Newcastle United secured a vital three points last weekend by beating Watford at St. James’ Park, bringing an end to their winless streak in the Premier League.

The Magpies had picked up just two points from their opening 10 matches prior to the victory over the Hornets but the victory has since seen Rafael Benitez’s side rise out of the relegation zone.

There is still a lot of work to do though and another stern test is on the horizon this weekend against Eddie Howe’s high-flying Bournemouth, who have lost just three games so far this term – two of which were against Chelsea and Manchester United.

Newcastle will certainly have to be at their best ahead of their hosting of the Cherries and a positive boost has been provided this week, with it revealed that Jamaal Lascelles looks set to be fit for the game.

We have gathered some of the best responses to the news from fans on social media.
