Newcastle United – Team news: Magpies unchanged for Bournemouth

Newcastle United head coach Steve Bruce has named an unchanged starting 11 for Saturday’s Premier League game at home to AFC Bournemouth (3pm kick-off).

The Magpies beat West Ham United 3-2 in the capital last weekend in a display that earned Bruce and his side the LG Performance of the Week award, and the United boss has opted to keep faith with the team that saw off the Hammers.

That means Martin Dúbravka continues in goal, with Federico Fernández – who netted his first goal for Newcastle at the London Stadium – lining up alongside Jamaal Lascelles and Ciaran Clark in central defence.

DeAndre Yedlin and Jetro Willems provide width on the flanks, with Isaac Hayden partnering Jonjo Shelvey in the middle of the park.

And United’s front three, who were outstanding against the Hammers, get another chance to impress against the Cherries with Allan Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almirón either side of frontman Joelinton.

Karl Darlow, Emil Krafth, Paul Dummett and Matty Longstaff are all named on the bench.

And Christian Atsu, Dwight Gayle and Andy Carroll are the more forward-minded options among the Magpies substitutes.

Newcastle United: Martin Dúbravka; DeAndre Yedlin, Federico Fernández, Jamaal Lascelles, Ciaran Clark, Jetro Willems; Isaac Hayden, Jonjo Shelvey; Allan Saint-Maximin, Joelinton, Miguel Almirón

Substitutes: Karl Darlow, Emil Krafth, Paul Dummett, Matty Longstaff, Christian Atsu, Dwight Gayle, Andy Carroll.
