Bournemouth have struggled with their forward play in more recent games. Their goals record stands at just 4 versus opposition teams during the course of their last 6 matches. In those games, The Cherries have also seen the tally of goals that have gone against them come to 12.
Looking at their past form shows that Bournemouth:
- have left without a victory over Newcastle United in their last 4 league games.
- haven’t won at home in the past 2 league games.
Following on from being defeated in their last game at the hands of Manchester City in FA Cup competition, Newcastle United and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
In that match, Newcastle United managed 24% possession and 4 shots at goal with 1 on target. For their opponents, Manchester City got 20 shots on goal with 4 on target. Kevin De Bruyne (37') and Raheem Sterling (68') scored for Manchester City.
Steve Bruce's Newcastle United have converted 8 times in the course of their latest sextet of matches. The number of goals that have been scored against them during those same matches equals 5.
Heading into this contest, Newcastle United haven't beaten Bournemouth when they've played them away from home in the last 2 league games.
Head to head
If we look at their past head to head meetings stretching back to 05/03/2016, it’s been all-even between these two clubs with Bournemouth winning 2 of those games, Newcastle United 2 and 2 being drawn in normal time.
A combined total of 19 goals were produced between them during those clashes, with 10 from The Cherries and 9 being from The Magpies. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 3.17.
The last league match featuring these sides was Premier League match day 12 on 09/11/2019 when the final score was Newcastle United 2-1 Bournemouth. That time, Newcastle United had 33% possession and 20 shots on goal with 9 on target. The scorers were DeAndre Yedlin (42') and Ciaran Clark (52'). For their opponents, Bournemouth had 16 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. Harry Wilson (14') scored. The match was refereed by Martin Atkinson.
Team News: Bournemouth
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just a single fitness concern for the Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength group of players. Charlie Daniels (Knee Surgery) will miss out.
We are thinking that The Cherries will probably employ a 4-4-1-1 formation for this one with Aaron Ramsdale, Adam Smith, Nathan Benjamin Aké, Steve Cook, Jack Stacey, Junior Stanislas, Jefferson Lerma, Lewis Cook, Harry Wilson, David Brooks and Dominic Solanke.
Team News: Newcastle United
Due to a mostly available squad, there’s only the sole fitness issue for the Newcastle United gaffer Steve Bruce to be concerned about. Jetro Willems (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing here.
We’re of the thinking that The Magpies seem most likely to elect for a 4-2-3-1 formation, starting the game with Martin Dubravka, Javier Manquillo Gaitan, Federico Fernandez, Jamaal Lascelles, Danny Rose, Jonjo Shelvey, Nabil Bentaleb, Dwight Gayle, Miguel Almirón, Allan Saint-Maximin and Joelinton.
We’ve got the feeling that Newcastle United will likely be able to find the net against this Bournemouth outfit, but it possibly won’t be as many as they will have scored against them. We think that it’s going to be both teams to score in a 2-1 winning score for Bournemouth at full-time. It will be interesting to see how this one goes.
