Newcastle United vs AFC Bournemouth

, KO: 15:00 Feb 17, 2024, St James’ Park
AFC Bournemouth

Newcastle United continue their push for a European finish as they host AFC Bournemouth in a Premier League fixture on Saturday. The Magpies are looking sharp at the moment and should have the upper hand over Bournemouth, who have seemingly lost their way in recent weeks.

Newcastle United claimed a 3-2 victory over Nottingham Forest in their previous Premier League fixture. Bruno Guimaraes netted a brace in a thrilling end-to-end encounter while Fabian Schar was also on target.

That result is part of a recent resurgence for Newcastle United, who have lost just once in their last six matches. They have picked up four wins in that run and are seventh on the table, 10 points off the European places.

Newcastle United will be keen to restore the pride to St James’ Park as they are winless in their last three Premier League matches. However, prior to that run, Eddie Howe’s men had claimed seven straight wins in front of their fans, including victories over Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United.

Bournemouth travel to St James’ Park off the back of a 3-1 defeat to Fulham last time out in the Premier League. They went into the break two goals down, with Marcos Senesi scoring what turned out to be a mere consolation five minutes after the restart.

Things are looking a bit rough for Bournemouth in recent weeks as they have picked up just one win from their last five matches. They are currently in the bottom half of the table and while there is no present danger, manager Andoni Iraola will be keen to avoid getting dragged into the relegation scrap.

The defeat at Craven Cottage also highlights Bournemouth’s erratic form on their recent travels. They are now winless in their last three away matches, a run that includes another 3-1 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur.

How the bookies view it

Newcastle United have been installed as overwhelming favourites with a home win priced at 5/6 by bet365. A victory for Bournemouth is valued at 3/1 by Unibet while a draw is set at odds of 16/5 by William Hill.

Head to head

Newcastle United have a 5-3 advantage with four draws from 12 previous matches against Bournemouth. However, the Cherries picked up a 2-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in November with Dominic Solanke netting a brace.

Players to watch

Callum Wilson is expected to continue in attack for Newcastle United and will be keen to get one over on his former club. The striker has seven Premier League goals this season and is priced at 11/10 by bet365 to find the net on Saturday.

As always, Dominic Solanke will be the one to watch for Bournemouth as he looks to add to his 13 Premier League goals this season. The striker netted a brace in the reverse fixture and is priced at 9/5 with Paddy Power to get on the score sheet once again.

Anything else catch the eye?

Newcastle United have seen over 4.5 goals in their last two matches and a repeat is priced at 29/10 by Unibet. Over 3.5 goals could also be considered at 5/4 by Unibet.

The Magpies have scored in both halves in their last four matches and a similar pattern is priced at 11/8 with BoyleSports. Given the minimal odds for a straight home victory, a win and both teams to score could be considered at 2/1 with bet365.
