Brighton & Hove Albion winger Liam Rosenior is unhappy with his side switching off to let Bournemouth come from behind and claim a 2-1 win on Friday night.

John Roder: "Brighton beat West Bromwich Albion last Saturday to move oto four points, while Bournemouth have gone down to four defeats out of four".

Andrew Surman's maiden Premier League goal and Jermain Defoe's first for Bournemouth in nearly two decades saw off Brighton on Friday.

The two sides meet again at the Vitality Stadium on Tuesday in the third round of the EFL Cup. "I hope that's the kick-start, the confidence boost that he needs because he could be a difference-maker for us".

"When you work so closely with a group every day you see the trends and you see the attitude, the willingness to do well - that's all there. we just haven't delivered on game day". "It is all about creating more openings for him".

"Historically we've always been very very good with the ball, very confident, and we haven't quite seen that".

Bournemouth seemed like a ideal place for him to begin fulfilling his potential, but his first season on the south coast was disappointing.

Chris Hughton's side pushed on after the break, and came close to scoring three times in the first ten minutes before finding the breakthrough.

Ibe did not contribute a single goal or assist in 25 Premier League appearances, but he started the new season with a vow to improve.

After four games, Bournemouth are still looking for their first win of the season and sit 19th in the table.
