Callum Wilson makes his first Premier League start since January as Bournemouth take on Newcastle United at St James' Park.
Callum Wilson will make his first Premier League start since January during Bournemouth's trip to face Newcastle United at St James' Park this afternoon.
The striker has suffered two serious knee injuries since joining the Cherries, but leads the line this afternoon as Jermain Defoe drops to the bench for Eddie Howe's side.
The change is one of five made by Howe from the side that was beaten by Chelsea last weekend, with injured duo Junior Stanislas and Benik Afobe among those to miss out.
Adam Smith and Lewis Cook also drop to the bench for the visitors, who are able to welcome last season's top scorer Joshua King back into the side following injury.
Jordon Ibe, Harry Arter and Marc Pugh are also handed starts for the trip to St James' Park as Bournemouth look to climb out of the relegation zone following their worst ever start to a Premier League season.
The hosts could move as high as sixth with a first home win over Bournemouth since 1990, and they have made two changes to the side beaten by Burnley on Monday.
Isaac Hayden has recovered from a calf injury to feature, replacing Mohamed Diame in midfield while Ayoze Perez makes way for the returning Dwight Gayle.
Newcastle United: Elliot; Yedlin, Lejeune, Lascelles, Manquillo; Ritchie, Hayden, Shelvey, Atsu; Gayle, Joselu
Subs: Darlow, Gamez, Clark, Diame, Murphy, Perez, Mitrovic
Bournemouth: Begovic; Francis, S Cook, Ake, Daniels; Ibe, Arter, King, Surman, Pugh; Wilson
