Gary Neville and Roy Keane have given their predictions for Saturday's evening kick-off which sees Bournemouth host Newcastle.

It's back to Premier League action for Newcastle as they travel to Bournemouth to face Eddie Howe's former club.

Injuries are still a huge issue for Newcastle, but they will feel like this is a game they can win regardless of the squad issues.

Newcastle will be without a recognised striker

Callum Wilson looks likely to miss the return to his former club after coming off at half-time against Borussia Dortmund with a tight hamstring.

That will leave Newcastle with Anthony Gordon playing as striker, or maybe Joelinton if Eddie Howe is feeling saucy.

The lack of a striker has not affected Roy Keane and Gary Neville's predictions. Both pundits have Newcastle scoring twice in their prediction on this week's Stick to Football Podcast.

Ian Wright put down the salt after the Arsenal game and backed Newcastle to win

Roy Keane, helped with his predictions by Ian Wright, shouted out a 2-0 win for Newcastle with Keane saying "No hesitation" as he confirmed his prediction.

Gary Neville and Jill Scott were less adventurous. They'd both said they back Bournemouth to score and eventually settled on a 2-2 draw.

It's not going to be easy given the injuries, but we reckon Roy Keane's got it right here. Or at least got the result right, if not the score.
