Bournemouth boss Howe admits Ibe made the difference for Brighton win

Eddie Howe's Bournemouth can start moving in the right direction on Friday

"When you start a season, you want those first points on the board and that first win as quickly as you can".

His smart backheel was perfectly weighted for the onrushing Andrew Surman to equalise, and six minutes after that he found Jermain Defoe for the victor.

Hughton said: "He's very keen".

After a goal-less first half, the game came to life in the second half when Solly March headed Brighton in front from Pascal Gross's cross in the 55th minute. Capitalising on a misplaced pass from Rosenior on 67 minutes, the 21-year old's deft backheel put Surman in on goal to put the equaliser past Albion 'keeper Maty Ryan.

Eddie Howe's side have struggled defensively, allowing eight goals in their first four games, including three last week against Arsenal. Furthermore, we are getting a good price on the over 2.5 goals and considering the state of these two defensive units, I am expecting a high scoring game.

"Jermain is an unbelievable professional in every detail from what he eats to how he recovers".




Chris Hughton admits he can not resist studying the Premier League table, even though the season is just four games old.

"(I am) incredibly disappointed.

"He injected something completely different into the game and took the game away from Brighton", said Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville afterwards. We never looked like conceding before then.

"He's one of the best finishers I've ever seen", said Howe.

But they avoided matching the relegated 2005-06 Sunderland and 2009-10 Portsmouth, who both lost their first five games of the season, thanks to goals from Andrew Surman and Jermain Defoe at the Vitality Stadium.

Following that, Bournemouth travel to Everton in the league next weekend while 14th-placed Brighton host Newcastle United.
