    Newcastle 2-1 Bournemouth

    That's it!

    Newcastle secure back-to-back victories in the Premier League while condemning Bournemouth to consecutive defeats.

    The home side were well worth their victory on the whole, with Salomon Rondon a standout performer for the hosts.

    A really entertaining game in truth, though a seemingly nasty injury to Adam Smith overshadows it somewhat. We wish him the best.

    You can catch all the reaction to this afternoon's Premier League games here.

    Thanks for joining!

    Newcastle 2-1 Bournemouth

    Rafael Benitez is animated on the touchline, he can sense how close his side are to consecutive Premier League wins.

    Added time is up now...

  3. Post update

    Newcastle 2-1 Bournemouth

    It's all getting a bit heated as Salomon Rondon confronts Lewis Cook for a challenge.

    They're best of friends again now though. Get on with the football.

  4. Post update

    Newcastle 2-1 Bournemouth

    Salomon Rondon wins a clever free-kick for the home side to eat up a few more seconds.

    Time is running out for the visitors as we enter stoppage-time. They were undone by a late goal last weekend, can they make amends...

  5. CLOSE!

    Newcastle 2-1 Bournemouth

    The chance for the hat-trick for Rondon!

    And it's saved by Asmir Begovic who has had a great game despite the scoreline.

    As I write that he collects the corner that follows, too.

    Will Newcastle regret that moment? Bournemouth are charging up the field.


    Newcastle 2-1 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth think they've found an equaliser!

    But it's immediately ruled out - correctly - for an offside.

    Newcastle hanging on in the last few moments.

    Rafael Benitez

    Newcastle 2-1 Bournemouth

    Jermain Defoe is on, welcomed by a chorus of boos from the Newcastle support.

    Jordon Ibe makes way. What have the visitors got in this last 10 minutes?

  8. CLOSE!

    Newcastle 2-1 Bournemouth

    An almost immediate impact from Christian Atsu who cuts inside before unleashing a curled effort to the right of Asmir Begovic.

    The Bournemouth keeper has produced plenty of fine saves this afternoon to keep his side in the contest and that one is up there with one of his best.


    Newcastle 2-1 Bournemouth

    It's well dealt with as Newcastle hold firm.

    Christian Atsu is now on for the hosts - replacing Mohamed Diame who has worked tirelessly in the centre of the park for the Magpies.


    Newcastle 2-1 Bournemouth

    Kenedy receives plenty of applause from the home crowd as he goes off to be replaced by Ciaran Clark.

    A long throw incoming for Bournemouth...

  11. CLOSE!

    Newcastle 2-1 Bournemouth

    That was a huge chance for Jordon Ibe!

    Bournemouth put a few slick passes together on the edge of the penalty area before Ibe is played through on goal. He absolutely has to hit the target as a minimum requirement but launches his shot high into the crowd.

    Had to do better.

  12. Post update

    Newcastle 2-1 Bournemouth

    Salomon Rondon has had seven shots so far in this game - more than double that of any Bournemouth player.

    Ryan Fraser has been the Cherries' main threat, but they haven't looked as fluid going forward as they have in recent weeks. Credit to Newcastle on that front, they've not given the visitors any time on the ball.

  13. Post update

    Newcastle 2-1 Bournemouth

    Newcastle have slowed things down now, as they sway between moments of trying to kill the game and trying to ruin Bournemouth's rhythm.

    They'll be happy with how this is going, the home side, because they do look a threat on the break after absorbing pressure from the Cherries.

  14. CLOSE!

    Newcastle 2-1 Bournemouth

    Kenedy breaks from the Bournemouth corner and Newcastle get men forward quickly.

    The chance looks to have gone but Matt Ritchie gathers the ball and sends an effort narrowly wide of the Cherries' goal. That could've been that.

  15. Post update

    Newcastle 2-1 Bournemouth

    Try not to get too excited, but five of the seven Premier League goals to come in this fixture before today have been scored in the 80th minute or later.

    Bournemouth are growing in confidence in this second half too, and they have a corner here...

  17. CLOSE!

    Newcastle 2-1 Bournemouth

    A chance for the hat-trick for Salomon Rondon goes begging.

    Matt Ritchie delivers the cross on this occasion, but the Venezuelan can't quite direct his header to the inside of the post.

    Everything Newcastle send into the area has been met by Rondon today.

    Simon: Come on The Cherries! Let’s turn this one around, you are more than good enough

    Phil: It's like they've taken a goal scoring laxative isn't it?

    Very eloquently put Phil...

    Ben: There's an error on your website, it's saying that Newcastle are winning again. That's two weeks on the trot now it can't be right surely?

  20. Post update

    Newcastle 2-1 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth are trying to ask questions of the home side now, with Callum Wilson trying to create an opportunity.

    He's looked isolated at times today, and certainly needs more support if the Cherries are going to turn this one around.
