Jermain Defoe has scored a well- winner while Bournemouth came from behind to claim his first victory of the season of the Premier League against Brighton.
Defoe turned into the box and drilled home a clinic end – his first goal since arriving to the cherries in the summer – after being by substitute Jordon Ibe.
Winger Ibe has struggled since arriving in Bournemouth from Liverpool for £ 15 million in 2016, but he also made the first goal with a clever background against Andrew Surman who hit .
After a mournful first half, the game came to life during the second period, while Solly March went to the opening visitors Brighton by Pascal Gross.
Minute earlier, defender Dale Stephens nodded with an effort The crossbar after Surman erased Shane Duffy's header and followed Davy Propper on the line.
Relive the victory of Bournemouth on Brighton

I am finally contributing
Until the introduction of Ibe on 65 minutes in place of Ryan Fraser, the cherries were largely poor, (19459007)
Charlie Daniels, who scored a Stunner against Manchester City in the last game of the league, moved forward and immediately hit the match with Mathew Ryan and forward Defoe are brought closer when he turned and hit the edge of the box.
But England's Under-21 international Ibe, who provided no goals or attended 25 league matches last season, set two goals Friday and almost got on the sheet
The pressure was mounted on Bournemouth leader Eddie Howe after starting the Premier League campaign with four consecutive losses, but victory moves them three points clear of the Crystal Palace, which hosts Southampton on Saturday.
Howe said of Ibe's contribution: "He made a huge difference, the ability to beat people and be positive with the ball." Both aides were excellent and I I'm really thrilled for him. "
Gross looks pretty for Brighton
It was a meeting of two teams from the south coast who were living a fairy tale in the top of England football
In 2008-2009, Bournemouth was hit with a deduction of 17 points after financial problems and they finished the season at two places above the zone of descent in the Ligue Two.
Brighton's long climb to the Premier League came after finishing 23rd out of 24 teams in the former three division – now League Two – in 1997-98. The previous season, they finished in the same position and on the same points as Hereford, but remained in the Football League by virtue of having scored three more goals than the Bulls.
Chris Hughton's side proved difficult to collapse early in the morning against Bournemouth and managed to take the initiative through the cross of Gross to his midfield March .
German wholesaler, who creates (98) in the Bundesliga for Ingolstadt last season, will be key if the Seagulls are to remain in the division, having participated in all the goals of this team – two goals and two assists . Andrew Surman

Give credit to the players and managers of Bournemouth
Eddie Howe would have been very disappointed with what he saw in the first half. He let them out in the second half and decided to make a change. And Jordon Ibe made the difference – with two audiences.
You can feel the relief around this stage and on the faces of the players with the celebrations – they will feel that they can launch now. This shows a good union that they have gone through this.
To be fair with Eddie Howe, he never turns away from the way they play football. The reason why it did not work very well, it is that, individually, they did not work.
But winning and scoring goals creates confidence. There will be smiles on faces when training now and waiting for their next games.
I thought Brighton was sailing for 65 minutes. Chris Hughton will be disappointed.
"A trustworthy lift" – what they said
The chief of Bournemouth, Eddie Howe, talks to Match of the Day: emotions, relief is probably the most important. We had a series of intense matches and today was really important.
"They played in depth, they were compact and we knew it would be difficult.
Brighton Chief Chris Hughton, speaking at Match of the Day: "They are incredibly disappointed. They have a lot of quality and move the ball well, but we managed it well for a lot of game. That was two mediocre goals that we recognized that we never had to concede before.
" I thought it was a very good time for us just before scoring. Until then, they had a lot of possession, but I felt we were still in the game. "
