Tomer Hemed celebrates scoring Albion's third goal.

Brighton & Hove Albion striker Tomer Hemed was delighted to net his first-ever Premier League goal, and that the side were rewarded for an impressive display in Saturday’s 3-1 win over West Bromwich Albion.

Hemed made it 3-0 to Albion with a header at the near post, and the Israeli international feels there is enough firepower in the squad to compete in the Premier League.

He said, “All of us are happy as it’s the first win for the season, and it was an important moment for me to score my first goal.

“In the last game at Watford, we thought we deserved to win the game, so we can be happy with the performance.

“I think we have good strikers in the squad and we proved we can score goals.

“We scored a lot of goals in the last two seasons and we need to prove we can score goals in the Premier League.

“I scored my first goal today and I will give everything to help the team and continue scoring goals.”

The striker explained how the squad built on the positivity from the performance at Watford a fortnight ago, but insists it’s now vital to focus on a crucial south coast contest against Bournemouth.

“The Watford game gave us a good feeling; we got a lot of confidence from the game and showed we can compete at this level.

“Everyone, from the players, staff and supporters, can be happy with what we’ve done and be confident for the future.

“We can be happy with the win, but we need to be ready for the next game now.

“We watched Bournemouth from their last few games and it will be hard, but we need to do our job and not think about the others too much.”
