Newcastle United will make a long trip to the South Coast to take on Bournemouth at Vitality Stadium on Saturday.
Both sides come into this game following a two-week break from football. In their last league game, the Cherries suffered an embarrassing 4-1 defeat at Huddersfield Town. However, that defeat came after an impressive unbeaten seven-game run in the league, including wins over Arsenal and Chelsea.
On the back of their recent form, the South Coast side have climbed up to the tenth spot in the league table with 31 points.
The Magpies claimed a 1-0 home win over Manchester United before the break, and there is no doubt that they must be high on confidence right now.
The win over United was preceded by consecutive 1-1 draws against Burnley and Crystal Palace. Due to the recent upturn in form, Newcastle have moved up to 13th in the table. However, at 28 points, they are just a couple of points clear of the drop zone.
They haven’t managed back-to-back wins in the league since September, and we don’t see them achieving this feat on Saturday.
Earlier this season, the Cherries claimed a 1-0 win at St James’ Park, courtesy of Steve Cook’s injury-time goal.
