Brighton are sweating on the extent of an injury to top scorer Joao Pedro in last night’s 4-0 hammering at Luton Town.
The 18-goal Brazilian forward went off after 71 minutes at Kenilworth Road.
Head coach Roberto De Zerbi said: “You can explain the game from Joao Pedro’s injury, because his injury was caused by frustration. We have to be able to accept defeat and to lose the game with dignity.
“It’s too early to say, but we hope it’s not a bad injury because we need him.”
James Milner left Kenilworth Road with his left leg in a brace. The leg was heavily strapped around the thigh and knee during treatment by medical staff shortly before he was forced off 20 minutes into the match.
Brighton host arch-rivals Crystal Palace at the Amex Stadium on Saturday following their third league defeat in 13 games.
