The former Bristol City striker, Antione Semenyo, started his first Premier League game for Bournemouth as the leading marksman.
In a typical 4-4-1-1 formation deployed by the head coach, Gary O’Neil, the Ghanaian forward bought by Bournemouth in the January transfer window, led the lines as Hamed Junior Traore from the Ivory Coast played behind him.
Despite failing to find the back of the net, Semenyo, who played the entire 90 minutes, gave a good account of himself.
Ghanaians did not anticipate seeing Antoine Semenyo play against Brighton after the head coach revealed it in the pre-game press conference last Friday, especially after saying the Ghanaian forward needed time to adjust to a new league.
After scoring against Blackburn Rovers to save points for Bristol City in the Championship, he was expected to score for his new club to lift them out of the Premier League relegation zone.
The game could have ended with neither team scoring, but in-form Kaoru Mitoma scored a late winner to give the Cherries a hard-fought victory.
Mitoma scored for the third time in three games, his looping header securing a well-deserved Premier League victory.
As soon as Mitoma scored in the 87th minute, the Amex Stadium erupted. Someone somewhere will be adding Benny Hill theme music over the top for social media giggles. This moment had been building ever since Deniz Undav unleashed a trilogy of misses.
Tariq Lamptey, a Brighton player who plays on the same national team as Antoine Semenyo, is an intriguing player to watch because of the way he flies up and down the right wing. The 22-year-old was in charge of both of the game’s first two chances, one for each team.
Antoine Semenyo needs to work hard to lift his new club out of the relegation zone since they occupy the nineteenth position with 17 points, two more points than the last team.
