Preview | September 17

Newcastle United-AFC Bournemouth

Newcastle host Bournemouth.

Mid-table Newcastle welcome 13th place Bournemouth to St. James' Park in Week 8 of the Premier League. This matchup could build momentum for the Magpies, who defeated the Cherries 4-1 in their last league meeting. A deeper look through the history of this matchup also benefits Newcastle. The Magpies have secured at least a point in six of the last eight Premier League meetings between the sides.

Newcastle | DLDDD | 11th | Top Scorer: C. Wilson (2)

After taking 4 points from their last 5 matches, Newcastle will be hoping to end their run of poor results. Newcastle's attacking play is a real cause for concern. In their last 5 matches, they've averaged only 12.4 passes into the box per game and scored only 5 total goals. Following recent struggles, Newcastle will rely on Kieran Trippier's creativity for success in this match. With 33 passes into the box, he ranks 2nd in the EPL.

Bournemouth | WDLLL | 13th | Top Scorer: J. Lerma (1)

Before securing a much-needed win in their last match, Bournemouth had lost 3 of their last 4. Back-to-back wins would go a long way in ending their recent struggles. Scoring goals has been a big problem for Bournemouth and their average xG (expected goals) of 0.5 is the lowest in the league. Topscorer Jefferson Lerma will look to end his poor run of form in front of goal. He's not found the back of the net in his last 5 matches. There are reasons to believe though, top aggressor Lewis Cook has played well, recording 1.6 tackles per match in their last 5.

Prediction: Newcastle 3-1 Bournemouth

This could be a good day for Newcastle's attack. Bournemouth don't look as if they'll be able to manage, but we'll find out at the end of the game.

Did you know? Bournemouth travelled to St. James' Park to play Newcastle in 2016 and won 3-1. That remains the most goals the Magpies have conceded to the Cherries at home in the Premier League.

Can this be the match where Newcastle get a big 3 points? Will Bournemouth build more momentum in this match? Now that you're informed, place a bet on the match, and much more at PokerStars Sports.
