What could be Brighton’s remedy, as De Zerbi  confirmed a second injury setback to “exceptional” star alongside March…

Roberto De Zerbi is facing another setback as Brighton and Hove Albion have suffered a second injury blow to one of their key players, in addition to Solly March. The injury update was provided by De Zerbi after Brighton’s recent 2-1 Premier League defeat to Manchester City.

In the current injury list, Brighton has Pervis Estupinan, Tariq Lamptey, Julio Enciso, and Jakub Moder sidelined with their respective injuries. During the Manchester City game, Solly March was stretchered off the field due to a knee injury that left him in severe pain and unable to walk. Unfortunately, March was not the only player forced to leave the field prematurely.

Danny Welbeck also had to be substituted after just 16 minutes due to a muscle injury suffered during the same game. Welbeck has started seven out of the first nine Premier League fixtures this season, underscoring his importance to the squad. However, De Zerbi’s injury update suggests that the 32-year-old may face an extended period on the sidelines.

In his post-match interview following the defeat to Manchester City, De Zerbi confirmed that Danny Welbeck will at least miss the upcoming Ajax match. He expressed frustration over losing two important players and mentioned the challenge of playing in European competition without key squad members.

Danny Welbeck’s current weekly earnings with Brighton amount to £55,000, making his absence a significant loss for the team. Welbeck has made 99 appearances for Brighton, contributing 20 goals and ten assists. He is considered an “important” first-team player, and his versatility, having played in various positions, is an asset that De Zerbi will have to do without if Welbeck is sidelined.
