Jermain Defoe helps Bournemouth secure there first win

Jermain Defoe

Bournemouth claimed first Premier League win of the season by coming from behind to beat Brighton, 2 – 1.
Goals from Andrew Surman in the 67th minute and Jemain Defoe in the 73rd minute secured victory for them.

Winger Ibe has struggled since arriving at Bournemouth from Liverpool for £15m in 2016 but he turned in a star performance from the bench, setting up both goals as Bournemouth got off the mark in the Premier League this season with a 2-1 come-from-behind win over Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Cherries were staring a fifth-straight league defeat in the face when Solly March headed Brighton into the lead on 55 minutes at the Vitality Stadium.

But substitute Jordon Ibe changed the game as the winger set up Andrew Surman and Jermain Defoe in the space of six minutes to clinch a morale-boosting victory which eased the pressure on manager Eddie Howe.

Bournemouth remain second from bottom despite claiming their first three points, but move to within a point of the Seagulls, who remain in 14th position.

Man of the Match award was picked up by Jordon Ibe
