Pick your Newcastle United starting XI with Gordon and Isak decision to make at Bournemouth

Newcastle United will be searching for a return to winning ways when Eddie Howe makes his first return to former club Bournemouth. The Magpies remain fourth in the Premier League table ahead of Saturday evening's televised encounter at the Vitality Stadium.

Eddie Howe's side have still just lost once in the league all season, but have been held to draws in four of their last five top-flight encounters. Callum Wilson gave the Magpies a dream start in their last outing, only for Lucas Paqueta's strike to earn West Ham a 1-1 draw at St James' Park.

January signing Anthony Gordon made his black-and-white debut from the bench, and his encouraging cameo has raised questions over whether he could be handed a first start against the Cherries. Howe has also confirmed Alexander Isak will return to the matchday squad, having missed the clash with the Hammers due to concussion protocols.
