2023-24 Premier League: Week 12 – Bournemouth vs Newcastle

Premier League strugglers, Bournemouth host Newcastle United at the Vitality Stadium. 

Victory or draw would see Bournemouth climb out of the relegation zone if Luton fail to win elsewhere in their mid-afternoon kick-off at Manchester United.

Newcastle meanwhile can go fifth with a win because Aston Villa aren’t in action until Sunday.

Stat Attack

  • Bournemouth are winless in their last seven league meetings against Newcastle (D4, L3).
  • Newcastle are unbeaten in their last five visits to Bournemouth (W2, D3)
  • Bournemouth have scored first in just one of their last four home games against Newcastle.
  • Illia Zabarnyi has made more headed clearances than any other Bournemouth player in the top-flight this season, with 17 headed clearances in 11 appearances.
  • Miguel Almiron has been taken off as a substitute on more occasions than any other Newcastle player in the Premier League this season, having been benched in eight of his 11 appearances.



After being utterly torn apart by Man City with atrocious defending following a solid opening half hour, Bournemouth must reset and take the positives in that they did show plenty of attacking quality when got chances and show that here along with a much better defensive effort.

Newcastle meanwhile produced a valiant effort at Borussia Dortmund in midweek but just lacked the final touch to their chances, whilst defensive errors were deservedly punished but questions will be asked of their attack if Wilson is unavailable whilst Guimaraes is a loss in midfield.

Either way, Bournemouth need to improve their defending quickly but Newcastle seem to enjoy their visits so should have enough to snatch a win even if not at their best.

Prediction: Bournemouth 0-1 Newcastle

Result: Bournemouth 2-0 Newcastle
