Newcastle United's confirmed starting XI v Bournemouth: £90m trio drop out in new injury blow
Eddie Howe has made three changes to his Newcastle United starting XI for this evening's Premier League clash against Bournemouth.
Howe has handed a first league start to 17-year-old Lewis Miley in place of the suspended Bruno Guimaraes. Meanwhile, Tino Livramento drops to the bench with Miguel Almiron recalled. Anthony Gordon leads the line in place of the injured Callum Wilson.
Wilson started the 2-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday evening but was brought off at half-time because of hamstring tightness. He has been called up to Gareth Southgate's England squad for Euro 2024 qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia next weekend but is now a major doubt.

Alexander Isak, Harvey Barnes, Jacob Murphy, Dan Burn, Elliot Anderson, Sven Botman, Javier Manquillo and Matt Targett are injured, while Sandro Tonali is serving a 10-month ban from football.
Howe has called up under-21s trio Amadou Diallo, Alex Murphy and Ben Parkinson to the bench. The latter two appeared for the Magpies' first-team in pre-season.
Manchester United have scored nine goals in three Champions League away matches, and not won any of them. That is more than Borussia Dortmund, Lazio, Inter Milan, Real Sociedad and PSV Eindhoven, all of whom have already qualified for the knockout stages, have each scored in five games in the competition this term.

The cross was delivered by Bukayo Saka, and the finishing touch was provided by Kai Havertz, but Arsenal’s winner at Brentford would never have materialised without the work of Martin Odegaard in the build-up.
