Albion upped the game time for multiple players last night – seven got an hour of action.
Graham Potter again started the friendly against Estoril with three defenders and full-backs.
The Seagulls restored their returning from vacation internationals.
It’s too early to read much about who played where.
But the game felt a little more real than the previous week’s training session against Royale Union St-Gilloise.
Robert Sanchez was in goal for 45 minutes, Kjell Scherpen played the second half.
A back three of Joel Veltman, Lewis Dunk and Marc Cucurella was replaced on the hour by Jan Paul van Hecke, Shane Duffy and Matt Clarke from the right.
That meant a role change for van Hecke, who had been the focus of the three against USG a week earlier.
Solly March also gave way on the hour.
He had played at right-back and Julio Enciso took over that cross.
Leandro Trossard played the first half at left flank and was replaced by Kaoru Mitoma at half-time.
Neither Mitoma nor Enciso seemed to have much defensive responsibility, although that may have been due to the course of the game.
Deep midfield pairing Moises Caicedo and Alexis Mac Allister made way for Adam Lallana and Steven Alzate at the break.
Pascal Gross was in front of them and he got an hour before Jeremy Sarmiento took his place.
Further ahead, Danny Welbeck and Neal Maupay each played an hour.
Evan Ferguson, who didn’t play against USG, and Deniz Undav continued in the last half hour.
Tariq Lamptey, Adam Webster and Enock Mwepu were all named on the team sheet but didn’t advance.
It was reported that their absence was pre-emptive without any problems as Albion carefully managed their players after a hard week’s work at the Cidade Do Futebol next to the old National Stadium in Lisbon.
