It’s the moment most Brighton fans have been dreading, the first game of the post Potter era.

Graham Potter guided the Seagulls to their best ever finish last season, finishing 9th and it was only a matter of time before one of the ‘Big Six’ came in for the former Swansea man, and it was Chelsea who were successful after the sacking of Thomas Tuchel in midweek.

Brighton do head down the south coast on Saturday in superb form however, winning four and drawing one of their six games so far, including a 5-2 demolition of Leicester last time out. This was the first time the Seagulls had scored five goals in a Premier League match in their history, with goals from Moises Caicedo, Alexis Mac Allister (2), Leandro Trossard and own goal from Luke Thomas giving Graham Potter’s side a famous victory at the Amex.

Even more impressive is that Brighton did so after conceding inside the first minute to Kelechi Iheancho.

Bournemouth’s luck has turned around since Scott Parker’s departure, with caretaker manager Gary O’Neil picking up four points from his two Premier League games in charge, including a 3-2 win over fellow promoted side Nottingham Forest last time out.

The Cherries found themselves 2-0 at HT after goals from Cheikhou Kouyate and Brennan Johnson looked like it would succumb Bournemouth to their fourth defeat of the season, but this wouldn’t be the case. Philip Billing pulled a goal back in the 51st minute with a fantastic long range effort, before Dominic Solanke and Jaidon Anthony both scored their first league goals of the season to top off an incredible comeback for the away side.

Bournemouth vs Brighton match stats

Alexis Mac Allister has been in fine form for Brighton this season and is just one goal away from matching his Premier League goals tally from last season, after scoring four times in his six appearances so far this term. The Argentine midfielder was cruelly denied a hat-trick last time out against Leicester, with his rocket being ruled out by VAR for an offside in the build up before scoring a penalty and an incredible free-kick to help his side to a 5-2 win over the Foxes.

Mac Allister has hit the target four times in his last two Premier League games, with 73% of his total shots this campaign coming from outside the box.

The Seagulls are just one of two sides alongside Wolves not to be behind at HT in the Premier League this season, a record that came under threat in the opening minute against Leicester, after Kelechi Iheanacho’s early strike, but Brighton came back into it to go into the break level at 2-2.
