Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Buoyed by a hard-fought 1-0 win over Arsenal, Newcastle United will look to rejoin the title race when they take on relegation strugglers Bournemouth in the last game of Saturday’s program. The Magpies survived the Gunners without key attacker Alexander Isak, who remains in the recovery room, while influential midfielder Bruno Guimaraes misses out through suspension. Sandro Tonali is banned as well following a betting scandal, while Matthew Targett, Elliot Anderson, and Sven Botman remain on the sidelines with injuries.
The Cherries, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 6-1 loss to Manchester City, but given the number of absentees in the visiting team, we predict that Andoni Iraola’s men are going to grab something from Saturday’s encounter. Lewis Cook is out of contention through suspension, while all Ryan Fredericks, Marcondes, Tyler Adams, and Neto remain in the treatment room.
Highlighted Player (Jamaal Lascelles):
Born in Derby on November 11, 1993, Jamaal Lascelles is an English footballer who plays for Newcastle United as a defender. Lascelles began his youth career at Nottingham Forest and he continued playing for the Reds on senior level.
After scoring two goals in 32 appearances for Forest, Jamaal Lascelles moved to Newcastle United in 2014 and he has been playing for the Magpies ever since. The 188-cm-tall centre-back has a deal with Newcastle United, which should expire in June, 2023. Jamaal Lascelles made two appearances for England U21, but he has yet to make his senior debut with the Three Lions.
Speaking of his individual honours, the English defender was part of PFA Team of the Year for the 2016/2017 Championship season. Jamaal Lascelles scored three goals in 35 appearances for Newcastle United in the 2017/2018 Premier League season, helping Rafa Benitez’s team secure yet another top flight survival.
Highlighted Team (Bournemouth):
Bournemouth are a professional football club that was formed back in 1890. The Cherries secured promotion to the Premier League in the 2015/2016 season, with the team making it to the English top flight for the first time ever.
Bournemouth play their home games at Dean Court and the capacity of the stadium is 11,469.
The Cherries enjoyed a very successful season on their Premier League debut, with the team beating the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United in the national championship. Glenn Murray scored the winner for Bournemouth in the 1-0 win over the capital club at Stamford Bridge and that is probably the greatest victory in the club’s history.
Bournemouth have been participating in the FA Cup since 1913, but they have yet to win the trophy in the prestigious competition. It has to be noted that the club’s original name Boscombe Athletic Football Club was changed to Bournemouth back in 1923 as the club owners wanted the Cherries to be more representative of the district.
