Jose Izquierdo might need to adapt his game as he heads back from a serious knee injury.

That is Graham Potter’s view as he gets a first real look on the training pitch at the Colombia winger he inherited when he took over as head coach.

Izquierdo could enjoy more game time today when Albion under-23s host Liverpool behind closed doors at Lancing (3pm).

He made his long-awaited comeback last Saturday, scoring the winner at West Ham during a half-hour run out off the bench.

Potter’s reply when asked for an assessment on Izquierdo suggested a return to the Premier League itself might be a way off yet.

But the Albion boss likes a lot of what he sees.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? Are Palace a role model for Albion?

He said: “At the moment I would not want to judge him too much as he is at such an early stage of getting back to 90 minutes of football with big pitches and big areas.

“What I have seen is that he is able to take the ball and good in one v one situations. He wants to make an impact on the goal, wants to assist or score or do something. He has that personality and he has that ability.

“The more we see of him in those bigger spaces and bigger areas, the more you can get a better understanding of how he has been impacted by his injury or how he needs to adapt his game.

“It is quite complex when he has been out for so long so we just have to take those steps slowly and help him in the right way."
