Albion face a balancing act with Steven Alzate as their season resumes.

Boss Graham Potter reckons the midfielder might struggle with the hectic schedule of the Premier League restart.

Alzate was due for a minor groin operation when the season was halted.

But that was put on hold when he showed coronavirus symptoms and has remained so with medical services facing more pressing matters.

He is ready to play against Arsenal next Saturday but will need rest between games.

Potter said: “He is looking okay. We are having to manage him a little bit - just his load and manage him through this bit.

“He is probably not going to be able to play Saturday, Wednesday, Saturday, Wednesday or whatever it is.

"But we have to just take that into consideration and make sure he is able to play the time that he can and feel good but he is looking okay.”

Albion follow the Arsenal match by going to Leicester three days later but then have a seven-day gap between fixtures.

Although exact dates for the last six rounds are yet to confirmed, they have a total of four midweek fixtures in the run-in.

Their only clear week – or close to it – between games next month appears to come ahead of the season-ending trip to Burnley.

Albion’s run-in could yet be affected by the FA Cup.

They are due to play Newcastle on the new semi-final weekend.

But Toon will be in the last four if they beat Manchester City in the quarter-finals.
