late from the Everton match. Lamptey performed well in Marseille but hasn't played since then. He is hopeful of regaining fitness for the Ajax game.
Adam Webster – Struggling to regain form this season. He started against Fulham but missed the Everton game. However, he could be considered for the Ajax match and is expected to be fit for Sheffield United.
Solly March – Suffered a knee injury at Man City and is likely to miss the remainder of the season.
Pervis Estupinan – Working on his return to fitness after a muscular injury at Aston Villa. It's expected that the Ajax match will come too soon for his return, and he may come back after the international break against Forest.
Danny Welbeck – Injured his hamstring at Man City and is unlikely to play again this year.
Julio Enciso – The Paraguayan playmaker sustained a knee issue earlier in the season at Wolves and is anticipated to return in December.
Jakub Moder – The Poland international hasn't played for a year. He is training with the first-team group and could potentially target the Nottingham Forest game.
