Newcastle toiled without Merino in the midfield as a number of loose passes allowed Bournemouth to break, putting pressure on the home goal that resulted in Steve Cook's late victor.

Howe felt that Christian Atsu - who didn't play a league game for Bournemouth during a half-season loan at the Vitality Stadium - was one of Newcastle's most risky players. I was happy before the game with how we have been doing but disappointed now.

"They have some key players that can hurt you like (Matt) Ritchie and (Jonjo) Shelvey".

Just ten goals have been scored by Newcastle this season, a ratio that needs to be improved, but the Magpies have impressed defensively as they've conceded just ten goals- keeping three clean sheets in the process. I have seen it [the disallowed Dwight Gayle goal] but it will not change anything.

Jacob Murphy replaced Christian Atsu with the score at 0-0 and with eight minutes remaining, but his brief cameo appearance did not have the desired effect on his Newcastle side, and ultimately they ended up conceding an agonising victor.

Benitez had revealed that he wanted to see an improvement in Gayle's general training, before rewarding him with the opportunity to start and the forward obviously took the challenge well.

"It was a massive relief", said Cook.

Perez has made 11 appearances across all competitions this season, starting every single game before Saturday's defeat on Tyneside to Eddie Howe's side. To come up here and get a clean sheet and a win is outstanding.
