Newcastle vs Bournemouth

Saturday November 10th, 15:00

The Premier League continues this weekend with Newcastle hoping to build on their first victory of the season as they take on in-form Bournemouth at St. James’ Park in a Saturday afternoon kick-off.

Predictions

Each of these two sides’ most recent results sharply contrast against their respective form guide this season.

Newcastle registered their first league victory in 11 attempts last time out as they saw off Watford 1-0 at home, to take them out of the relegation zone.

Bournemouth fell to a last-gasp home defeat against Manchester United but impressively remain above the Red Devils, in sixth, courtesy of a superior goal difference.

Eddie Howe’s Cherries have enjoyed a fantastic season with a direct attack mixed with a defensive solidity, while their opponents on Saturday have scored just seven times in 11 games.

This is an important match for both teams, with the Magpies hoping to spark a little bit of momentum to climb up the table while Bournemouth will be desperate to bounce back from defeat.

However, the away side have to go into this game as favourites due to their superior quality and having collected more than three times the number of points as their opponents.

The hosts badly struggle for goals while Bournemouth are defensively solid, so a 2-0 away win appears the most likely outcome.

Betting Tips

Newcastle have conceded four goals fewer than Manchester United this season, but only Huddersfield have scored fewer than their seven in 11 attempts. It is a damning statistic which reflects a team who seem to enter games with the intention of avoiding defeat rather than seeking a victory. Bournemouth will look to control this game but will not go gung ho and will believe one or two goals will be enough to secure victory.

The former Coventry City striker has been in fine form this season, already netting six league goals including three in his last three outings. The 26-year-old seems to have finally overcome his terrible luck with injuries and found the net against Manchester United last time out. He will head the Cherries attack here and is likely to continue his recent form in front of goal.

Statistics

Head to Head

Two goals in the final ten minutes rescued a point for Bournemouth the last time the two sides met – in a pulsating 2-2 draw at the Vitality Stadium back in February.

However, the South Coast side had won each of the previous two meetings at St. James’ Park, 0-1 and 1-3.

Stats

  • Prior to Newcastle’s victory at home to Watford last weekend, they had lost each of their five home league games this season.
  • Bournemouth have won three of their five away matches to date, scoring nine goals in the process.
  • Callum Wilson (6) has scored only one goal fewer than Newcastle United this season.
  • Bournemouth have scored a goal in the final minute during each of their last three matches against Newcastle.
