After a goalless first half at the Vitality Stadium, the visitors took a surprise lead 10 minutes after the break when Solly March headed in from Pascal Gross's cross.

Chris Hughton's side were ahead for 12 minutes before Bournemouth's Jordon Ibe laid on a pass for Andrew Surman to finish from the middle of the box into the far left corner of the Brighton goal.

Ibe turned provider again little more than five minutes later, when he found Defoe, who span in the area and struck the ball low past goalkeeper Mathew Ryan to give Howe's side their first points of the season. — Reuters
