Bournemouth comeback to earn a point against Brighton in 2018's first fixture

Ibe closes down Everton's Wayne Rooney during Bournemouth's 2-1 win at the Vitality Stadium

"Steve Cook has produced a great header, and it's a great example of a centre half delivering what you want". After Brighton failed to clear the ball, a tiny flick from Wilson somehow ended up in the back of the net to earn both sides a point.

Callum Wilson grabbed a point for Bournemouth with around 10 minutes to go, displaying razor-sharp reactions after a scramble in the goalmouth to poke home the equalizer for his second goal in three games.

It's not going to go down as his finest goal for the Eddie Howe's side, but it did leave Bournemouth looking marginally less foolish of the two sides in this farcical few seconds. They have only one win in nine and sit just three points above the drop zone, with Arsenal and Chelsea among their next three opponents.

Anthony Knockaert scored the first Premier League goal of the year with five minutes gone, from an acute angle after Jose Izquierdo flashed the ball across goal.

It felt somewhat fitting that in the early kick off on New Year's Day, the crucial goal involved a whole party of Premier League footballers who looked like they were still feeling the effects of the previous night's celebrations.

New Zealand songstress Lorde has been called a bigot by an American rabbi for cancelling her concert in Tel Aviv. Comedy TV writer Graham Lineham applauded the move to cancel the concert.

43' - SAVE! Murray and Gross combine brilliantly - not for the first time - and the former picks out Izquierdo eight yards from goal with a lovely pass but he's denied by a superb Begovic save, with his legs, and the ball then bounces out off Izquierdo.

Bournemouth will go for the double over Brighton, having already beaten the Gulls in the reverse fixture by a 2-1 score at Vitality Stadium in September.

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

A beautifully worked goal for Brighton saw them pull ahead again just after the interval, with Gross once again putting Izquierdo through. and he squared it to for Murray to finish. Clinical from the Seagulls!

79' - GOAL! Brighton 2-2 Bournemouth (Wilson).
