Frank Lampard Criticises Jonjo Shelvey's Defensive Efforts in Draw Against Bournemouth

Predicted Bournemouth XI vs Newcastle

Predicted Bournemouth XI vs Newcastle

Saturday's draw means that Newcastle are still just two points clear of the relegation zone and may slip further into trouble next week, when they face a tough trip to Liverpool.

And Gosling's strike inflicted more late misery on the Magpies as the Cherries continued their knack of salvaging points in the latter stages of games. We knew he was carrying a small injury. It will at least be a couple of weeks.

"I think it's a concentration thing, I think it's a mentality thing, he switches off and Rafa Benitez will be livid and that's why he doesn't play him sometimes - moments like that can cost you a game".

Bournemouth certainly have reason to think they can produce a much better display on Saturday.


But, after Kenedy had fired over with a pair of long-range efforts, Newcastle took the lead with a well-worked move.

Eddie Howe labelled Bournemouth's 2-2 draw with Newcastle "a odd afternoon" after his side scored twice in the last 10 minutes. "Hopefully he will still help us in the next games".

Newcastle boosted their survival hopes with a 1-0 home win over Manchester United last time out.

Although he is still struggling with a thigh injury, I believe on-loan Leicester striker Islam Slimani could prove to be a great signing when fit. "In the end, I have to praise the spirit of the players". They had to come from behind in their wins over Arsenal and Stoke, and they grabbed a late victor against Everton. "This can happen, especially in the Premier League". Dwight Gayle's first half double had propelled them to the dizzy heights of 10th and when Jonjo Shelvey lined up to fire into the top corner, they were preparing to celebrate a third 11 minutes from time. "In two out of those three games, we've come back and got something but the challenge I'm going to lay down to the players is to start better obviously and try and go the other way".
