Defoe earns Bournemouth comeback win over Brighton

Jermain Defoe

Jermain Defoe scored a well-taken winner as Bournemouth came from behind to claim their first Premier League win of the season against Brighton.

Defoe turned in the box and drilled home a clinical finish – his first goal since joining the Cherries in the summer – after being put through by substitute Jordon Ibe.

Winger Ibe has struggled since arriving at Bournemouth from Liverpool for £15m in 2016, but he also made the first goal with a clever backheel to Andrew Surman, who coolly stroked in.
