The Seagulls never got going and Bournemouth ended up cruising to all three points. Here's how we rated the players of both teams.

No real chance with any goal. Saved Cook's powerful long-range shot before the break and made another smart stop near the end.
Fraser was a handful for Albion's right-back and a couple of opportunities came from openings down Albion's right in the first half.
Gave away possession when attempting a long ball forward and Bournemouth broke to take the lead. Bournemouth defended set-pieces well to limit his offensive threat.
Had his hands full up against King and Wilson. Comfortable playing the ball out of defence.
Looked to support attacking play down the left. Limited Brooks' threat down the right until the winger made it 3-0 late on.
Tough afternoon for Albion. Mis-directed header allowed Bournemouth to break for early opportunity. Fired across goal and wide at 1-0.
Comfortable on the ball and lovely cross evaded both Locadia and Andone in the first half but it was not one of the midfielder's better games. Subbed.
Looked to get Brighton moving forward in the first half. Dragged early shot wide from 20 yards. Booked.
Unable to find Albion team-mates with crosses into the area, Gave the ball away which led to Bournemouth's second goal. Sent-off for lunge on Smith at 2-0.
Returned to the starting line-up in place of Glenn Murray but things didn't come off for the striker. Wasted one breakaway chance when he over-hit the cross. Booked.
First start since the FA Cup tie against Derby in February. Struggled to really get into the game. Sent shot over in the second half.
Replaced Andone just before the hour.
Sent on just past the hour for Propper.
Replaced Asmir Begovic in goal to make his 15th appearance of the season. Comfortable afternoon. Booked for time wasting.
Defended well up against Locadia. Knockaert saw red for a foul on the defender.
Former Brighton defender returned from injury to play for the first time since early February. Superb defending to stop Duffy getting on the end of Knockaert free kick. Long-range shot well saved at 1-0.
January signing from Brentford made eighth Premier League start. Cleared dangerous low Knockaert cross on 18 minutes. Booked.
Sent in dangerous delivery which King headed wide from close range. Solid in defence. Booked.
Came to life late on when he played a one-two with Fraser and made it 3-0. Then set up Stanislas late on to make it 5-0.
Exchanged passes with Wilson before coolly slotting home to give Bournemouth the lead on 33 minutes. Played a low cross just too far in front of Fraser shortly afterwards. Excellent in midfield. Booked.
Helped Gosling control the game. Looked to keep possession in the middle of the park.
Superb lobbed finish doubled Bournemouth's lead early in the second half. Then set up Brooks to make it 3-0.
Always a threat. Failed to turn home Fraser's cross when unmarked at the back post early on. Headed another decent opening wide on 15 minutes.
Set up Gosling to put Bournemouth ahead and his pass then sent Fraser away to make it 2-0. Got the fourth with a cool finish late on.
Sent on late on.
Replaced Wilson late on and scored the fifth in injury-time.
Late introduction.
