When is Bournemouth v Newcastle?

Barring any health emergencies, the game is scheduled to take place on Wednesday July 1.

What time does Bournemouth v Newcastle kick-off?

The game is scheduled for a 6pm kick-off and is one of three Premier League matches in that time-slot with another to follow at 8.15pm.

What is at stake?

Without question it is far more important for Bournemouth. The Cherries go into the match in the bottom three, but within touching distance of those above them. A win would be massive in their fight for survival.

Newcastle have done well since the Premier League restarted and have eased themselves clear into mid-table. Europa League qualification is likely to be beyond them, but any relegation worries have been long forgotten about.

Where can I watch Bournemouth v Newcastle?

The match will be broadcast by Sky Sports.

Is Bournemouth v Newcastle free-to-air?

It is, yes! Sky have opted to make this one free-to-air, so watch out for it on Sky One as well as the subscription sports channels.

What is the team news?

Newcastle had a tough FA Cup quarter-final against Man City on Sunday, so Steve Bruce may opt to make changes to protect his players from injuries. Joelinton is likely to return to the starting line-up, and there may be a recall in midfield for Jonjo Shelvey. Established first-choice goalkeeper Martin Dubravka will also return between the sticks.

Callum Wilson will be missing for Bournemouth through suspension, but that loss could be offset by the likely return of Joshua King. Philip Billing is also expected to be declared fit, but Simon Francis and Charlie Daniels remain sidelined.


What happened in the reverse match?

Ciaran Clark was Newcastle’s matchwinner as they came back from a goal down to beat Bournemouth 2-1 at St James’ Park in November.

What are the odds?

The bookies are struggling to separate these two, but Bournemouth’s greater need see them installed as the 11/8 favourites. Newcastle are priced at 21/10, while the draw can be backed at 11/5.
