  • Newcastle have lost only 1 of their last 10 league matches
  • Newcastle have won their last 2 away matches in all competitions
  • Newcastle have scored 2 goals in each of their last 4 Premier League matches against Bournemouth

THE PREDICTION

Bournemouth remain in serious trouble and they desperately need to get a result after losing their first two matches since the Premier League restarted. They have failed to score in both of those games while they cannot count on Callum Wilson here after he picked up his 10th booking of the season to reduce their firepower even further. Newcastle are playing with freedom as they are virtually safe now and that is seeing them play a more attacking style. They switched to a back five against Man City in the FA Cup at the weekend but they should revert to a flat back four. That may lead to a more open game than many would expect here and while backing Bournemouth to score is difficult, both teams to score could offer good value here.
