The Newcastle United Blog | Burn, Fraser and Guimaraes start against Bournemouth

This is the team that Eddie Howe has named for this afternoon’s game against Bournemouth. He has two changes from the scoreless draw against Crystal Palace last time out.

Bruno Guimaraes is fit and returns to the starting XI with Sean Longstaff making way. Howe chose Dan Burn over Sven Botman to partner Fabian Schar at the back.

Allan Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson are not risky with the very suspicious bench. There is also no Elliot Anderson in the squad, which is concerning. New recruit Loris Karius supports Nick Pope.

Here’s who Gary O’Neil named for the Cherries with former NUFC youth product Marcus Tavernier making his debut.

Newcastle have a great opportunity to move into the top half of the table. A win will move us just outside of a European spot. Anything less will be a big disappointment heading into the two-week break.

Good job guys !
