Here are our Premier League predictions for Bournemouth's trip to St James' Park this weekend. There is pressure on Eddie Howe this season after taking Newcastle to the dizzy heights of the Champions League last season, an achievement that looks a long way off in the current campaign. Will the Magpie's owners stick or twist when it comes to the manager's position?

Player to watch – Kieran Trippier

Kieran Trippier almost left Newcastle for Bayern Munich in the January transfer window but thankfully for the Magpies, the deal never happened. The England full-back offers so much going forward and from set-pieces for Eddie Howe's side, something the club would have struggled to replicate.

Tripper's creativity could be the key

With 10 assists in the Premier League this season, we're backing Trippier to create plenty of goal-scoring opportunities against the Cherries this weekend.
