Newcastle were without either Callum Wilson or Alexander Isak for the game against Bournemouth with both strikers suffering injury setbacks. Jacob Murphy, Dan Burns, Javir Manquillo, Elliot Anderson and Harvey Barnes are also unavailable due to injury while Sandro Tonali won’t be able to play again until next season due to his 10-month ban from football.
