Newcastle extended their unbeaten streak to a club-record equaling 17 league appearances, but were forced to settle for a point when Eddie Howe returned to Bournemouth.

After spending more than 10 years as Bournemouth manager for two spells, Howe was back at the Vitality Stadium with his Newcastle side pushing for a Champions League place and his former club stuck in the bottom three.

However, it was Bournemouth who went ahead after half an hour when Dango Ouattara kicked in a corner and Marcos Senesi was left unmarked at the far post to strike home.

Miguel Almiron equalized for the Magpies in first-half stoppage time, firing into the bottom corner after Bournemouth keeper Neto prevented Sean Longstaff’s shot after good work down the left from Allan Saint -Maximin.

Anthony Gordon squandered a glorious chance to put Newcastle ahead in the 70th minute and although the visitors pressed for a late winner, it was Bournemouth who came closest to taking the three points when Dominic Solanke’s flick was cleared off the line by Kieron Trippier in the last minute of the 90s.

Newcastle remain fourth after a fifth draw in six Premier League games, while Bournemouth move within a point of safety but remain 19th.

More soon.
