AFC Bournemouth v Newcastle United – Premier League

Bournemouth and Newcastle United meet in the Premier League on Saturday

Bournemouth will welcome Newcastle United to the Vitality Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday.

 

The hosts recorded a 2-1 win over Burnley last month, their first victory in the Premier League this season. They failed to build on that performance as they fell to a 6-1 away loss against reigning champions Manchester City last week. It was their seventh loss in the league campaign and they remain in 18th place in the league table.

 

The visitors extended their unbeaten run in the league to seven games last week, defeating Arsenal 1-0 in their home game. Anthony Gordon scored the only goal of the match in the 64th minute with Joelinton picking up the assist.

 

They met Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday, suffering a 2-0 defeat and dropping to the bottom of the group table.
