- 1st Half
After a minute's silence, the match gets underway.
Newcastle, in form, are the favourites by some distance here, but there's always a nagging feeling of impending disaster when it comes to both Newcastle and Benitez.
Benitez has been linked with the West Ham job, and others, with his work so far this season. But Newcastle are on their way to new, richer owners, and Benitez is a solid manager for anyone looking to stay in the top half.

Newcastle could move as high as sixth with a win today, over Rafa Benitez's previous team Liverpool. Bournemouth, however, are struggling. They're just above Palace, who are bottom, meaning that unless they put together a serious run of form soon, they will get sucked into relegation bother for the rest of the season.
Fans are expecting big things from Newcastle. They start with two forwards Dwight Gayle and Joselu given the nod to lead the attack. Teams: Newcastle: Elliot, Yedlin, Lascelles, Lejeune, Manquillo, Shelvey, Gayle, Ritchie, Hayden, Atsu, Joselu..subs: Clark, Murphy, Diame, Perez, Darlow, Jesus Gamez, Mitrovic///Bournemouth: Begovic, Ake, Francis, Steve Cook, Daniels, Ibe, Surman, Arter, Pugh, Callum Wilson, King..subs: Boruc, Gosling, Adam Smith, Lewis Cook, Defoe, Fraser, Mousset.
