Bournemouth v Newcastle (15:00 GMT)

Jonathan Pearce

BBC Match of the Day commentator

Every time I try and predict who's going down, it changes. I've never known a season like this.

Bournemouth were uncharacteristically shambolic at Huddersfield. But they're on a good home run, have goals in the side and confidence is still high from the wins against Arsenal and Chelsea. Two more victories should see them safe.

Newcastle are more solid now. St James' Park was rocking against Manchester United. But this is a long way from home and they've lost all five of their away games at top-10 sides.

A point would be a tonic for Rafa Benitez's side, who have must-win home games against Southampton and Huddersfield next month.

Slimani out

Bournemouth v Newcastle (15:00 GMT)

Another week goes by and Newcastle are yet to see January loan signing Islam Slimani.

The Algerian will be out for at least the next fortnight after suffering a setback in his recovery from a thigh injury.
