Team News: Newcastle United
Bruno Guimarães (Hamstring Injury), Karl Darlow (Ankle Injury), Allan Saint-Maximin (Hamstring Injury), Callum Wilson (Hamstring Injury), Jonjo Shelvey (Hamstring Injury) and Emil Krafth (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) aren’t available for Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe.
We are thinking that The Magpies look set to make use of the 4-3-3 formation for the game, beginning the first half with Nick Pope, Kieran Trippier, Fabian Schaer, Daniel Burn, Matt Targett, Joseph Willock, Bruno Guimaraes, Joelinton, Miguel Almiron, Alexander Isak and Ryan Fraser.
Team News: Bournemouth
Thanks to a completely injury-free squad available to select from, the Bournemouth manager Gary O'Neil has no fitness worries whatsoever coming into this clash.
We’re of the thinking that The Cherries appear most likely to elect for a 4-2-3-1 system, starting the game with Neto, Adam Smith, Chris Mepham, Marcos Senesi, Jordan Zemura, Jefferson Lerma, Lewis Cook, Marcus Tavernier, Philip Billing, Ryan Christie and Dominic Solanke.
When taking all factors into account, Newcastle United have it within them to create enough chances to score more than one when they line up against Bournemouth, who will be up against it to score.
We can therefore see a pretty comfortable 2-0 winning margin for Newcastle United by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
