What Trueform says for Newcastle vs Bournemouth
Newcastle secured a first Premier League win of the season when edging out Watford last weekend and can pick up another valuable point on home turf when entertaining Bournemouth.
Manchester United halted the Cherries’ good run of results and Eddie Howe may also now settle for a share of the spoils on Tyneside.
Everything suggests this should be a close contest and 23/10 for a stalemate is our opening Newcastle vs Bournemouth prediction.
A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds
Newcastle weren’t totally convincing against the Hornets and had to ride their luck at times, with Gerard Deulofeu wasting two glorious first-half chances and Roberto Pereyra hitting the bar.
However, Ayoze Perez came off the bench to net the only goal of the game and has urged the Magpies to use the victory as a springboard to ease themselves out of trouble.
He said: “It feels great. It has been a tough few weeks, but the team stuck together.
“We now have to keep this winning feeling. We must go again against Bournemouth. This has given us a lot of confidence.”
The Magpies were adept at putting together a sequence of positive results whenever winning last season and should be able to play with more freedom here.
Last Newcastle line-up: Dubravka, Dummett, Lascelles, Fernandez, Yedlin, Shelvey, Diame, Ritchie, Kenedy, Rondon, Muto.
Newcastle are likely to be without Jamaal Lascelles (shoulder), Jonjo Shelvey (muscle injury) and Yoshinori Muto (calf).
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
Bournemouth’s six-match unbeaten run in all competitions, which had included five wins, came to an end in heart-breaking fashion when Marcus Rashford struck in stoppage time at Vitality Stadium.
The Cherries had earlier started brightly and Callum Wilson’s 50th goal for the club gave them an 11th-minute lead, which Anthony Martial cancelled out.
Howe’s side played some fine football during the first period and Wilson refused to be downbeat, stating: “We are still improving.
“We lost but there are still things we can learn from and we are disappointed not to come away with anything, having played well.”
Wilson has rightly hogged the headlines for netting seven times this term, but winger Ryan Fraser is also going well with four and looked dangerous against the Red Devils.
Last Bournemouth line-up: Begovic, Francis, S Cook, Ake, Smith, Lerma, L Cook, Stanislas, Brooks, Fraser, Wilson.
Bournemouth will hand a late fitness test to Joshua King, who has missed the last three matches due to an ankle injury but has returned to training this week.
