Andoni Iraola has rightfully earned plenty of plaudits during his first season in charge of Bournemouth and is still hopeful his side can finish the season with a new club record for points in a single Premier League campaign. That was achieved under Eddie Howe in the 2016/17 season when the Cherries finished with 46 points. Currently on 45 points with four games remaining, a win against Brighton would be a huge step to achieving that target. 

The Seagulls have struggled since the turn of the year and now find themselves playing catch-up in the race to secure European football for next season. A loss of form and injuries to key players has had a huge impact in recent months but there is still plenty of talent in the side and manager Roberto de Zerbi will be determined to address this slide down the table. 

Here's how the team's will line up: 

Iraola makes three changes from Bournemouth's 1-0 win at Wolves, while Brighton make seven changes after their 4-0 defeat to Man City. 

Bournemouth XI: Travers, Smith, Senesi, Kelly, Cook, Scott, Semenyo, Kluivert, Ouattara, Solanke, Unal.

Subs: Neto, McKenna, Christie, Hill, Aarons, Kinsey, Sadi, Dacosta Gonzalez.

Brighton XI: Verbruggen, Barco, Dunk, Offiah, Igor Julio, Gilmour, Gross, Buonanotte, Adingra, Pedro, O'Mahony.

Subs: Steele, Webster, Enciso, Lallana, Moder, Welbeck, Baleba, Fati, Veltman.

Can the Cherries pick up a vital three points against their south coast rivals at the Vitality Stadium? Or will the Seagulls find their form and pick up the win? We’ll show you how you can watch today's Bournemouth vs Brighton live stream from anywhere down below.
