STOKE ON TRENT, ENGLAND - JANUARY 01: Rafael Benitez, Manager of Newcastle United shows appreciation to the fans after the Premier League match between Stoke City and Newcastle United at Bet365 Stadium on January 1, 2018 in Stoke on Trent, England.
The Premier League can be a maddening, chaotic place for managers.
The Magies broke the deadlock with their first meaningful chance of the afternoon seven minutes later when Jonjo Shelvey's long ball was diverted into the penalty area by Matt Ritchie, allowing Gayle to bundle the ball beyond Asmir Begovic with a tricky backheel.
Steve Cook scored a 92nd-minute victor in Bournemouth's 1-0 win at Newcastle in November.
Do Spurs really need Toby Alderweireld?
He is an athlete and he could play until he is 40 because his physical condition comes very naturally to him". He is a great talent but he is still young.
In first-half added time, the Magpies doubled their lead.
Newcastle had looked comfortable, and were repeatedly hitting the home side on the break, when Shelvey misses a glorious chance in the 79th minute.
There was still time for Bournemouth to pull off a remarkable turnaround but Newcastle did at least save a point, yet they still have plenty of work to do to preserve their top-flight status.
Bournemouth have not beaten Newcastle at home in the league since 1989, back in the old Division Two.
Benitez expects Slimani to feature for Newcastle sooner rather than later but is pleased with the quality of players at his disposal, having produced a 1-0 league victory over against Manchester United this month.
