The Cherries’ attacking play has been particularly poor since the restart and Eddie Howe will be looking for a big improvement.

Team news

Newcastle are without long-term absentees Jetro Willems and Jack Colback. Matt Ritchie is a doubt.

Predicted line-ups

Bournemouth: Ramsdale, Stacey, S Cook, Ake, Smith, H Wilson, L Cook, Lerma, Gosling, Stanislas, Solanke.

Odds

Newcastle: 23/10

Prediction

Bournemouth’s woeful lack of attacking intent means they’ve barely laid a glove on opponents since the league’s restart and, potentially without their two main strikers, it’s difficult to see that changing here.

Newcastle look more solid, more adventurous when their attacking players are on the pitch and are free from the pressures of worrying about the drop.
