Bournemouth will be looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League when they travel to Newcastle United on Saturday.

The Cherries currently sit in 19th position in the top flight and have taken just seven points from their opening ten league games this season. Last time out a mistake from Simon Francis proved costly as Eden Hazard fired Chelsea to a 1-0 victory at the Vitality. 

Bournemouth's opponents this weekend, meanwhile, are performing above expectations. The Magpies, who won the Championship last season, are in ninth place after claiming 14 points from their first ten matches back in the top flight. 

Eddie Howe will be hoping Josh King (back) and Ryan Fraser (knock) recover for the clash but he is expected to be without Junior Stanislas (groin), Benik Afobe (knock), Brad Smith (hip), Tyrone Mings (back) and Adam Federici (knee).

In their last meeting, Bournemouth recorded a 3-1 win over Newcastle. The Cherries will be hoping for a repeat scoreline result this time around, and one that could kickstart their campaign.
