Jermain Defoe scored the first goal of his second spell at Bournemouth to clinch a 2-1 win over Brighton in the Premier League on Friday, ending his team's four-match losing run to open the season.

But they avoided matching the relegated 2005-06 Sunderland and 2009-10 Portsmouth, who both lost their first five games of the season, thanks to goals from Andrew Surman and Jermain Defoe at the Vitality Stadium.

Eddie Howe says he has been shocked by Bournemouth's dismal start.

"Although, we don't want to take our foot off the gas".

Chris Hughton's charges eventually broke the deadlock in the 55th minute when Pascal Grob's cross was headed home by Solly March at the far post.

"When you work so closely with a group every day you see the trends and you see the attitude, the willingness to do well - that's all there. we just haven't delivered on game day". "I've no doubt there are still many good years in him". "I hope that's the kick-start and the confidence boost he needs because he can be a difference-maker for us".

Her death was confirmed to The New York Times by her wife, Judith Kasen-Windsor, whom she married in 2016 . The couple had been partners for 44 years and had married in Canada in 2007.

"They're good on the ball, they had very good movement but I thought we matched them".

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

"They have a lot of quality in the team and I've no doubt it will only be a short period of time before they start turning those results around, because of the experience they've had in the last few seasons".

Eddie Howes' charges enjoyed most of the possession in the first half, but they were unable to make it count as the likes of Jermaine Defoe and Joshua King fired blanks. Predict the score for this match and the rest of this round's Premier League fixtures in our Predictor game.

After four games, Bournemouth are still looking for their first win of the season and sit 19th in the table.
