Brighton held at home by Bournemouth after silly Callum Wilson goal

Brighton held at home by Bournemouth after silly Callum Wilson goal

Bournemouth have scored a late goal to either win or rescue a point three games in a row now, which says something for the character of Eddie Howe's side. Steve Cook equalized for Bournemouth with a looping header in the 33rd minute before Glenn Murray put the Seagulls ahead again at the Amex three minutes after the interval. The Cherries had the better of the play for most of the day against Sam Allardyce's Toffees, and Ryan Fraser opened the scoring on 33 minutes with an acrobatic finish from a Josh King cross.

However, a goalless draw looked inevitable from an early stage of proceedings, with the result leaving Newcastle a point clear of the drop zone in 16th position.

THERE are scrappy goals and then there are goals like the one Brighton's Australian keeper Mat Ryan conceded against Bournemouth that had social media up in arms.

That trio were all involved as Brighton restored their lead three minutes into the second half.

Nearly out of nothing Izquierdo sprinted from inside his own half but carried it too close to Begovic and the chance was gone.

Brighton and Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton hailed Jose Izquierdo despite a costly miss from the winger during Saturday's entertaining 2-2 draw with Bournemouth.

In the first meeting this season between Brighton and Bournemouth, the Cherries won 2-1 at Vitality Stadium.

But, with home advantage, Bournemouth will head into the contest as narrow favourites for the win, and it should be an intriguing clash igniting another bumper day of top notch football in England, as the Premier League welcomes in 2018.

The Premier League match between Brighton and Bournemouth will be broadcast on NBCSN.

- Wilson has scored 16 Premier League goals without providing an assist - the most a player has scored in the competition without setting up a team-mate, overtaking Branko Strupar (15 goals, 0 assists).
