Eddie Howe labelled Bournemouth's 2-2 draw with Newcastle "a unusual afternoon" after his side scored twice in the last 10 minutes. "Rafa Benitez will be livid and that's why sometimes he doesn't play him, because he's the best passer in their team, but moments like that can cost you a game".

The Premier League is back for Match Day 28 of the 2017-18 season, which will feature a highly intriguing mid-table clash.

"When you go to the last days of the window in this situation, it is always a risk to sign an injured player, but we had to do it".

And parity was restored in the 89th minute as former Newcastle midfielder Gosling turned home from Nathan Ake's ball into the box.

Newcastle supporters gave former Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe a predictably hostile reception when he came off the bench after two months out with an ankle injury.

Rafa Benitez has confirmed that Slimani has sustained an injury in training that will further keep him out of the lineup.

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 manager Eddie Howe praised his players' resolve and felt it was vital they did not lose to another relegation rival, having been beaten 4-1 at Huddersfield last time out.

"I think my heart is being tested this season", he told reporters after the match.

"I certainly feel it during the match - today was tough". 'You have to realise where you are but it's to be sure that the team continue fighting, playing well and with the belief that we can win, that we can get points anywhere.

"It's really encouraging that today we played a team in and around us and it's really important you don't get beaten by those teams and defeats to Huddersfield and Newcastle would have left us in a hard position".
