Nigeria international Leon Balogun is poised to make his first Premier League start at Anfield on Saturday following the news that Lewis Dunk will be side-lined for several weeks.
Balogun entered the fray after 20 minutes on Sunday when vice-captain Dunk hurt his ankle in a challenge with Romelu Lukaku which he failed to shake off. It didn’t look good for the big centre-back who watched the second half on crutches with his right ankle in a protective cast. However, subsequent tests confirm the damage is not as serious as initially thought. "At the moment it doesn’t look long, so that’s a positive," said manager Chris Hughton. "It’s certainly not as bad as it might have been. How long we don’t know but we are probably talking weeks." Balogun will play alongside Shane Duffy while the Brighton backline will also retain the services of Spaniard Martin Montoya at right-back as Bruno Saltor continues his recovery from a minor hamstring strain.
