Newcastle will attempt to build on their recent good form when they welcome Bournemouth to St James’ Park in the English Premier League. Saturday’s clash features two teams who have looked solid at the back which means a low scoring contest is on the cards.

Newcastle United Form

Newcastle showed their worth at West Ham as they claimed a 3-2 victory. Early goals from Ciaran Clark and Federico Fernandez gave them a comfortable halftime lead while Jonjo Shelvey added the third before a late scare.

It was the first time Newcastle have scored more than one goal in a match this season as they had nine shots on target and 1.93 expected goals. Steve Bruce’s men appear to have turned a corner since their humiliation at Leicester and are unbeaten in three of their last four matches, beating Manchester United and West Ham in that run.

Newcastle United News

Newcastle remain without Sean Longstaff who serves the second of his three-match suspension. Jonjo Shelvey should continue in place of the midfielder following his goal at West Ham, Joelinton is the lone man in attack despite scoring just one goal this season.

Bournemouth Form

Bournemouth are also coming off a victory as they saw off Manchester United 1-0 at the Vitality Stadium. Joshua King’s effort on the stroke of halftime proved to be the difference as they had six shots on target and 1.87 expected goals.

The Cherries appear to have overcome a recent rough patch as they have only suffered one defeat in their last seven Premier League matches. Eddie Howe’s men have been surprisingly tight at the back and have kept three straight clean sheets.

Bournemouth News

Steve Cook impressed against Manchester United and is set to retain his place in central defence alongside Nathan Ake. Callum Wilson and Joshua King should continue their partnership in attack despite combining for just one goal in their last four matches.

Newcastle vs Bournemouth Match Up

Newcastle have not been prolific in attack with top striker Joelinton scoring just once this season. They have made up for it by being tight at the back with the impressive Jamaal Lascelles helping the team to two clean sheets in their last three home matches.

Bournemouth have developed a mean streak at the back thanks to Nathan Ake and Steve Cook who have been pivotal in their run of three straight clean sheets. With Callum Wilson and Joshua King not at their best lately, the central defenders will be key for the Cherries at St James’ Park.
