Chris Hughton will have Lewis Dunk available for Brighton & Hove Albion’s FA Cup tie with Arsenal after the defender served his one-match ban against Ipswich Town in midweek.
Jake Forster-Caskey (hip) and Craig Mackail-Smith (ankle) are also in contention after missing the 3-2 win over Ipswich but Greg Halford remains sidelined with a calf problem.
Long-term absentees Kazenga LuaLua (knee) and Dale Stephens (ankle) are still unavailable as they continue their rehabilitation.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed that World Cup winner Mesut Ozil is likely to feature from the start the Amex, having made just one substitute appearance since damaging knee ligaments in October.
However, the Gunners will be without long-term absentees Jack Wilshere and Mikel Arteta (both ankle), Abou Diaby (calf), Mathieu Debuchy (shoulder), Serge Gnabry (knee) and Danny Welbeck (thigh), while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is also a doubt with a groin issue.
Hector Bellerin will face a late fitness test on his ankle although Wenger is optimistic the right-back will be available.
