YVES BISSOUMA has been told he has his part to play in the coming weeks.

And that could go for other Albion players who have been out of the spotlight.

Bissouma went on as substitute late in the 2-0 home defeat to Leicester.

He will now hope for action at Anfield, a venue where he had a character-building first Premier League start last season.

Bissouma missed pre-season and the opening of the current campaign after summer surgery on a persistent shoulder issue.

He was perhaps a surprise introduction in place of stand-in skipper Dale Stephens as Albion sought an equaliser against the Foxes.

Albion head coach Graham Potter said: “He is going to contribute, I’m sure of that.

“We haven’t really got a player like him. He’s a bit different to everybody else.

“We’ve just got to find the right circumstances for him.

“In fairness, Dale and Davy (Propper) and the guys have been doing quite well.”

Bissouma has had a stop-start Albion career since arriving from Lille in the summer of 2018.

He made a largely promising first Prem start at Anfield last season but his loss of possession led to Liverpool’s winning goal.

Potter said: “He has had to be patient. He missed all pre-season because of his injury.

“We have had to build him up in terms of time and training and the understanding of what he can do and how he can help the team.

“But he has got quality, he has got talent and I’m sure he is going to help the team.”

Albion face a hectic schedule between now and early January.

Potter said: “We have got a lot of games coming up and it’s important that we have that feeling that everybody has an opportunity.

“They will certainly get it over the next few weeks and they have got to be ready to take it.”
