Newcastle United is the actual discovery of the current EPL campaign. After the change of ownership, the club made some great transfers and did not spend much money. Still, Eddie Howe has managed to create a powerful team, which ranks third this season. The Magpies played their last official match at home against Chelsea and achieved a minimal advantage over the Aristocrats - 1:0. The club also played in two friendlies. The Magpies thrashed at 5:0 Al-Hilal and beat Rayo Vallecano 2:1.
Bournemouth played poorly before the World Cup break. After a 2:2 draw with Fulham, the Cherries played four games in the Premier League and failed to earn a single point. The club lost to Southampton, West Ham United, Tottenham, and Leeds United. The score during that stretch was 5:11. However, Bournemouth sent three unanswered goals to Everton in the final match. Before that, the club also defeated the Toffees in the EFL Cup by 4:1. Bournemouth is 14th in the EPL standings.
