Brighton's established No 1 and you would expect it would take a serious loss of form or injury to lose his spot. The 27-year-old Australian impressed in his first season and continued his fine form throughout the 2018-19 campaign. Contracted until 2022. (Getty)
Joined last season for £4m on a three-year contract and made just four league appearances under Chris Hughton. He featured in three FA Cup matches and one League Cup. Has his work cut-out to displace Ryan. (Getty)
The goalkeeper arrived in June 2018, signing a three-year deal. The shot-stopper will hope to challenge Ryan and Button. (Getty)
Bong was a mainstay in the side last season. Signed a new one-year extension in May, keeping him on the south coast until June 2020. Likely to compete with Bernardo. (Getty)
Established with Dunk. Scored six goals from 49 appearances last season. Contracted until 2023 and would expect to be a key figure once again. (Getty)
Linked with a £40m departure but states he wants to stay at his boyhood club and succeed Bruno as club captain this season. Will hop add to his one England cap.(Getty)
The 30-year-old Nigerian central defender made just five Premier League appearances last season. Opportunities could well be limited - arrival of Matt Clarke won't help him. (Getty)
Ended last season loan at Chievo. The 30-year-old has a year remaining on his contract. The full-back, nicknamed the Greyhound, returned from Chievo with a knee injury (Getty)
The 28-year-old Spanish right back signed for £7m last August and is under contract until 2022. With Bruno retired, Montoya, a former Barcelona and Valencia player, will hope to establish himself.(Getty)
The Brazilian made 22 appearances under Hughton last season. He was signed for £9m from RB Leipzig and has three years on his contract. Fans will hope to see his best form. (Getty)
Burn made three FA Cup appearances last campaign but none in the Premier League and spent most of last season on loan at Wigan. Burn is determined to prove himself in the Premier League (Getty)
The 31-year-old Austrian ended last season with a successful loan spell at German club Fortuna Dusseldorf. A great crosser of the ball but unlikely to oust Bernardo (Getty)
Potter's first signing and the 22-year-old centre back arrived for £3.5m from Portsmouth. Potter likes his defenders to play out from the back and Clarke ticks that box. (Getty)
Signed for £2.5m in January on a three-and-a-half year contract and loaned back to Viitorul Constana. Capped five times for Romania already. (Getty)
The 30-year-old has made 180 appearances for Albion. Used as defensive midfielder last season and received some criticism from the fans. Contracted until May 2021. (Getty)
Contracted until June 2020. Was out of the starting XI for long spells under Hughton. If Potter's tactics are to attack, the defensive midfield role could prove extremely demanding. (getty)
Has not yet made the central midfield spot his own since arriving from Lille OSC last summer for a fee of £15.2 million. He has now tasted the Premier League and a big season awaits (Getty)
Seems to have been around for a while now but he's only 27 and could be coming into his prime years. Will compete with Trossard, March, Izquierdo and Jahanbakhsh for the wide spots.(Getty)
Struggled with injuries last campaign and will hope for a good run of form and fitness. Ambitions to play at the very highest level and this will be a key season for the Hailsham lad. (Getty)
Rumours of a move to Ajax persist, who view Propper as a replacement for Frenkie de Jong, who moved to Barcelona. Will the Dutch international be at the Amex when the Seagulls kick-off at Watford? (Getty)
Had ankle and hamstring injuries but has reported back for pre-season refreshedSeven goals and eight assists in his first campaign and figures like that will be most welcome. Contracted until 2022. (Getty)
The Dutch winger has a year remaining following his arrival in the summer of 2017. Spent last season on loan at Sparta Rotterdam where he suffered a double leg fracture. (Getty)
The 20-year-old attacking midfielder has impressed during loan spells at Argentinos Juniors and Boca Juniors. British work permit issues could prevent him from being an option (Getty)
The 24-year-old £15m summer signing is expected to be a key part of Potters plan to play a more attacking style of football next term. Last season's captain at Genk (Getty)
Had loan spells at Spanish team Extremadura and then Emelec. On contract at Albion until 2022 but permit issues could scupper plans to see him in a Brighton shirt anytime soon. (Getty)
If we don't see the best out of the Dutch striker this season, then perhaps we never will. 45 goals in 127 appearances for PSV and three in 32 for Brighton. Over to you Potter. (Getty)
Scored five times last season and the 26-year-old Romanian showed glimpses of potential. A fine individual goal against Palace at the Amex certainly boosted his popularity. (Getty)
Another talented but under-performing attacker signed for decent money, who has banged in goals everywhere else. Bit of a theme developing here...Once again, over to you Potter. (Getty)
25 goals in the Premier in the last two seasons. Has one year left on his deal. How his style will fit Potter's tactics is one of the more intriguing sub plots.(Getty)
Izquierdo's last campaign was blighted by a knee injury and he was limited to just 15 appearances. The Colombian will need to prove his fitness. (Getty)
Scored seven goals in 29 games on loan at Queens Park Rangers last season. Surprised many Albion fans when he signed a new one-year contract at the Amex last month.(Getty)
The 25-year-old will spend the 2019/2020 season out on loan due to work permit obstacles. 13 goals and 13 assists with Belgian side Union SG last seasonand won Player of the Season. (Getty)
The 6ft Slovenian scored 15 goals in 36 games and helped fire Maribor to the Slovenian title. He was included in Potter's pre-season raining camp in Austria. (Getty)
