Bournemouth took the lead with Billing’s deft strike in the 62nd minute, but Isak converted a penalty five minutes later after Jefferson Lerma crossed the box.
This left both sides with eight points from their first seven games, but the difference in total goals (+1 and -13) means Newcastle are in 10th place and Bournemouth in 12th.
What we learned from the match Newcastle – Bournemouth
Brave Bournemouth fully deserves his point (maybe more)
With the score 0-0 at half-time, Bournemouth won the first half. They gave Newcastle almost no chance to see their goal and although they created very little (even less) themselves, achieving a still-pointless break put all the pressure on Newcastle as the home side and a side heavily favoring a win. At the same time, the âlesserâ side gains confidence and belief that they can steal something in the final 45.
As disciplined and adventurous as Bournemouth were with their pressing and counter attacks, it should be noted that Newcastle equally lacked the ambition and faith to control the game and win. St. James Park grew restless and dull as the other half dragged on, unable to comprehend non-intervention approach against the just advanced side.

Back to the litmus tests mentioned above…
Newcastle have only lost once and see themselves as a team that inevitably rises to the top. A win over Bournemouth at home will continue to show that this rise could come even faster than predicted after the big money grab from the Middle East.
Bournemouth were beaten by the big boys but scored seven points in the bottom half. Is Gary O’Neill right for the job? Was Scott Parker the scapegoat after those devastating losses to superteams? Perhaps both?
Uniform players to keep an eye on
Newcastle: Well, it depends on who’s healthy, right? Newcastle’s two best players at the start of the season were Bruno Guimares and Allan Saint-Maximin, but both are in question on Saturday. If they leave, all eyes will be on them and the signing of Alexander Isak. But Sven Botman and Fabian Schar were a reliable partner in the rear, and Kieran Trippier was the courage and fire of the unit. Nick Pope was also impressive between clubs.
Bournemouth: Dominic Solanke scored in the Forest win and Jadon Anthony came off the bench to score, but Bournemouth’s success was equally driven by steel. Look at Phillip Billing and Jefferson Lerm, who beat the defenders behind and the attackers from above.
Newcastle team news, injuries, squad options
Newcastle’s injury problems have improved slightly, though Jonjo Shelvey (thigh), Carl Darlow (ankle) and Emil Kraft (knee) are still not featured. Allan Saint-Maximin (thigh) and Bruno Guimares (thigh) are very close to returning and Bournemouth fans are hoping they need it. simply A little bit longer. Callum Wilson slightly disagrees with the return, but could play against his former team.
Kieran Trippier and Joe Willock have managed Newcastle in the absence of the aforementioned stars, while new striker Alexander Isak has looked brilliant since he left Real Sociedad.

This is a great away kit that will become a classic. Expect these beauties to fly off the shelves and become neutral-loving jerseys as much as El Tri fans. The home kit is also very decent.

Absolutely sensational work. The home kit is quite unique but still sticks to the bold colors of Portugal, while the away kit is also a classic.
