Yves Bissouma has been told he upped his game against Aston Villa.

The midfielder was one of the pluses on a challenging afternoon for the Seagulls as they went down to two late goals at Villa Park.

Albion are now building towards a return to the Amex and a visit from Leeds to start a period of three games in eight days.

Bissouma had a spell out of the side recently but looked back to the form he was showing early in the season at times against Villa.

Asked whether he was one of the positives of the afternoon, Albion head coach Graham Potter told The Argus: “Yes, he was. I thought he did really well.

“Better positions, better with the ball. Got his recoveries in so, yes, happy with him.”

Potter could see Enock Mwepu return to his midfield options against Leeds after missing the Villa game with a muscle injury.


But he is unlikely to make sweeping changes, having been pleased with much of what he saw at Villa.
