Claim the three points and Bournemouth can draw a line under their tepid start to the campaign and work towards their goal of a fourth consecutive Premier League season.

This was a first ever top-flight meeting between the two seaside clubs, who were playing each other in the second tier only two years ago.

Eddie Howe's side has had a hard start to their campaign, having already faced Arsenal and Manchester City, although, the young manager has condemned his team's recent performances.

"[Brighton] played deep, they were compact and we knew it would be hard".

"We know that we'll be judged on these games".

After the game, Defoe told Sky Sports: "I thought when we went a goal down, we really dug in - the tempo changed completely".

Eddie Howe's men have scored just once in losing four Premier League games.

With Albion looking to pick up as many points as possible against so-called smaller teams, September could prove to be a crucial month in their season.

But they were sent to a 2-1 defeat as Andrew Surman and Jermain Defoe struck.

The performance of Ibe, however, was one to savour as he turned in the best showing of his timid Bournemouth career to date - providing his first two assists in a Cherries shirt.

Brighton got their first Premier League victory last week against West Brom.

Brighton are now in 14 position in the Premier League table after claiming four points so far this season and although the campaign is only four matches old, Seagulls' boss Chris Hughton as admitted that he consistently checks on the standings.
