Newcastle have shown plenty in the way of fighting spirit as they have hauled themselves away from the relegation zone over the past few weeks, three wins coming in four outings. Nevertheless their three much-needed victories came in front of their own home fans and the pressure hasn’t really lifted too much from boss Rafael Benitez’s shoulders as his side struggle to pick up points on their travels.
The Magpies have earned just two points in their last six away games in the league and their only real confidence booster on the road will have been their 4-2 FA Cup win at Blackburn Rovers. They have subsequently been the victim of narrow defeats to Tottenham Hotspur (1-0) and West Ham United (2-0) with a single point earned in their 1-1 draw at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Bournemouth sit three points above their weekend opponents as things stand and they head into this match on the back of a 2-0 win at Huddersfield Town last time out, this ending a dismal run during which they had collected just a single point in their previous five league outings. With the Magpies struggling to find the back of the net on their travels and the Cherries putting in some solid defensive displays at Dean Court, we’ll be siding with the home side to grab all three points on Saturday afternoon with William Hill Bookmakers going 21/20 on Bournemouth to win.
