ALBION manager Graham Potter will have to manage his squad over the coming weeks as the physio room increases occupancy.

There are as many as six new injury concerns after the Southampton match following a busy week for Albion.

Lewis Dunk was a surprise absentee against the Saints as he withdrew with a knee injury he picked up during the West Ham match.

Dunk joined Adam Webster, Adam Lallana, Jeremy Sarmiento, Danny Welbeck and Steven Alzate on the sidelines.

Potter told media after the Southampton match: “Dunky’s knee, I would say he has a 99.9 per cent chance no for spurs, but we are still assessing it to be fair but it is not overly positive.

“Adam Webster will be a couple of weeks with his calf, similar to Adam Lallana.

“Jeremy [Sarmiento] is a serious one, so that is going to take some more time, which is a blow for him and for us.

“He has not had surgery yet, I am pretty sure it is planned, the recovery time will be three months.

“Joel [Veltman] just got a smash on the nose and blood came out so I don’t think he will be a problem for the weekend, but we just put another midfielder in there to push.”

Potter expects Veltman, not to miss the game against Tottenham on Sunday.

Leandro Trossard's injury to his elbow is not as bad as first feared according to club doctors, but he will be monitored over the coming days.
