Premier League – Newcastle United to face Bournemouth on Match-day 8
Saturday’s clash between Newcastle and Bournemouth, sees eleventh take on thirteenth in the League.
Newcastle United face his opponents with equal points, with both keen to make progress
When Newcastle last turned out in the Premier League, the result was a disappointing draw 0-0 against Crystal Palace at St James’ Park. They will be hoping for a better result this time.
Also, a draw statistic of four in five fixtures is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Eddie Howe’s men wishes for ultimately. They currently stand eleventh in the League, with seven points for a total of 1 wins, 1 losses and 4 draws having won one game, drawn four fixtures, and lost one game.
When Newcastle host Bournemouth, they will do so on the back of one victory and two draws on their own ground.
A win in this fixture would take Newcastle United’s points to 10 in the League.
Eddie Howe could be missing up to six of their players through injury or illness for the game on Saturday.
Bournemouth face their opponents, equal on points, it will likely be a thrilling encounter
Bournemouth will be eager to return to some kind of winning form, having lost their last game to Nottingham Forest, which itself followed a draw to Wolverhampton Wanderers, this fixture could be the opportunity.
Also, suffering three losses in five meetings is a terrible run of form for any club, Gary O’Neil’s Bournemouth will know this and will be hopeful of turning it around. Their position is thirteenth in the League and they have seven points, that is, 2W, 3L and 1D having won two fixtures, drawn one game, and lost three matches.
Bournemouth have won one game and lost two games of their three League matches playing away this season.
Bournemouth will have secured 10 points so far this season, should they secure a win.
Bournemouth are no strangers this season to illness and injury and Gary O’Neil is concerned that Saturday’s fixture could see him without three of his key players
