Tammy Abraham could have joined Newcastle United - Rafael Benitez

Newcastle United's 1-0 loss to Bournemouth on Saturday condemned the Magpies to back-to-back 1-0 defeats in the Premier League, with Rafael Benitez's side continuing to struggle to find their feet in front of goal.

Newcastle have not won a home match against Bournemouth since 1990. I was happy before the game with how we have been doing but disappointed now.

He said: "In football, you have to play well, create chances and take them and don't make mistakes, and we didn't do that".

Replays show Gayle was just level as Matt Ritchie struck to hit the post before the striker rolled the ball home, and though despondent manager Benitez was clearly unhappy with the officials, he kept his own counsel when asked about the disallowed goal.

The former Liverpool boss is content with his side's start to the new campaign but is all-too-aware that the Geordies need to reach higher climbs if they are to stave off the threat of relegation, with games against United, Chelsea and Arsenal all soon to come.

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.

"When you look at the teams he has managed, the track record he has is second to none and he is well known to be tactically very astute", said Howe.

Meanwhile, Cook - who headed an injury-time corner past Rob Elliot - told of his "relief" at the result.

"It was huge for me".
