Brighton & Hove Albion 0 – 5 AFC Bournemouth Football Highlights
Goal : 33′ 0 – 1 Dan Gosling
Eddie Howe’s men pass their way to the opening goal. Lovely football in midfield sees Lerma interchange with Gosling and King. The striker then spots Gosling in the middle of the box – unmarked – and he has time to pick his spot. Duffy was limping seconds before the goal, that may have affected his ability to close down the goalscorer.
Cue the “stop, he’s already dead” memes. Bournemouth are running riot here against a team who just can’t deal with their pace on the counter.
Fraser is involved again. He slips one into Wilson, who turns his man far too easily and calmly slides one into the far corner.
It was coming. Brooks breaks the line again and Bournemouth have a four on one. He could shoot himself or pass to Stanislas. He goes for the pass and the substitute finds the bottom corner. They are making Brighton look like a pub team here.

Man Of The Match :
- Brighton are looking to win consecutive competitive matches against Bournemouth for the first time since January 2008, following their 3-1 win in the FA Cup third round in January.
- Bournemouth are unbeaten in their last nine league games against Brighton, winning five and drawing four.
- Brighton have lost only one of their last 14 home matches in all competitions against Bournemouth (W7 D6), losing 0-2 in April 2015 in the Championship.
- Brighton have lost three of their last five Premier League home games (W1 D1), as many as they had in their previous 17 at the Amex Stadium (W9 D5 L3).
- None of Bournemouth’s last 19 away league games have ended level (W5 L14), with the winning side netting at least two goals each time in those games.
- Bournemouth won six of their opening 10 Premier League games this season (D2 L2), taking them up to sixth in the table at the end of October. Since then, they’ve won just five of their 23 league games (D3 L15) with only relegated Fulham (17) and Huddersfield (18) losing more Premier League games than the Cherries since November.
- Only Fulham (44) have conceded more away Premier League goals this season than Bournemouth (37).
- Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson has scored in both of his league appearances against Brighton at the Amex stadium, netting two goals.
- Brighton striker Glenn Murray has failed to score in his last eight Premier League home games – he last had a longer goalless run at home in the English leagues (excluding play-offs) between October 2011-April 2012 with Crystal Palace (14 games).
- Bournemouth’s Ryan Fraser has provided more assists away from home than any other player in the Premier League this season (6), with the Scotsman setting up four of Bournemouth’s last eight goals on the road.
