Newcastle United will lock horns with Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium this Saturday evening as they hope to earn a good result on the road in the Premier League. The Magpies were held to a 1-1 draw by West Ham United recently, so they will be eager to get back to winning ways in the league this weekend.
Eddie Howe will set his players up in a 4-3-3 formation and could make one tweak to his first XI for this game. Anthony Gordon will probably get a chance to impress from the start while Allan Saint-Maximin has to settle for a spot on the bench.
4-3-3 Newcastle United Predicted Lineup To Face Bournemouth
Nick Pope will operate as Newcastle’s first-choice keeper once again after conceding one goal in his last appearance. Fabian Schar will resume his defensive partnership with Sven Botman at the centre of Newcastle’s defence as they look to keep things solid at the back during the 90 minutes.
Dan Burn will operate as the left-back while Kieran Trippier tries to give a good account of himself on the other side as the right-back. Both of them will get the license to get forward and express themselves in the Bournemouth half.
Jamaal Lascelles will be named on the bench as he provides cover for the defensive positions.
Joelinton, Sean Longstaff and Joe Willock will make up Newcastle’s midfield as they look to dictate the tempo of the game at the centre of the park and orchestrate enough clear-cut chances for the Magpies to win this contest.
Bruno Guimaraes is suspended for this game but Elliot Anderson should be available for a spot on Howe’s bench as he waits for his chance to make an impact in the second half if required.
Anthony Gordon could get a chance to function as the left-sided wide player while Miguel Almiron hopes to put his pace to good use on the right flank. Both of them would have to find a way to cause a few headaches for the Bournemouth defenders this weekend.
Callum Wilson will lead the charge for the Tyneside club on the attacking end of the field. He would be eager to get his name on the scoresheet after his goal-scoring performance versus West Ham United recently.
Alexander Isak is a major doubt for this game and will be in a race against time to be fit for this clash away from home.
