Ibe's crucial cameo could kick-start Bournemouth career, says manager Howe

Has Howe blown his chance at being Wenger’s successor at Arsenal

The Cherries then went ahead after 73 minutes when Ibe turned provider once again to play in Defoe, who fired home from six-yards out.

Defoe's first goal of the campaign sunk Brighton, who had led through Solly March's header.

Eddie Howe's side has had a hard start to their campaign, having already faced Arsenal and Manchester City, although, the young manager has condemned his team's recent performances.

- Jermain Defoe scored his first goal for Bournemouth since May 2001 (5977 days ago), when he was playing alongside Eddie Howe for the Cherries away at Reading.

The Eagles sit rock bottom of the division with no points and no goals scored and will become the first side in top flight history to lose their first five games without scoring should the Saints win to nil.

All in all, we are getting a pretty good price on Bournemouth to win this game and as a result I am going suggest that betting on the outright result as the best option.

However, the hosts rallied round and were level in the 67th minute through Andrew Surman before Jermain Defoe struck the victor six minutes later. "We see it every day in training, he can beat people in really tight areas as he did that for the two goals". It's taken longer than we hoped but it has come now, and hopefully that can set us off. And it's all about us creating more openings for him.

Hornets' boss Siva is rightly gaining many plaudits for the job he is doing at Vicarage Road and you can back him to take all three points this weekend at 15/2 with Bet Victor.

The Seagulls next fixture sees them return to Dean Court on Tuesday night to face Bournemouth in the League Cup, with their next Premier League game at home to Newcastle the following Sunday. He's not that type of player, to stay down.
