Lewis Dunk will return for Albion at Villa Park – so how does Graham Potter play it at the back?

The skipper has missed three matches through suspension, in which time the Seagulls have taken just two points but have looked pretty solid in defence.

They have conceded three goals in that time, one of them from a contentious penalty at Tottenham.

Very few, if any, fans will contest Potter’s assertion that Dunk should come straight back in.

At the same time, his return poses some interesting selection decisions.

The likely return of Solly March at left wing-back adds further intrigue.

If Dan Burn is not required for that role, he becomes a contender for a more central berth along with Adam Webster, Joel Veltman and potentially Ben White (if he is not used in midfield).

PICTURE SPECIAL: Webster wants same again - up to a point

Albion summariser Warren Aspinall told BBC Sussex listeners this week he would play Burn on the left of a three because he likes his partnership with March.

Webster has a very strong case to start but Veltman has done little wrong.

Or could White do a man-to-man job on Jack Grealish?

No one has ever accused this current Albion squad of being short of centre-backs.

Whatever happens, someone is going to consider himself a bit unlucky.

But which option would you go for – and what will Potter’s thinking be – at Villa?
