The early Premier League game comes from the Vitality Stadium in Bournemouth where Newcastle will take on the home side with both teams desperate for a win that would move them away from the relegation zone. Newcastle come into this game with just one win on the season and four draws, the Magpies have lost four of their five away games and Steve McLaren's side are really struggling for form. Wijnaldum has been a bright spark for Newcastle and alongside Mitrovich and Perez they have been success stories in an other wise depressing yeat for Newcastle. It's games like this one away to an inexperienced team that was just promoted that Newcastle will target to try to pick up the away wins they will need to survive.
Bournemouth have lost four in a row and are fast tumbling down the table towards a relegation battle that they do not want to be involved in. Eddie Howe's side have been very unlucky with injury's losing three of their most important players Wilson, Mings and Gradel to season ending injuries. Glenn Murray has come in and done well since his transfer from Crystal Palace and he will be a key focal point up front for Bournemouth. Murray was a spark for Crystal Palace last season and has proven he can score goals and cause problems for defences at this level. Surman, Arter, Gosling and Matt Ritchie are going to have to provide the inspiration and support through midfield.
A good game to kick off the Premier League weekend with two well matched teams, both needing a win and both struggling for form. This one should be a really tense encounter. The pressures of playing in the Premier League is starting to appear on Bournemouth and they need a win as a team or they will go into free fall if they continue to lose as they have done over the last month. Newcastle and their high profile manager Steve McLaren definitely need a win as well. Going to take both teams to score here. I think both teams will be nervy and should lead to some mistakes, Newcastle have players up front that can cause damage and I think they might be a decent bet to get a win here, I do believe both teams to score though is the best value bet.
