Justin Kluivert qualified for the fourth round of the FA Cup with Bournemouth on Saturday. The attacker scored the winning goal against Queens Park Rangers: 2-3. Brighton escaped unscathed after an own goal by Jan Paul van Hecke.
With Kluivert on the bench, Bournemouth had a particularly difficult time with Queens Park Rangers, which plays at the second level in England and is in penultimate place there. Halfway through, QPR even had a 2-0 lead.
Immediately after the break, Kluivert came in and put Bournemouth in order. Marcus Tavernier made it 1-2 and Kieffer Moore equalized within the hour. Kluivert prevented both clubs from having to repeat their match soon.
Kluivert came in front of the goal from the right side at 2-3 and tapped the ball in from close range. It was his fourth goal this season for the former Ajax player. The attacker has scored twice in the Premier League so far.
Unfortunate own goal Van Hecke
Bart Verbruggen and Jan Paul van Hecke also reached the next round with Brighton & Hove Albion. The away match against Stoke City ended in a 2-4 victory. Brazilian striker João Pedro made the difference in the last part of the match.
With those goals, Pedro mainly provided Van Hecke with relief. The Dutch youth international had given Stoke City the lead after fifteen minutes by unfortunately sliding the ball behind his own goalkeeper Verbruggen.
Newcastle United won the first Tyne-Wear Derby since 2016. With Sven Botman, Newcastle won 0-3 against Sunderland. The last time the intense derby took place was before Sunderland’s relegation in 2016.
