Alexis Mac Allister will have to wait for his Albion debut.

But there is no shortage of talking points in the Seagulls side which faces Sheffield United.

Glenn Murray and Neal Maupay both start in what looks like a 5-3-2 – or 3-5-2 - set-up.

There is an array of height at the back in a three of Adam Webster, Shane Duffy and Lewis Dunk with Ezequiel Schelotto and Dan Burn at wing-backs.

Yves Bissouma comes into the side for his first league action since the 1-1 draw against Chelsea on New Year’s Day.

Steven Alzate is among the absentees.

Sheffield United name the side which beat Bournemouth last time out.
