The Mali international has missed the Seagulls' last two games with a hip injury but is due to return to training today.

Left-back Bernardo is set to return to training tomorrow but is unlikely to be involved on Saturday, while winger Jose Izquierdo is still ruled out.

Brighton boss Chris Hughton said: "Bissouma will train today and hopefully that will put him in the frame.

"Bernardo will train tomorrow but I think Saturday will be too early and Izquierdo is still a no.

"Apart from Bernardo and Izquierdo, everybody else will be available."

Goalkeeper Mathew Ryan and winger Alireza Jahanbakhsh are still at the Asian Cup with Australia and Iran respectively.
