Albion boss Chris Hughton has challenged record buy Jose Izquierdo to prove he is worth a regular place in the side.

The £13.5 million Columbian left-winger from Brugge could make his first Amex start against Southampton today (1.30).

Izquierdo scored his first goal in English football in the 3-0 win at West Ham.

He was preferred to Solly March at the London Stadium and, prior to that, made his debut in place of Anthony Knockaert in the defeat at Arsenal before a late cameo at home to Everton.

Hughton said: "His contribution hasn't been as big as others for obvious reasons.

"He came later, he hadn't had much of a pre-season and, of course, playing in the Belgian League is completely different to playing here at this level.

"We are sure there is more to come from him, more involvement in the game.

He's had two starts, both away from home in different type of games, and the challenge for him now is to turn that into home performances and be a regular starter."
