Bournemouth Scored Potentially The Worst Goal Of The Season Against Brighton

His shot into the far corner was Brighton's fastest-ever goal in the Premier League but Bournemouth match toe to toe with the previous season's Championship winners and got rewarded for it in the 33rd minute. Shane Duffy started the move with a sweeping, cross-field pass from inside his own half before an exchange of passes between Suttner and Gross that eventually released Izquierdo to cross towards Anthony Knockaert who finished well from a tight angle.

Steve Sidwell remains sidelined due to a long-standing back injury.

Ryan Fraser, who claimed a brace for Bournemouth against Everton, is 11/1 to score the first goal.

Four days later, Bournemouth knocked Brighton out of the third round of the Carabao Cup, thanks to Josh King's extra-time victor.

Adam Smith and Nathan Ake face fitness tests, whilst Jermain Defoe and Junior Stanislas are among a lengthy list of absentees for the Cherries.

A brace from Ryan Fraser earned Bournemouth a 2-1 win over Everton.

Brighton will be looking to avoid relegation.

Bournemouth began the game in a precarious position five points worse off than last New Year's Day.

- In what was Chris Hughton's 150th competitive match in charge of Brighton and Hove Albion, the Seagulls ended a run of three consecutive league defeats against Bournemouth with this draw. Alex Revell scored a hat-trick for the Seagulls that day.

Anthony Knockaert scored the first Premier League goal of 2018 after only five minutes as Brighton drew with Bournemouth 2-2.

Brighton struggled over their last nine games heading into their final game of 2017 against Newcastle.

Bournemouth found themselves in the ascendancy as half-time approached, with Ryan repelling a fierce Daniels free-kick and a low strike from Marc Pugh, although Begovic was called upon once more when Izquierdo nearly crowned the latest crisp Brighton move featuring Murray and Gross.

His frustration will have turned to anger, though, at the way his side made five attempts to clear a 79th minute corner before Wilson poked the ball home, deservedly bring Bournemouth back level in a game littered with chances for both sides.
