AFC Bournemouth vs Newcastle United - Saturday 11th November, Kick-off - 5:30pm

Eddie Howe has a very minimal squad to choose from going into this game as he has 12 players unavailable through injury and suspension.

Also, Callum Wilson faces a late fitness test and is currently 50/50 as to whether he will be involved. For our predicted XI we've gone with a lineup that includes Wilson, mostly because we couldn't agree on who comes in if he's not, whether it be Lewis Miley in midfield to push Joelinton out to the left and have Anthony Gordon through the middle, or bring Matt Ritchie into the fold on the flank, or whether we go with Lewis Hall at left-back and Tino Livramento up to again.

It just shows that despite the lack of players, Howe still has options.


Nick Pope - No surprise there.


Tino Livramento - Right back duties for our exciting young player who has been phenomenal every time we've seen him.

Jamaal Lascelles - The skipper keeps his place as Sven Botman is no closer to a return.

Fabian Schar - Mr Dependable retains his spot.

Kieran Trippier - Mini Skipper moves out to the left side of the defence for this one.

Newcastle United 7
Our predicted lineup to face Bournemouth


Sean Longstaff - No reason for Longy to not keep his spot despite a below-average display against Dortmund.

Joelinton - Big J7 will step into the Bruno Guimaraes role as the number 39 misses this game through suspension.

Joe Willock - Bournemouth should be terrified at the prospect of Willock and Anthony Gordon down that left-hand side.


Miguel Almiron - If he's fit he plays these days. Simple as that.

Anthony Gordon - He and Willock are going to cause Bournemouth nightmares, and he will once again show Gareth Southgate what he's missing.

Callum Wilson - 50/50 for this game but if he makes it through he will no doubt relish the opportunity to put one past his old side.

This was another tricky one, particularly with the uncertainty around Callum Wilson, but it's a side that should have no trouble defeating Bournemouth even if Wilson doesn't make it.
