Newcastle manager Eddie Howe was missing several important pieces of the squad due to quarantine and injuries, but the star-studded away side might still have expected a better result away to Howe’s old club Bournemouth.
Former Liverpool talent Solanke and his striking were more than enough to hand Newcastle their fourth Premier League defeat of the season.
Solanke, 26, was brought to Liverpool from Chelsea in 2017, but scored just one Premier League goal in two years before leaving Anfield. For Bournemouth, the striker is now up to six full strikers this season alone.

Slaughter for his own team
– This was frustrating, of course. We were not ourselves. We were not close and Bournemouth won deservedly, Newcastle star and England national team analyst Kieran Trippier commented to Sky Sports.
Bakken was photographed outside on the touchline after the game, in a heated discussion with one or more people in the stands.

A video shared on X, formerly known as Twitter, shows what appears to be large parts of the exchange between Trippier and some of the team’s supporters.
-So the boys didn’t give everything they had?! How many victims do we have? How many victims do we have? He repeated Newcastle’s profile of six assists earlier in the season.
Trippier was eventually removed from the situation by teammate Joelinton.
Newcastle used young teenagers such as new signing Lewis Miley (17) in midfield from the start, and full-back Lewis Hall (19) and substitute Ben Parkinson (18) in the first leg. The latter also played his first match in the English Premier League.
The experienced Trippier did not want to blame any of the youngsters for the defeat.
– That’s how it is. We wanted to play in the Champions League and in all tournaments. This is what we want. We have lost many players, but this is the time to stand up and give more. Trippier says: The national team break comes at the right time for us.
With this victory, the South Coast team, Bournemouth, achieved an important victory in its struggle for the bottom of the league. They are now three points behind relegated Luton.
Newcastle is fighting for first place in the English Premier League and had not lost in seven matches before Saturday’s match. Among others, they were without strikers Alexander Isak and Callum Wilson, star midfielder Bruno Guimarães and defenders Sven Botman and Dan Byrne on Saturday.

The first goal came after an hour of play. Bournemouth were somewhat lucky when the ball bounced into Newcastle’s 16-yard penalty area. Solanke was there first and slotted it into the net.
A quarter of an hour later, the same man put the ball into the goal after a corner kick. This is Solanke’s sixth league result so far this season, the same number he scored throughout last season.

Newcastle’s injury list has been getting longer and longer of late, and on Saturday, several players had to count their numbers. Newcastle are fighting on several fronts this autumn, and they are in a tough group in the Champions League.
The team is in seventh place after twelve matches. The next round awaits Chelsea.
