We all know Benitez as a manager that prefers to keep his players, supporters and the opposition second-guessing his lineups, one that would be unperturbed about altering a team that defeated the current second best club in the Premier League.

Three points is an absolute must. It was the Cherries' first league defeat of 2018, and they've now had a couple of weeks to ruminate over it.

Newcastle's display on the south coast - which followed a surprise victory over Manchester United - was largely positive and manager Benitez feels his players are showing they have the ability to avoid an immediate return to the Championship.

"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".

But, after Kenedy had fired over with a pair of long-range efforts, Newcastle took the lead with a well-worked move. We never really recovered from conceding the first goal.

With our last performance against Manchester United, this setback isn't drastic and a win against Bournemouth is definitely still attainable.

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 Premier League, when you give yourself a mountain to climb, it is a long way back in games. In the end, I have to praise the spirit of the players".

'The main thing for me is not just where you are in the table, ' said the Spaniard. I'm not saying that Bournemouth aren't playing well or aren't a good side, but just that [2.2] seems short, especially against a Newcastle team that's quite tough to beat.

Jonjo Shelvey played a brilliant ball down the right for Matt Ritchie, whose low cross eventually fell to Gayle as he won a challenge with Begovic before nonchalantly backheeling the ball into the empty net.
