Newcastle United v Bournemouth

Match Preview
Newcastle and Bournemouth have enjoyed contrasting starts to the 2018-19 campaign as they prepare to meet on Saturday.

Newcastle and Bournemouth have enjoyed contrasting starts to the 2018-19 campaign as they prepare to meet on Saturday.

The Magpies claimed their first win of the term last time out when beating Watford 1-0 at home and will be eyeing a second successive triumph at St James’ Park this weekend.

Newcastle‘s victory over the Hornets lifted them out of the bottom three and they are seeking consecutive league wins for the first time since April.

Rafael Benitez does have some injury worries to contend with and has confirmed Jamal Lascelles, Yoshinori Muto and Jonjo Shelvey are likely to miss out.

All three sustained injuries in the victory over Watford and will face late fitness tests.

Bournemouth are flying high in the Premier League standings after winning six of their opening 11 games.

They head into the game sitting sixth, despite losing 2-1 to Manchester United last weekend, and Eddie Howe will be keen to see the Cherries get back on track.

The south coast club could seal a third consecutive away top-flight win for the first time in their history if they take the maximum points away from the north east.

Norway international striker Joshua King is back in training after missing the last three games with an ankle injury and could be involved in the matchday squad.

Callum Wilson already boasts six goals for the season and will head into the clash full of confidence after being named in the senior England squad for the first time.

Newcastle are yet to win any of their previous two home Premier League matches against Bournemouth.
